Frack Free Manawatu are offering an Information afternoon that includes short films, presentations with discussion and afternoon tea.

Topics: Fracking, it's adverse effects on bees, public health, the environment; and how we affect positive change.

Speakers: Jean Kahui, Maree Docherty, Dr. Fred Hirst.

After the Paris Climate Talks in 2015, Environmentalist Bill McKibben wrote “You’ve got to stop fracking right away (in fact, that may be the greatest imperative of all, since methane gas does its climate damage so fast). You have to start installing solar panels and windmills at a breakneck pace…”

Meanwhile, in New Zealand, Nova plan to build two more Gas-Fired Power Plants. These plants will produce electricity from fracked gas.

"Nicotine Bees" A Film from the Manawatu Bee Club Library will start at 3pm. Nicotine Bees is a documentary looking at neonicotinoid pesticides and catastrophic honeybee collapses worldwide.
