We are excited to announce and invite you to a special fundraising and Q&A event to celebrate the anniversary of the Stop Adani Convoy.
On Tuesday May 5, the Bob Brown Foundation will be hosting a screening of our film 'CONVOY' to mark the anniversary of the Stop Adani Convoy. On May 5 last year thousands of people rallied on Parliament Lawns in Canberra after the Convoy arrived.
CONVOY 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, with the aim of stopping the development of the Carmichael coalmine.
Following the movie we'll also host a special Q&A with Bob Brown, film Director Matthew Newton, AdaniWatch investigator Geoff Law and Galilee Blockade organiser Ben Pennings.
During the Q&A you'll hear and learn more about Foundation's AdaniWatch project and how you can be part of the campaign to Stop Adani.
Also showing at this virtual event will be the virtual Stop Adani Hallelujah Chorus, and you can join.
To be a part of this special one-off event all you need to do is purchase your ticket. Each ticket includes access to the film and a live Q&A which will be centred around the filmmaking, the campaign, and what you can do to support it.
Here you can also purchase the accompanying 'Convoy' book which has inspirational speeches from Stop Adani Convoy rallies, including acclaimed author Richard Flanagan and Aboriginal defender Adrian Burragubba when you purchase your ticket.
How does it work?
Step 1: Watch the film. Each ticket holder will have a unique link to watch the film; we recommend the latest you do this is at 6.30pm AEST on Tuesday 5 May but we will send you the links in advance so you can watch earlier if preferable.
Step 2: Join the Q&A. You will be sent a link to join the live Q&A at 6pm AEST on Tuesday 5 May. All registered attendees can ask questions and interact live with the panelists, including Bob, members of the film and campaign team.
This way you can watch the film at the same time as others as it streams to you simultaneously and be part of an interactive question and answer time immediately after.
Please note: If the cost is a barrier, or if you require a captioned version of the film, please send us a message or contact [email protected]
Convoy film synopsis
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 distance of over 3500 kilometres, with the aim of stopping the development of the Carmichael coalmine.
This is a film about the power of peaceful protest and the power of individuals to make a difference and a study of true leadership. It explores how grassroots campaigning can shift public and political opinion. It will show what motivates individuals to take a stand and encourage and empower others to do the same.
