Guarding the Galilee

Come in to watch Nell Schofield's powerful documentary
on the battle to stop the biggest coal mine in Australian history,
Adani’s Carmichael project. 

Presented by Queensland born actor Michael Caton, Guarding the Galilee captures the raw beauty of the Queensland outback, where Adani’s mine threatens essential water resources. 

Just downstream from the proposed mine, a grazier fears for the impact on the river that quenches the thirst of his cattle, and flows to the Coral Sea. On the coast, a boat owner operating out of the Airlie Beach tourist hotspot worries about hundreds of extra ships steaming through the Great Barrier Reef each year. Meet these and many others engaged in the fight!

Gautam Adani is an Indian billionaire who wants to build the biggest coal mine in Australia’s history in Central Queensland’s Galilee Basin. The Federal Government wants to give him $1 billion of public money to build a rail line from the mine to Abbot Point where the coal would be shipped to India.

If this mine goes ahead it would open up a coal resource that, if burned, would double Australia’s carbon emissions.

Guarding The Galilee explores the impacts of this project and actions we can take to stop it. 

The producer Nell Schofield will join us to follow up with panel discussion.
Come in to understand better this very important decision our government is debating
and the direction it might take us. What are the pros and cons of such a strategy?
