San Jose: Earth Day Movie Screening and Discussion. NOT WITHOUT US
EARTH DAY SATURDAY, APRIL 22, 2017 6:00-9:00 PM Tully Community Library
WHO WILL SOLVE THE CLIMATE CRISIS? In commemoration of Earth Day, join us as we present a film screening of the critically acclaimed documentary on climate justice, Not Without Us, directed by Pil-Am Mark Decena. After the screening, we'll have a short, small-group discussion on bold and creative ways to counter climate injustice, especially in this political environment. MOVIE DESCRIPTION
Not Without Us follows seven grassroots activists from around the world to the 21st U.N. Climate Talks in Paris. The documentary connects the dots between the inability of the U.N. process to address climate change and Big Oil’s control over governments and between a fossil fuel driven economy and the 1% who control it. Not Without Us demonstrates the importance of grassroots groups to empower mass movements to create the systemic change we need. Real change that comes not from top down, but the bottom up, organized by social movements to harness the greatest force we have: humanity. For questions, contact email@example.com.
