|The Co-operative presents Gasland, as part of its Toxic Fuels campaign, which aims to highlight the global trend of extracting oil and gas from unconventional sources, such as tar sands and gas shales. Such exploitation threatens global efforts to avoid dangerous levels of climate change and risks local ecological disaster.
It is coming to the Chapter Arts Centre cinema, Canton, Cardiff ( http://www.chapter.org/planvisit/index.HTML ) to coincide with the Cardiff Conference.
It is a MUST SEE film for all who want to understand why we should be so concerned about the proposed fracking in Bridgend County – everyone in Llangeinor, Lewistown, Ognore Vale, Blackmill, Bettws, and Bridgend itself should see this movie!!
And it has just been nominated for an OSCAR too! Yesterday it was announced that Gasland has been nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. UK film critics have hailed Gasland as “Powerful, disturbing and important” (The Sunday Mirror) and “Essential viewing” (The Observer), to name but a few.
Bridgend Green Party members should therefore clear their diaries and get into Cardiff for a day at Conference ( http://www.greenparty.org.uk/conference.html ) followed by an evening at the cinema!! See you all there!
