This year marks the 40th Anniversary of the Terania Creek blockade that formed to protect an area of ancient Gondwana rainforest up on Bundjalung country.
The forest defenders came for a day, ended up staying a month, and then stayed for 10 years. They used a number of creative and ingenious blockading techniques and political strategies that are still used across the environment movement today.
This 1980 documentary shows the story of this campaign that brought rainforest preservation into public consciousness and led to the formation of the Nightcap National Park.
Join us for a screening to celebrate a pivotal moment in this lands history, and stay after for some snacks, discussion and reflection.
There will be snacks, and please bring something to share if you can.
Movie will start at 7pm.
