How to know about oil: Imre Szeman to give public lecture in St. John's

Imre Szeman is in St. John's on March 20th to give a talk titled "How to Know About Oil". Szeman's work discusses oil not only in terms of economics, but with regard to social, cultural, and political concerns. NL has, in recent decades, become something of a petroculture, yet questions about the ethics of oil have never been more pressing. Below is more information on the event (note that this is happening at MUN, just after INM Talking Circle).

Something to Consider: "Capitalism is the Crisis"

Because you surely shouldn't believe absolutely everything that you hear, see, or read, here is something for you to consider. It's a documentary that discusses capitalism, the 2008 financial crisis, and government responses to the crisis, which have tended to focus on cutbacks in spending (though this has been the direction of politics in Britain and North America since at least the 1970s).

Not only does it offer a critical look at capitalism, it also shares some methods of resistance. The filmmakers, for example, go to the Mondragon, which is a collectively-owned and operated political bookstore and vegan restaurant in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

If this piques your interest, you can watch the film below. For more information, click here.

It's free, and the creators ask that the film be distributed. So if you like it, spread the word.
