Friends of Leadbeater's Possum

Sunday, 15 July 2018 - 8:00pm
Cinema Nova 380 Lygon St, Carlton
Victoria

Film Fundraiser for the legal campaign to protect the Leadbeater’s possum and its magnificent habitat.

Gurrumul is a rich and stirring portrayal of Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupungu, one of Australia’s most acclaimed and important musicians, singers and peformers.

For all of us caring about and working for social and environmental justice, Gurrumul is a story that deepens understanding and respectful collaboration between indigenous and non-indigenous Australians. Our legal action is part of an ongoing campaign to encourage understanding and respect for the ecological values of Victoria’s iconic Ash forests and to protect the Greater Gliders and critically endangered Leadbeater’s Possum.

* Definite time will be confirmed but will be close to 3.00pm

More information about the campaign
Friends of Leadbeater’s Possum has been campaigning for more than a decade to stop Ash forests being clear felled and destroyed. But critical habitat continues to be laid waste by logging and vulnerable animals and plants are being wiped out. Forests we walk in, visit, and love; forests that provide our drinking water and clean our air are being devastated.

Years of community and political campaigns to save the magnificent forests of Victoria’s Central Highlands have not done enough to end the threat. Last year Friends of Leadbeater’s Possum launched legal action in the Federal Court to challenge the industry’s exemption from Commonwealth regulations We are represented by Environmental Justice Australia.

Please come upstairs and there will be a Friends of Leadbeater’s Possum table. Tickets to be paid in cash only: $20 (Concession) or $25 Solidarity. Bookings essential: Jackie mansourian.black@gmail.com.
