The town of Gloucester is a hero because it challenged AGL's fracking and won.
Then they challenged Rocky Hill Coal mine in court and won, setting a world precedent. The judge in the Land and Environment court said this was the wrong time in history for a new coal mine.
Vivien went to the Sustainable Futures Weekend in Gloucester . Workshops were on Active Hope, A new Society Emerging right now, What does a future worth fighting for look like? Having a First People's heart and a Thriving Democracy.
We were welcomed by the Waang Djarri dancers and there was a song Raining on the Rock. Thank s to the young singer (I did not catch his name.) And thanks to Julie Lyford and the Groundswell Gloucester team who made us feel so welcome. This town is certainly the mouse that roars.
