February 2014 General Meeting: A Fierce Green Fire

At our February 2014 General Meeting we will screen the new documentary film, "A Fierce Green Fire."

Spanning 50 years of grassroots and global activism, this Sundance documentary brings to light the vital stories of the environmental movement where people fought - and succeeded - against enormous odds. From halting dams in the Grand Canyon to fighting toxic waste at Love Canal; from Greenpeace to Chico Mendes; from climate change to the promise of transforming our civilization, A Fierce Green Fire is "nothing less than the history of environmentalism itself" (Los Angeles Times). From the Academy Award-nominated director of Berkeley in the Sixties, and narrated by Robert Redford, Meryl Streep, Ashley Judd, Van Jones and Isabel Allende. Featuring Lois Gibbs, Paul Watson, Bill McKibben, Paul Hawken, Carl Pope, John Adams, Bob Bullard, Amory Lovins, Barbara Bramble, Jennifer Morgan and more.

Screening followed by Q&A with the Director Mark Kitchell.

Doors open 6:30 pm, meeting at 7:00.

The film runs about 101 minutes. Drinks and popcorn will be provided.
