Fossil Free Greater Manchester: Film Screening
Tue 7 February 2017, 19:00 – 21:00 GMT
Join us for a free film screening of the acclaimed environmental documentary Do The Math.
The film, produced by climate campaigners 350.org, highlights the impact the growing fossil fuel divestment movement is having in tackling climate change.
Do The Math chronicles "America's leading environmentalist" Bill McKibben in a David-vs-Goliath battle to fight the fossil fuel industry and change the terrifying math of the climate crisis. Bill McKibben is going after Big Oil, Big Coal, and Big Gas directly - energizing a movement like the ones that overturned the great immoral institutions of the past century - such as Apartheid in South Africa.
Putting his body on the line to stop the Keystone XL Pipeline and leading universities and institutions to divest in the corporations destroying our livelihoods, McKibben is uniting the growing global majority that view the climate crisis as the most important moral issue of the day. You can view the trailer here- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-zfinOCgRQ0.
The film lasts 42 minutes and will be followed by a short discussion and Q&A with local fossil fuel divestment campaigners from Fossil Free Greater Manchester.
