From Standing Rock to NL: Towards a better energy future

April 2, 2017

Sunday at 2 PM – 4 PM
As resistance to mega-energy is growing across the U.S. and Canada, many of us here in St. John’s want to support these efforts and work towards better solutions, but wonder where do we start? What can we do in the midst of our hectic-feeling lives?
This session is being held to help us get our hearts and minds around exactly that.
Join us for a screening of the documentary film “Pipe Dreams” (0:40, Iwerks Productions) and a look at the ongoing efforts at Standing Rock and in Labrador. A discussion will follow around tangible local actions that we can take.
Pay-what-you-can! All proceeds will go towards the legal funds for the protectors at Standing Rock and in Labrador (shared 50/50).
Big thanks to Iwerks Productions and Eastern Edge Art Gallery for their (in)kind support, and to the Council of Canadians – St. John’s and the Social Justice Co-op for their collaboration and mentorship.
