Progressive Cinema presents Disruption 18th November 7:30pm at the Armidale Club

542af0c2685f5Progressive Cinema presents DISRUPTION on Tuesday, 18th November, at 7:30pm, at the Armidale Club.

‘When it comes to climate change, why do we do so little when we know so much?’
Through a relentless investigation to find the answer, “Disruption” takes an unflinching look at the devastating consequences of our inaction.
“Disruption” is about the greatest challenge mankind has ever faced and the movement rising to meet it. The film presents commentary from some of the foremost voices analysing climate change, politics and society today, with behind-the-scenes footage on the efforts to organise the recent People’s Climate March in New York.
James Hansen, Bill McKibben, Naomi Klein, Rajendra Pachauri are among those featured. It presses home the urgency of the present by laying bare the scientific background for the tipping points we are threatening to trigger, the failure of our political process and the need for a popular movement to change course.
The story is of our unique moment in history. We are living in an age of tripping tipping points and rapid social and planetary change. We’re the first generation to feel the impacts of climate disruption, and the last generation that can do something about it. The film’s analysis extends beyond climate impacts and it makes a compelling call for bold action towards a sustainable and just future.
“On 21st September around 300 people joined the global action in Armidale, marches were held in many cities across Australia and local resident Patsy Asch joined the main event, the People’s Climate March in New York,” said Bea Bleile, Socialist Alliance New England Convener and one of the organisers of the screening.
“The global action on 21st September, and, in particular, Adam Blakester’s call for fundamental change at the rally in Armidale, made it easier to remain hopeful that collective action will make a difference.
“After the film Patsy Asch, who was at the march in New York, will lead a discussion on our local contribution to the global movement. I am looking forward to hearing her account of the march in New York.”
