Bob Brown Foundation will host a virtual event tomorrow night, Tuesday 5th May 7:30pm-8:30pm, to celebrate the anniversary of the groundbreaking Stop Adani Convoy. On May 5 last year thousands of people rallied on Parliament Lawns in Canberra after the Convoy arrived.
The virtual event will include the online release of the documentary CONVOY. The Foundation will host a live Q&A event online with Bob Brown, film director Matthew Newton, AdaniWatch investigator Geoff Law and Galilee Blockade organiser Ben Pennings.
CONVOY has screened across Australia at twenty sold-out venues. The film follows Bob Brown and the Stop Adani Convoy’s epic road trip from Tasmania to the Galilee Basin in Far North Queensland, a distance of over 3500 kilometres, to stop the development of the Carmichael coal mine.
"To celebrate the historic Stop Adani Convoy's first anniversary, we are proud to host a special virtual event which sees the online release of the film CONVOY and a live panel so people can dig deeper into the stories behind the epic journey and the ongoing campaign to stop the Adani Carmichael coal mine," said Jenny Weber.
"CONVOY is an intimate look at what it takes to undertake a major environmental act of defiance. It follows former Greens leader Bob Brown, and the many concerned Australians that join him, as he sets out on an epic road trip from Tasmania to the Galilee Basin in Far North Queensland, a journey of over 3500 kilometres, to stop the development of the Carmichael coalmine. People can now watch this film from the comfort of their lounge rooms, help us celebrate what was a truly remarkable event and learn how to get involved in the ongoing campaign to Stop Adani," said Ms Weber.
