Houses without smoke detectors very alarming

Fire & Rescue NSW is always busy and the nation-wide fires in recent years have highlighted the importance and value of our firefighters.

Two of the most important environmental issues of our time, the massive Adani coal mine and the Tarkine wilderness, will be the focus of a night of film, live entertainment and discussion at Brunswick Heads on Wednesday.

The two films: ‘Guarding the Galilee’, which looks inside the fight to stop Adani coal, followed by ‘Tarkine in Motion’, on one of the last great wilderness areas on the planet, will show at the Brunswick Picture House from 6.30pm.

The films will be followed by a Q&A discussion with NSW Greens MP Dawn Walker and Tod Walsh and Sumeena Keshow from the Bob Brown Foundation, which produced the Tarkine documentary.

The event is organised by the Byron Greens with proceeds going towards the Stop Adani movement.

Live music is from 6.30pm, with screenings at 7pm.

Tickets are $13/$15 and can be bought online through Try Booking or at the door on the night.
