NSW is facing its biggest threat right now from invasive gasfields. Betrayal by governments has left protectors fighting to save what they love. The Pilliga, Great Artesian Basin, Liverpool Plains – all are at risk. This is a David and Goliath battle to save our land, air and water. It’s also a fight for the soul and future of Australia. Hear from the experts and people living in the sacrifice zone and uncover the truth behind the real gas crisis confronting ordinary Australians.
