SHINE A LIGHT (For The NSW North West)
Inspired by Dorothea Mackellar's poem My Country and Luke Vassella created Shine a Light as a rallying cry for communities facing invasive mining on prime agricultural land in the Liverpool Plains and across Australia.
We don't need no Coal Monsters!
The LPP community have spent $750,000 fighting this madness so far! There are more battles to come before we can save our water and precious Ag land – for more information on how you can add your support, visit: http://www.friendsoftheliverpoolplains.com and help us win this fight.
– On Friday 21 August 2015 Liverpool Plains Youth and supporters drove a convoy of tractors through threatened prime agricultural land from near Gunnedah in NSW to Breeza, close to the proposed Shenhua mega-coal mine. Independent Tasmanian Senator Jacqui Lambie and Jeremy Buckingham MLC from the NSW Greens were also present. The message was simple: protect the Liverpool Plains!

I defy anyone (other than a coal head) to watch that video and not be moved into wanting to stop the mine, and that is what we wanted.'
– John Hamparsum, Breeza
'This Cloudcatcher film captures the plight of farming families on the Liverpool Plains.'
– Bob Brown
More than 90% of the Territory is covered by gas exploration licenses and applications and the NT Government is actively promoting and supporting the roll out of the shale gas industry. No shale gas production has commenced yet, but shale gas exploration includes fracking processes.
In this film David Lowe compiles footage from several sources and makes something awesome

'The BYS is in major financial crisis due to massive government funding cuts. Eve and David from Cloudcatcher Media have gone above and beyond making a crowd funding movie to hopefully help save us. Not only did they do it for a remarkably generous fee but it is outstandingly professional, emotive and captures beautifully what goes on at the Mullumbimby Cottage.
I, and the rest of the BYS team, are enormously grateful for their work, for their generosity of spirit, their humour, cleverness and creativity. They are part of what makes this shire unique, they understand and do all they can to support worthy causes in the most original and honest of ways.
