Wild Idaho Rising Tide (WIRT) is hosting a public screening of the British climate activism film Just Do It: A Tale of Modern-Day Outlaws at 7 pm on Thursday evening, March 21, at The Attic, up the back stairs of 314 East Second Street in Moscow. Emily James’s documentary follows daring climate action troublemakers over a year, as they blockade and confront factories, coal power stations, and international banks, despite threats of arrest. Because WIRT paid $50 for the film, promotional materials, and screening rights, we are asking for voluntary admission donations for this show.
After the movie at about 8:30 pm, WIRT activists will hold their third Thursday monthly meeting to discuss the growing climate justice movement and brainstorm and plan upcoming tar sands, megaload, fracking, and coal export protests and the Second Annual Celebration of WIRT. On the Moscow, Idaho, frontlines of radical rejection of extreme energy, climate activism requires ongoing vigilance of industry and government actions and involvement in collective, local efforts to confront the political corruption and pervasive pollution of state and federally facilitated fossil fuel energy development. We welcome all concerned activists at this discussion of direct action strategies, tactics, and legal rights after the film screening.
