Mine your food bowl?

"This Cloudcatcher film captures the plight of farming families on the Liverpool Plains being bulldozed by the might of Beijing's Shenhua coal corporation. It comes down to growing good food in a planet facing food shortages versus massive coal pits to line the pockets of men who will never go near, see or care two hoots about the Liverpool Plains or their farmers.

In the national interest the state and federal governments must intervene and protect the farmers. But will they? That's up to us - you and me, as well as the farmers. Do what you can to help and do it now."
