The Lismore Library meeting room, in Magellan Street, will be the venue for a film evening with two half-hour documentaries that look at the issues behind the Adani mine proposal and the fight to stop it, in Queensland’s Galilee Basin.
Doors open at 5.30 pm this Thursday, March 22, for the event hosted by the Stop Adani Lismore group.
The 30-minute Guarding the Galilee documentary starts at 6pm and covers the issues and impact on the region if the mine goes ahead. ‘A Mighty Force’ screens at 7pm and tells the story of local people and those from further afield, fighting to stop the destructive mining venture from proceeding.
There will be refreshments and live music from Triple J unearthed artist Leif Morris and it is ‘a relaxed way for people to get a better understanding of what is at stake in the development of mega mines in the Galilee basin in Queensland,’ according Stop Adani group spokesperson Tom Driftwood.
‘Come for one or come for both movies,’ he said, adding, ‘it’s a free event but of course donations would always be welcome on the night.’
