Movie & dinner night: “Dirt” the movie 2nd Feb

Adelaide Sustainability Centre invites you to a free movie night at the Joinery with a shared community dinner. This will be of particular interest to Fair Food Adelaide folk.

Film Night & Shared Community Dinner

DIRT! The Movie–narrated by Jamie Lee Curtis–brings to life the environmental, economic, social and political impact that the soil has. It shares the stories of experts from all over the world who study and are able to harness the beauty and power of a respectful and mutually beneficial relationship with soil.

But more than the film and the lessons that it teaches, DIRT! The Movie is a call to action. “When humans arrived 2 million years ago, everything changed for dirt. And from that moment on, the fate of dirt and humans has been intimately linked.”

How can you affect that relationship for the better?

Chip in to help fund Indigenous Land Rights

FOE’s former nuclear campaigner Nectaria Calan invites us to contribute to Adnyamathanha woman Leslie Coulthard travelling to South America for an Indigenous Land Rights exchange. Every little bit helps.

Mapuche Aboriginal Exchange Gofundme link

Nectaria writes:

“The Mapuche Aboriginal exchange is coming up in February this year, and although the organising collective has been tirelessly fundraising for over a year, they cannot completely fund all participants. They have allocated half of the money needed per participant ($1400) for Adnyamathanha woman and current Australian Nuclear Free Alliance committee member Leslie Coulthard to participate, so I am looking to raise another $1400 fund her trip. Over the years the Adyamathanha have faced various threats to their lands, from uranium mines (Arkaroola and Beverley) to the current proposal for an underground coal gasification project at Leigh Creek. The Adnyamathanha have always stood strong in protecting country and it would be very special if a community member could travel to Chile for this historic cultural exchange, which will see Aboriginal and other first nations peoples hosted by a Mapuche community for two weeks. This kind of face to face exchange is invaluable for building global solidarity between indigenous peoples facing common threats to country. Please help make this happen.

A group of Traditional Owners plus representatives from the ACF, the Conservation Council and Friends of the Earth met with the Premier to show him evidence that 35,000 Australians do not want a nuclear waste dump in SA.

South Australia is a renewable energy success story. The state is fast approaching 50% renewables and has booming solar, energy storage, and wind power sectors.

This success has made South Australia public enemy #1 for the fossil fuel lobby, who will do anything to stop our transition to 100% renewables.… Read more >>
