Tunnel Vision is the story of a remarkable citizens movement where lawful, civil disobedience, savvy social media strategies and direct action undermined a government spin campaign, challenged vested interests, excited mass media, confronted police and won the campaign to stop an $18 billion toll road
People from all echelons of society came together to question the dubious politics and flawed processes of the EW Link Project, as well as the narrow focus on roads, at the expense of public transport and livability.
The East West Link campaign demonstrated that a healthy democracy is one in which citizens contribute to decision making, and have a role to play in meaningful discussions about our future.
Through interviews with key activists and unique footage recorded over the 18 months of the campaign, Tunnel Vision gives insight as to why the community was so opposed to this project and how they won the campaign.
All over Australia and the world, community groups are fighting similar projects that threaten the equity, progress and sustainability of our cities and cultures.
Tunnel Vision - the extraordinary story of a community that stood up, found its voice and made history.
Stand up. Be heard. Make History.
