DEREK WALL AT LONDON SOCIALIST FILM COOP, 8TH MAY
Great to be back at the London Socialist Film Coop, catch me next sunday, companeros!
TIME TO TACKLE CLIMATE CHANGE
Alexandra Posada and Andre Camargo
global release 2009 [E], DVD, 21 mins
Made for Sustain Labour and the
International Trade Union Confederation,
the video was first launched at the COP 15
Climate Change Convention in Copenhagen
and showcases trade unions’ concrete
experiences, challenges, opportunities and
commitments for action on climate change.
It features contributions from over 45 trade
union organisations from all over the world.
The environment, employment, social
justice and a just transition are all part of
the same fight.
THE YES MEN FIX THE WORLD
Andy Birchlbaum and Mike Bonanno
France/UK/US 2009 [12A], DVD, 87 mins
Following the popular success of their
previous film, The Yes Men ( 2003), the two
gonzo political activists return to squeeze
raucous comedy out of all the ways that
corporate greed is destroying the planet.
Posing as top executives of giant corporations
they lie their way into big business
conferences and pull off the world's most
outrageous pranks. The Yes Men operate
under the mission statement of telling the
truth and exposing lies.
Discussion led by Eric Gordon, Editor of the Camden New Journal,
Derek Wall of the Green
Party and author of The No Nonsense Guide to Green Politics(New Internationalist 2010),
and Philip Pearson, senior policy officer at the TUC, leading on energy and climate change
