September 15, 2017 at 7:00pm – We the People 2.0 (91 min, Leila Conners, 2016) – PLEASE NOTE: This movie will be shown on the 3rd Friday of the month.
We the People 2.0 is a documentary about local communities acting to regain control of the processes by which important health and environmental decisions affecting their communities are made. For example, a community in Ohio organized to resist the implementation of fracking in their community only to find that the energy company, by virtue of corporate personhood and the commerce clause, can dictate the fracking will proceed. It’s another startling lesson about who controls what in “democratic” America. The movie shows the Community Environmental Defense Fund organizing communities to create tools and resistance to corporate actions that disregard the wishes and well-being of local communities. Learn what communities around the country are doing and take heart from the presentation about wresting democracy back from those organizations that now seem to have the upper hand.
