We are calling on the community to attend a documentary screening to get inspiration moving forward with regards to the fight against the existential threat of runaway climate change posed by the fossil fuel industry. After the screening we will focus on the issue of earthquake inducing gas extraction in Groningen and the actions organised by Coalitie Gasverzet Groningen that are planned for Saturday 24th of September.

PickAxe (1999, 94 min) screening:

An eclectic mix of activists take a stand to protect an old growth forest from logging at Warner Creek in the Willamette National Forest of Oregon (USA), blockading the logging road and repelling the State Police. Over months a community builds around the illegal blockade as it develops into the Cascadia Free State and similar actions spread across the region. Years after its release, Pickaxe has become a classic document of the potential for grassroots direct action to achieve victory against the forces of both government and big business. Lovingly crafted by the participants themselves, the film expertly presents every moment, from confrontation to celebration.
