Frackman – anti-gas fracking film Feb 24

FRACKMAN – Mercury Cinema

Tuesday February 24, 8:30pm

“If you care about our country, see it!” – Alan Jones

“No Australian voter should miss this film”  Bob Brown

This is a film about the ordinary people caught up in a modern day multinational “gas rush” to secure and exploit coal seam gas. Accidental activist Dayne ‘Frackman’ Pratzky was building a simple home on his property, until the Gas company arrived, demanding to install wells on his property. So began his transformation from knockabout pig-shooter to passionate activist, and a David and Goliath battle against a $200 billion industry. Along the way he finds love, tragedy and triumph.

This special DocWeek preview session includes a post screening meet the filmmakers event with director Richard Todd and producer Trish Lake.

Foe Submission to the Nuclear Fuel Cycle Royal Commission Terms of Reference

SA Premier Jay Weatherill recently announced a Royal Commission into the nuclear fuel cycle and gave the public one week to make submissions into the terms of reference.

He says he is motivated by concerns over climate change and the state of SA’s economy.

The royal commission will look at uranium enrichment, nuclear power and a nuclear waste dump. Environment groups are calling for it to include issues with existing uranium mining, legacy waste sites, export markets and weapons proliferation as well as a close examination of the impact of a proposed dump on remote communities. We also call for a full economic analysis of nuclear power in relation to renewables.

A group of people who want to work together over the next year of the royal commission is forming. Meetings will be hosted by the Conservation Council at their new HQ 111 Franklin St Adelaide (the old bus station, next to the new bus station).  The group is currently meeting on Tuesdays, please contact Robyn for more information robyn.wood@foe.org.au

“Break Up With Your Bank” – Divestment Day in the Mall

Members of Friends of the Earth volunteered with the Conservation Council last week to help make placards  for Divestment Day in the mall last Friday 13th.  We also donated some tinsel wigs for the Tina Turner inspired all-singing all-dancing action.

We encourage everyone to break up with the Big 4 banks; all of whom  invest in the fossil fuel industry.  We also encourage you to find out what industries your superannuation is invested in, and consider changing funds if fossil fuels are in the mix.

If you need help contact FoE affiliate Market Forces “Your money as a force for good”.
