This film is about a fight of our times- for our future climate security and for the life of our Great Barrier Reef. During the Buddhist Action Month, we’ve been looking at social and environmental issues and how we can make a difference. The evening is also a fundraiser.
Come and watch, discuss, and have tea and cake.
Karunamitra and Gillian
PS- please do share this far and wide.
Filled with stories from the front lines of the proposed Adani coal mine, the award-winning documentary team captures the raw beauty of the Queensland outback, where Adani’s mine threatens essential water resources.
Just downstream from the proposed mine, a grazier fears for the impact on the river that quenches the thirst of his cattle, and flows to the Coral Sea.
On the coast, a boat owner operating out of the Airlie Beach tourist hotspot worries about hundreds of extra ships steaming through the Great Barrier Reef each year.
Meet these and many others engaged in the fight and find out what mining billionaire Guatam Adani has planned for Australia.
The energy of metta spreads through your bloodstream and nourishes your whole being. You look bright and clear, calm and peaceful.
