There will be a FREE screening of the Do the Math film at the UPP on Cowley Road at 9pm on Tuesday 24th September to which everyone is welcome.
The film, made by 350.org, is a compelling, fast-paced 42 minute documentary about the grassroots movement that is emerging to fight climate change and the fossil fuel industry. It is upbeat and inspiring, proposing powerful solutions and urging ordinary people towards organised action in the epic struggle of this century.
The screening will be followed by a discussion about ways to take action against climate change with invited speakers from exciting Oxford-based campaigns and groups including the UK Tar Sands Network, Global Power Shift and Climate Outreach and Information Network. I will be launching a campaign to persuade the local authority to pull investments out of fossil fuels (working along the lines of the divestment campaign that helped dismantle the apartheid regime in South Africa). I hope people will feel inspired to sign up to groups and join campaigns.
There is a facebook event here for those of you who enjoy that kind of thing: https://www.facebook.com/
The screening is organised by Al Chisholm and sponsored by the handmade cosmetics shop LUSH
