Film Night
Thursday, July 10, 7 p.m.
The Green Store/O.B. Green Center
This month's film is the 2012 documentary "Surviving Progress", which asserts that the world has financed an unsustainable growth rate by essentially encouraging whole nations to take out unpayable mortgages on their own futures. Brazil is given as an example. Enormous loans are given to the nation, which cannot meet the payments, and is then encouraged to liquefy its own natural assets — the rainforests. When the assets are gone, the wealth will have been taken out in the same process, and corporations will leave behind a drained nation and move on to another loan customer. Jane Goodall, Stephen Hawking and Margaret Atwood are featured in the film. The Green Store is located at 4843 Voltaire St. For more information call (619) 225-1083. Free of charge.
