A special screening of feature documentary, Cultivating Murder is being held at the Manning Uniting Centre in Taree on Sunday, May 6.
Cultivating Murder is a feature documentary that tells the story of the murder of Glen Turner, a public servant working for the office of environment and heritage.
Mr Turner was investigating illegal land clearing when he was gunned down on the side of a public road in Croppa Creek, near Moree.
The killer, wealthy NSW rural producer, Ian Turnbull had previously been prosecuted for illegal land clearing.
Land clearing has already resulted in massive habitat destruction and loss of native species in NSW.
In 2018, the State Government accelerated this process by replacing the native vegetation and threatened species laws with the cynically named biodiversity conservation regulations.
Rather than conserving biodiversity, these laws do the exact opposite by allowing further clearing of native vegetation and ignoring the plight of threatened species.
Dr Mehreen Fahruqi, Greens MLC will take part in a question and answer session after the screening.
Tickets can be purchased for $15.50 or $9.50 for concession at www.stickytickets.com.au/67021.
