Total Protest in Denmark are hosting an informative night with the screening of the two new groundbreaking documentaries from Lock the Gate Alliance.
- Fractured Country, documenting the invasion of Australia by the unconventional gas industry, and
- Undermining Australia, about the threat that major coal mining expansion poses to our health and farmland.
The two documentaries capture in stark terms the personal heartache of Australians whose lives have been changed forever by coal and gas mining and the heroic actions everyday people are taking to defend the country they love.
Come and see 2 groundbreaking half hour documentaries about the impacts of coal and unconventional gas mining on Australia. Films feature personal stories of Australians whose lives have been changed forever and their courageous efforts to protect the country we love.
