PDSMM Presents Gasland II, Oct. 5
October 3, 2013 - By Dorothy Reik, President, PDSMM
The Progressive Democrats of the Santa Monica Mountains (PDSMM) will present a free showing of Gasland II, Josh Fox's sequel to his ground-breaking first film, Gasland The Movie, on Oct. 5 at the Community House.
While Gasland The Movie first alerted the public to the dangers of fracking, Gasland II follows the victims from the first film as they seek justice in a flawed system. Following the film, there will be a panel discussion of the next steps to ban fracking in California. Already the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy is trying to allow oil drilling in the Whittier Hills.
If they can give up the Whittier Hills parkland to big oil, who says they can't give up Topanga's parkland too.
Panelists will include Lance Simmens of Public Citizen, who lived through fracking in Pennsylvania, and RL Miller, Chair of the Environmental Caucus of the California Democratic Party, environmental activist and blogger.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the film starts at 7 p.m. Fracking can come to Topanga if we don't do something to stop it!
