Morning Teas in August - Brisbane Northside - It's Treat time!

Friday, August 01, 2014 at 10:00 AM · 2 rsvps

Lock the Gate is planning free morning teas in your area during August!  We'll supply a scrumptious morning tea for you and six friends and/or family at your home.  And if you need it, we'll provide entertainment for the kids with child care professionals.

While the kids are entertained and cared for, we'd like to show you a short documentary called 'Undermined'.  It's an informative and powerful overview of families and communities struggling against mining companies.

This battle is huge and growing in Queensland, with some of the largest mines in the world planned in our State.  Our food, land and water are at risk.

Please register your interest by rsvping here, or you can email brisbanelockthegate@gmail.com with any queries.  We'd love to hear from you!

Fractured Country at Parliament House Sydney

Parliament House, NSW , 6 Macquarie Street, Sydney

Join us at Parliament House for a screening of Lock The Gate's powerful documentary 'Fractured Country - an Unconventional Invasion' narrated by Jack Thompson.

Alex Greenwich, MP for Sydney and Julie Lyford, former Mayor of Gloucester will introduce the film, which exposes the vast scale of the threat to our country from unconventional gas mining. More than half of Australia and 80% of NSW is covered in gas exploration licences and applications. Even Sydney’s drinking water catchment is under threat.

But despite this devastating reality, Australians are rising up to protect the country they love, and communities are taking on the mining giants and winning. This is a time when ordinary people become heroes.

RSVP essential.

All NSW MPs will be invited to join a post-screening panel discussion and their attendance or otherwise will be communicated to our supporters in their constituents.

But in the face of this, we are witnessing one of the biggest social movements in our country’s history – a time when ordinary people become heroes.

RSVPs essential
