RECLAIM POWER DVD 62 minutes
voices from the Camp for Climate Action 2006
Climate change is now a reality. Leading scientists across the world agree that in a 'business as usual scenario' we have no longer than 10 years to prevent 2-3 degrees of additional global warming that will lead to irreversible climatic changes with dramatic consequences for our planet.
However, in a world driven by profit and committed to unlimited economic growth, humanity seems very unwilling to change the course of the fossil fuel economy.
In the summer of 2006, the 5th hottest year ever recorded in recent history, 600 people convinced that there is no time to waste set up a Camp for Climate Action in the shadow of one of the biggest C02 emitters in Europe: Drax coal-fired power station in Yorkshire / UK.
With over one hundred workshops on a wide range of topics, the 10 day camp was a space of collective learning, sustainable living and taking direct action on the root causes of climate change. The gathering that showed practical low energy solutions in action, culminated in a day of protest and mass direct action in an attempt to shut down Drax.
There will also be information and a short announcement regarding the Convergence For Climate Action happening near the mouth of the Columbia River this August.
After RECLAIM POWER we will also be showing:
28 SECONDS: The Killing of Fouad Kaady
You've heard the lies. Now come and learn the truth.
For 18 months, the police and the corporate media have claimed that the killing of Fouad Kaady was justified. They said he was on drugs. They said they feared for their lives. They said he threatened to kill them. They said officers "never violated policies or procedures."
We beg to differ.
Believe it or not, this story is told in the officers' own words. And you won't even believe what you hear.
