12 pm – 2pm Footbridge Theatre, The University of Sydney
The Rivers SOS Alliance invites you to the screening of their second film Rivers of Shame 2. Despite the fact that water resources in Australia are now even more precarious given climate change and global warming, coal mining corporations are being allowed to degrade major rivers and waterways in New South Wales to the extent that some will never recover.
Background: The film shows the way environmental bio-diversity and aquatic systems of major rivers and waterways have been damaged or threatened by mining operations, and includes interviews with people who live near the rivers and can see the damage being done at first hand.
Rivers SOS is an alliance of now 41 community groups (and growing) in NSW campaigning for a safety zone of at least 1 km around all rivers systems in NSW, in order to protect them from the severe damage being done by poorly regulated mining operations. No registration or RSVP is required – so please just come along.
