Devils Dust Movie Trailer – The Killer James Hardie Asbestos Company & Bernie Banton

Devil’s Dust is a two-part Australian television docu-drama mini-series on the ABC which first screened in 2012. Based on journalist Matt Peacock’s 2009 book Killer Company, Devil’s Dust was researched and developed by producer Stephen Corvini for over two years prior to the series’ production. Through the factual case of Bernie Banton, it recounts the tragedy of many Australian workers and their families afflicted with asbestosis and mesothelioma in the twentieth-century asbestos mining and processing industries. Though the extreme health risks of exposure to asbestos dust had been documented for many years, manufacturer James Hardie persisted in large-scale use of the material, aided by inadequate regulation by state health agencies.

BEFORE he died an early death at 61 in 2007, Australia knew Bernie Banton as the smiling man with asbestosis who carried an oxygen bottle wherever he went.

We didn’t know all that much about him at first, just that he was up against the polished legal might and political clout of building materials manufacturer James Hardie. I still remember the company’s name stamped on sheets of “fibro” in the local hardware yard. I had no idea the lives of thousands of Australians might have been jeopardised by asbestos in materials such as this. Or that underfelt made from shredded asbestos bags under old carpet leaked pain.

Banton seemed an ordinary bloke, a former factory worker, who soon became the widely recognised face of the legal and political campaign to achieve compensation for the many sufferers of asbestos-related diseases. But, as this two-part series reveals, there was more to Banton than many of us realised as we watched the emerging folk hero on TV waging his seemingly losing battle against the corporate figureheads of the James Hardie company.

Bernard Douglas (Bernie) Banton AM (13 October 1946 – 27 November 2007) was an Australian social justice campaigner. He was the widely-recognised face of the legal and political campaign to achieve compensation for the many sufferers of asbestos-related conditions, which they contracted after either working for the company James Hardie or being exposed to James Hardie Industries’ products.

Bernie himself suffered from asbestosis, Asbestos-Related Pleural Disease (ARPD) and then finally peritoneal mesothelioma. These conditions required him to carry an oxygen tank wherever he went. The 2009 book Killer Company details Banton’s fight against James Hardie.

The Environmentally Corrupt Shire of Dumbleyung and their Deadly & Dangerous Practices

The Environmentally Corrupt Shire of Dumbleyung and their Deadly & Dangerous Practices

A couple weeks ago the East German Era Loving Freemason Controlled Shire of Dumbleyung, buried 1000 litres to 5000 litres of toxic oil, pesticides, brake fluids, and other deadly oils only 100 metres away from this extremely threatened Frog Habitat, containing approximately 7 different species of Frogs, The Banjo Frog, The Motorbike Frog, The Shoemaker Frog, The Western Toadlet, and The Moaning Frog and the extremely rare and environmentally threatened The Western Spotted Frog. and others no doubt… not to mention wildlife, such as Migrating Birds, Herons, Spoonbills, Thorn-bills, Eagles, Owls, Hawks, Ducks, Falcons, Snakes and reptiles that feed of these frogs… remember, what these predators eats goes into the foodchain… one big cycle of environmental poisoning which eventually reaches the Human Foodchain!

The Oil was specifically placed at an Oil Recycling Depot only 100 metres away from this Frog Habitat… all of this oil was supposed to have been recycled into Bio Diesel… but the Shire of Dumbleyung thought it would be a better idea to Bury it and thus contaminate the town of Dumbleyung’s Ground Water, the towns Drinking Supply and also nearby Livestock Dams.

Te Shire Of Dumbleyung’s Official Motto “see no evil hear no evil speak no evil” and their most favourite saying I’ve heard, “out of sight, out of mind… fuck the residents! As long as we get our big Christmas Bonuses at the end of the year… She’ll be right mate!

Future Updates on this are coming with Footage of the Shire of Dumbleyung Burying the Oil.
