Camcorder Guerillas brings you REEL NEWS with a special screening:
COPENHAGEN: SYSTEM CHANGE, NOT CLIMATE CHANGE
In December 2009, the governments of the United Nations met in Copenhagen to discuss the threat of climate change and the need for drastic reductions in carbon emissions. They agreed to do nothing…
However the untold story of that meeting was that it was confronted on the streets of Copenhagen by mass mobilisations of activists from grassroots struggles from across the world demanding alternatives to the current system of economic and environmental crisis.
In December 2009, Copenhagen witnessed the birth of a global movement for climate justice.
Here is a chance to see and discuss the inspiring mobilizations that occurred in Copenhagen in a series of short films by London based video activist collective Reel News, including interviews with Naomi Klein (No Logo, The Shock doctrine), Vandana Shiva (world-renowned environmentalist & seed activist), and the Via Campesina farmer’s movement.
Screening followed by a discussion with Sean from Reel News, Pablo Routledge from Camcorder Guerillas and other local activists.
