Bloom Collective to host screening of Just Do It film on environmental direct action July 26
Record heat, lack of rain, new oil drilling in Alaska, fracking all across the country, species extinction, burning fossil fuels and contamination of the soil are reasons to feel a sense of urgency about the future of life on this planet.
These realities can feel overwhelming at times, but it is important to note that millions of people across the globe are fighting what is killing us. That is the theme of the powerful film, Just Do It. Just Do It takes us to England, where environmental activists are people their lives on the line through direct action to stop the machines of capital that are destroying the planet.
The Bloom will be screening the film “Just Do It: A Tale of Modern-Day Outlaws” at the DAAC with a potluck before and discussion after (and eating throughout).
