#FloodtheSystem is a callout this fall to flood, blockade, occupy, and shut down the systems that jeopardize our future. Initiated by Rising Tide North America, #FloodtheSystem is creating opportunities for massive economic and political interventions, long-term coalition and relationship formation, and expansion of popular power along the intersections of race, class, gender, and ability.  Learn about Flood the System through links to a graphic narrative presentation and other informative material at the Flood the System website.

Merchants of Doubt

Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre, 508 South Main Street, Moscow, Idaho

Presented by the Palouse Environmental Sustainability Coalition, the Unitarian Universalist Church of the Palouse Green Sanctuary Committee, and the Palouse Citizens Climate Lobby (CCL), this award-winning documentary demonstrates how corporate-hired pundits, posing as scientific authorities, spin the truth and confuse the public about well-studied, industry-produced threats such as toxic chemicals, pharmaceuticals, tobacco, fossil fuels, and climate change. Admission accepting donations toward the free, public screening of the movie, produced by filmmaker Robert Kenner and inspired by the acclaimed book by Naomi Oreskes and Erik Conway, starts at 6:30 pm. A concluding panel discussion will feature UI professors Tom Bitterwolf and Kenton Bird and CCL representative Mary Dupree.
