The Clarence Valley Conservation Coalition’s September Earth Matters session will be held on Monday September 17 at 5.30 pm. It will be a screening of the documentary “Sacrifice Zone: the story of the real Australian gas crisis”.
“Sacrifice Zone” deals with the threat of invasive gasfields facing communities west of the range.
Santos wants to establish multiple gasfields in NSW, starting in the Pilliga forest, near Narrabri. This area is a critical recharge zone for the Great Artesian Basin. The water in this basin is vital for communities and agriculture across vast areas of inland Australia. In addition the Pilliga forest is a very important natural area, habitat for a variety of threatened species including the koala.
This film by Cloudcatcher Media illustrates the concerns of community members and the Great Artesian Protection Group.
The CVCC is asking those attending to contribute a gold coin as a donation to Cloudcatcher Media.
The venue is the Staffroom at Grafton Primary School, Queen Street, Grafton from 5.30 – 7 p.m. on Monday September 21.
Refreshments will follow the screening.
