This showing will be followed by a panel involving CELDF organizers and participants in Bellingham’s effort to adopt a local Community Bill of Rights in 2012. Attendees will also be invited to follow-up meetings for those wishing to move this work forward.

The documentary, presentedby Tree Media and the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF), tells the story of people across the U.S. who have faced decades of environmental assaults – such as oil trains, coal trains, pipelines, fracking, and sludging of farmland – and what they are doing about it.  These communities recognize that ecosystems at home and around the globe are collapsing under inherently unsustainable laws and governing structures – what many have called a ‘corporate state.’ They have come to understand that the system is stacked against them and the natural environment. The film shares how they are working with CELDF and organizing to stop these assaults in their own communities through rights-based laws, often successfully passed and enforced, which ban the harms as a violation of the rights both of the communities and their ecosystems.

 

Let’s protect what we love about this sacred place.
