Guarding the Galilee

Presented by Queensland born actor Michael Caton, Guarding the Galilee is a 30 minute documentary on the battle to stop the biggest coal mine in Australian history, Adani’s Carmichael project.

The award-winning documentary team captures the raw beauty of the Queensland outback, where Adani’s mine threatens essential water resources.

Just downstream from the proposed mine, a grazier fears for the impact on the river that quenches the thirst of his cattle, and flows to the Coral Sea.

On the coast, a boat owner operating out of the Airlie Beach tourist hotspot worries about hundreds of extra ships steaming through the Great Barrier Reef each year.

Meet these and many others engaged in the fight and find out what mining billionaire Guatam Adani has planned for Australia.

Donations for the Stop Adani campaign will be gratefully accepted at the door.
