Melbourne Rises for the Reef

Stopping the Adani mega coal mine is the fight of our times and we are bringing that fight into the heart of Melbourne.

On Saturday 16th September we will be screening the inspiring Guarding the Galilee documentary at Federation Square's iconic big screen.

Right when we need to be urgently phasing

out our use of coal, oil and gas to reduce global warming, building a giant new coal mine will only make it harder to avoid catastrophic climate change. Burning more coal will lead to more extreme weather and further bleaching of the Great Barrier Reef.

In addition the Adani mine will threaten water supplies and the Great Artesian Basin, it will trash the rights of the local indigenous people and result in more shipping through the Reef.

Guarding the Galilee is an entertaining documentary featuring the people on the front lines of the battle to stop the Adani Carmichael coal mine.

Narrated and presented by Michael Caton, the film features reef operators, graziers, dive instructors, environmentalists and many more concerned about the impacts of the mine. The award-winning documentary team captures the raw beauty of Central Queensland, where Adani’s mine threatens essential water resources.

This is your chance to find out why Adani's mega mine is so dangerous, and help us build more public pressure to stop this mine from being built.
