November Movie Night- Guarding the Galilee
For November’s movie we’ll be screening the short Aussie documentary about the Galilee basin in Queensland. You’ve probably heard the name Adani in the media recently, come along and hear what’s happening on the ground and how you can help the community.

Proceeded by another short film.

“Filled with stories from the front lines of the proposed Adani coal mine, Guardians of the Galilee captures the raw beauty of the Queensland outback, where Adani’s mine threatens essential water resources, and so much more.

Presented by Queensland born actor Michael Caton, Guarding the Galilee is a 30 minute documentary on the battle to stop the biggest coal mine in Australian history, Adani’s Carmichael project.”

Please RSVP via Eventbrite to help the kitchen know how many to expect.
