The Bentley Effect

20 November 2017 @ 7:30 am - 9:00 pm

Chesterfield Climate Alliance film screening at Chesterfield Library.

The fight against fracking needed a hero. Over 10,000 people put their hands up.

Filmed over five years, The Bentley Effect documents the highs and lows of the battle to keep a unique part of Australia gasfield-free. This timely story of a community’s heroic stand shows how strategic direct action and peaceful protest from a committed community can overcome industrial might and political short-sightedness. It celebrates the non-violent ‘Eureka Stockade’ of our time and chronicles one of the fastest growing social movements we have ever witnessed.

Come along to a free film screening organised by Chesterfield Climate Alliance in the library theatre (downstairs near the cafe), New Beetwell St, Chesterfield, S40 1QN.
