Climate Change: Naomi Klein, Clayton Thomas-Muller, and SOL
By Jim Carey
Occupy San Miguel will see a video of two dynamic speakers from the September 2014 Bioneers conference in California: Naomi Klein and Clayton Thomas-Muller. Naomi Klein is the award-winning Canadian journalist, international activist, and best-selling author. She depicts climate change as more than an issue in her new book, This Changes Everything: Capitalism versus the Climate. It’s a wake-up call delivered in the language of fires, floods, storms, and droughts. It demands that we challenge the dominant economic policies of deregulated capitalism and endless resource extraction.
Occupy San Miguel Meeting
Climate Change: Naomi Klein, Clayton Thomas, Muller, and SOL
Mon, Feb 23, 1pm
Quinta Loreto Hotel
Loreto 15, TV room
Clayton Thomas-Muller is a leading organizer for Idle No More and Defenders of the Land, and a co-director of Polaris Institute’s Indigenous Tar Sands Campaign. He portrays Canada’s rising native-led, rights-based movement, supported by labor, civil society, students, and grassroots groups. It’s challenging the neo-liberal free market agenda that has turned Canada into a petro-state.
After the video, we will hear about a local initiative from members of SOL. Seed saving is a century-old art. As we have removed ourselves from the practice of producing food, seed saving becomes mysterious thanks to advertising by companies whose interest is to sell hybrid and genetically modified seed. In San Miguel de Allende, seed saving is alive and well. Come hear about the latest initiatives to establish more seed banks and seed libraries. Our discussions and films are free and open to all.
