Adani, Tarkine under spotlight at Bruns film night

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.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
