Just Do It
reBar Gastropub (147 Front St., Brooklyn)
Before Occupy Wall Street, a group of climate activists in the UK organized themselves and engaged in direct action campaigns using the same methods that OWS took on a few months later. Watch as cameras embedded within the group expose how their actions were executed and how they deal with a new approach from the UK’s police.
About Films For the Occupation:
Rooftop Films, in partnership with several of New York City’s finest film venues, will bring a series of four film programs to audiences from December 13-16. As the Occupy encampments are being dismantled across the country and as mainstream media and politics threaten to go on with business as usual, having conversations that question our economic and political system is all the more important. “Films for the Occupation” intends to showcase film and multimedia works that provoke or continue conversations that challenge old ways of thinking and encourage new ones. Curated by Rooftop Films and Bryce Renninger.
We are excited to announce a special activist Q&A to follow the screening of JUST DO IT, featuring Rob Jereski, a founding member of the New York Climate Action Group, Occupy Wall Street organizer Justin Wedes, and New York based climate justice activist Laura Sheinkopf.
