Tackling Peak Oil, Climate Change and Economic Breakdown
QFT is organising a special screening of Just Do It – A Tale of Modern-day Outlawson Sunday 24 July 2011 at 6.30pm.
Emily James spent over a year embedded in activist groups such as Climate Camp and Plane Stupid to document their clandestine activities. With unprecedented access, Just Do It takes you on an astonishing journey behind the scenes of a community of people who refuse to sit back and allow the destruction of their world.
Torpedoing the tired cliches of the environmental movement, Just Do It introduces you to a powerful cast of mischievous and inspiring characters who put their bodies in the way; they super-glue themselves to bank trading floors, blockade factories and attack coal power stations en-masse, despite the very real threat of arrest. Their adventures will entertain, illuminate and inspire.
This film promises to be a really exciting insight into the plight of environmental campaigning and protest in 21st century Britain, as it follows the fortunes of several connected environmental activist groups.
FOE Belfast will be taking part in a panel discussion after the screening, along with Eamonn McCann, and Dr Sue Christie of Northern Ireland Environment Link, where we will discuss the merits and challenges of different methods of campaigning and lobbying.
