An inspiring film to start the new year! Let’s keep 2018 frack free…find out how they resisted this unwanted industry in one part of Australia, in this award winning documentary. Free entry, donations welcome.

When the coal seam gas industry staked a claim on the Northern Rivers shire of Australia people from all walks of life organised themselves against it. The final battle lines were drawn in the peaceful farming valley of Bentley. This timely story of a community’s heroic stand shows how strategic direct action and peaceful protest from a committed community can overcome industrial might and political short-sightedness.
