11 Nov: Community Film Screening Wanneroo: Frackman

Hosted by the Frack Free Future Alliance. 6.30pm, Wanneroo Community Centre, Civic Dr, Wanneroo.

"Dayne Pratzky loved the quiet life on his rural block in central Queensland. Then the gas company arrived, and everything changed.

Legally Dayne couldn’t stop them mining his land, but that didn’t mean he wouldn’t fight. So began a David and Goliath battle. Along the way he found love, tragedy and triumph.

This is a must see movie for anyone concerned about protecting our water, farm land and communities from the invasive unconventional gas industry".

As the unconventional gas industry gears up to invade Western Australia, this shocking movie serves as a wake up call to us all.

Our drinking water sources are already at risk from fracking, and gas exploration licenses exist in Wanneroo shire and the Swan Valley.
