The Australian Koala Foundation would like to invite you to attend the Queensland Premiere screening of Cultivating Murder in New Farm on the 22nd November. Deborah believes all members of the public should see this film.
Cultivating Murder is a new feature documentary that tells the heart-wrenching story of the murder of Glen Turner, a public servant working for the Office of Environment and Heritage, who was gunned down on the side of a public road in Croppa Creek, 40 kilometres from Moree in 2014.
Glen Turner was investigating illegal land clearing when he was murdered, and since his death we have seen the NSW Government throw out the Native Vegetation Act and replace it with legislation that will allow even greater broad scale land clearing to occur, much as it has in Queensland. It reveals the pressure of recent rapid expansion in agribusiness as the laws protecting the environment are weakened across Australia. The illegal land clearing covered in the film was in critical Koala habitat.
There will also be a Q&A with the filmmaker and special guests, including Deborah.
If you would like to attend, tickets are available from stickytickets.
The Australian Koala Foundation has issued a press release about the premiere as well.
We hope to see you and there on the evening for this vitally important film.
