If you are contacting your MP with seasonal greetings, perhaps also suggest that they get a copy of this for Chrimbo! “Frackman” tells the story of accidental activist Dayne Pratzky and the Australian peoples’ struggle against the fracking industry that Forbes noted was a Ponzi Scheme 5 years ago!!
The media bumph says
“Australia will soon become the world’s biggest gas exporter as more than 30,000 wells are sunk in the state of Queensland where Dayne lives, with many requiring controversial “fracking”. He and his neighbours have unwittingly become the centre of a massive industrial landscape and they have no legal right to stop mining on their land. Dayne embarks on a journey that transforms him from conservative pig-shooter to sophisticated global activist as the Frackman. He meets the people drawn into a battle that is crossing the ideological divide, bringing together a peculiar alliance of farmers, activists and political conservatives. Along the way Dayne encounters love, tragedy and triumph”
Good on the Australian Environmental Movement for bringing this big issue to the big screen!
