  Showing Thursday, Oct 21st, in Cambridge:

*Banned by Shell Oil*
Blind Spot *challenges fundamental assumptions -- in particular, the 
unquestioned assumption that growth is good, that "expansion is 
tantamount to progress."

Peak oil; climate change; population overshoot ... the problems are 
getting worse, and have potentially catastrophic consequences for the 
entire human species.

"/Blind Spot is a fascinating documentary, it draws on some of the most 
impressive scientific minds to warn us about the dangers of our 
dependence on oil and educate us about our role in saving the earth and 
the lives of our children. I was transfixed by it./"  ~Howard Zinn

"/The next few decades aren't going to look like the last few - not at 
all. And the sooner we come to terms with that, the better. This 
documentary is a good place to start./" ~ -Bill McKibben, author of 
/'The End of Nature'/

"/The world is saying look you have a choice, you can either fix it or I 
can fix it, and if I fix it you are not going to like it because I'm 
going to throw everything away. And everything means most of us./" 
-Derrick Jensen, author of 'ENDGAME'

(DVDs will be available for purchase)

Why should YOU care? It's YOUR money that pays for US/Israeli wars - on 
Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, Palestine, So America, etc etc - for 
billionaire bailouts, for ever more ubiquitous US prisons, for the loss 
of liberty and civil rights...

/"When they come for the innocent without crossing over your body, 
cursed be your religion and your life/." ~Brendan Walsh, a planner for 
the Catonsville-Nine 

"/The man who views the world at 50 the same as he did at 20 has wasted 
30 years of his life./" ~Muhammad Ali (also see Robert Louis Stevenson)

"/If God does exist, I don't think he's vengeful; I just think he's an 
underachiever./" ~Woody Allen
