Climate Change is on the agenda. Everyone and their mum claims to care about the Earth. Politicians of every stripe are doing their best to come across as eco-warriors.
But is the battle for the planet won?
Can a business-as-usual model of big government and big
corporations solve the environmental crisis? What role do protests and campaigns play? Are they ever successful? How is the struggle to reclaim democracy related to the battle for the future?
This film night takes a look at three different campaigns
(the 90’s anti-roads movement, Camps for Climate Action, and Saving Iceland). Each film will be accompanied by an
activist who is either involved, or took part at the time.
These activists will speak about their experiences and how well the film captures them, and be available to
Reclaim Power (15 mins)
Saving Iceland Documentary (9 mins)
Wild Horses of Newbury (10 mins)
