Occupy Denver’s Environmental Defense Committee is hosting a series of teach-ins, film screenings, and events, all of which you are personally invited to attend. If you are getting this it is because I thought you or those you know might be interested; please forward this information to people you think may be interested. I know some of you personally, some through email threads, so if this comes to you as spam please reply “spam” and I’ll take you off this list.
First off, our next teach in for the Environmental Defense committee will be led by American Indian scholar Tink Tinker, entitled “American Indians: The Other 1%.” In the words of renowned American Indian scholar Tink Tinker: “I hope to discuss the contemporary economic repercussions of american colonial / corporate power on Indian communities across the continent. Thus, I will highlight the intense poverty of Indian communities in spite of resource rich lands that should make us the wealthiest Americans. Instead, we have an unemployment rate that is stuck at about 50%. But it’s recession proof….” This teach-in will be held at the Deer Pile space at 5:30 on Tuesday, May 15th, and should be a very insightful discussion. More details on this and other upcoming teach-ins here: http://occupydenver.org/committees/occupy-and-educate-denver/teach-in-schedule/
Secondly, the film Sweet Crude will be shown on Wednesday, May 16th at 6PM at the Gypsy House Cafe, followed by an open discussion. (See attached flyer for more details.) This will be the first in a series of film screenings on issues related to environmental justice. These screenings are free events.
