Frackman the Movie
Dayne Pratzky loved the quiet life on his rural block in central Queensland. Then the coal seam gas company arrived, and that changed everything. Legally he couldn’t stop them mining his land, but that didn’t mean he wouldn’t fight. And so began a David and Goliath battle against a $200 Billion industry. Along the way he found love, tragedy and triumph.
Frackman is like no other Australian film. It aims to spark a broad national conversation about the risks of our headlong rush into massive coal seam gas development. Five years in the making, it not only entertains and engages, it also gives audiences the tools to get involved in what is becoming the largest social movement our nation has seen in decades. It’s a deeply political film, but not the old style that is so badly failing us. This is the New Politics, bringing together old and young, city and country, conservative and progressive in a shared effort to prevent an environmental catastrophe. Can we imagine any other issue that would bring together the likes of Alan Jones and Bob Brown?
See it and find out why.
The Greens have a Bill in the Legislative Council to prohibit coal seam gas in New South Wales. The ALP have moved amendments to that Bill to give it a chance of passing with broad political support. This is an unprecedented opportunity. If the amended Bill gets through the upper house with broad political support it will force the Government to face up to broad community opposition to unconventional gas. It will be sent to the lower house for debate and consideration. Join us in Sydney and online for the Upper House vote on the Bill.
To help get it across the line, send an email to all members of the NSW Upper House to encourage them to #voteYES on this important Bill.
