Radical Film Night

January 24, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

We (The Campbell Club) have been hosting a bi-weekly showing of historical and politically charged documentaries to educate the community about important issues and bring activists together for a few hours. This week it’s The Coconut Revolution(2001). Film starts at 7:45, feel free to drop by and come join us at any point. I will do my best to have vegan popcorn and some refreshments out.
Also feel free to come by and plug your local activist group, and bring handbills/propaganda with you to share, folks are also welcome to hang around and network with one another before or after the film

Description: This film tells the story of the successful uprising of the indigenous peoples of Bougainville Island against the Papua New Guinea army and the mining plans of the mining corporation Rio Tinto Zinc (RTZ) to exploit their natural resources. The documentary reveals how the Bougainville Revolutionary Army (BRA) managed to overcome the marine blockade strategy used by the Papuan army by using coconut oil as fuel for their vehicles
