OccupyNL invites the general public to attend a film screening of Gasland this Tuesday, March 27th, at 8 PM at MUN (Science Building room 4068). Local journalist Justin Brake will lead a discussion following the screening and share what's he's found in researching the natural gas industry, including where we currently stand in terms of exploration and extraction on the island.
On Wednesday, March 28,  7:30 PM, the Harris Centre is hosting a public discussion on Natural Gas as a potential energy source in Newfoundland. We encourage everyone to attend this meeting with the information brought up during our workshop on natural gas extraction (specifically hydraulic fracturing, more commonly known as “fracking”).

99% Film Fest and Workshop Series

Protest Movements and Contentious Politics workshop with Dr. David Close

When: Tuesday, March 13th, 8:00 pm

Where: MUN Science Building, room 4068 – free parking in lot 15B

Join us on Tuesday, March 13th, for the latest in the 99% Film Fest and Workshop Series. This workshop, facilitated by Dr. David Close from the Political Science Department, focuses on protest movements and contentious politics. Contemporary examples, like the Spanish Indignados and the Occupy movement, will be discussed alongside earlier examples, such as the anarchist collectives after the Spanish Revolution, organized protest in the wake of the Great Depression, and the 60's counter-culture movements.

Along with a discussion of these and other examples, the workshop will be a chance to talk about common issues social movements face, such things as questions of organization and identity, questions of strategy and perception, questions about the future, and any other topics of interest to you. Professor Close writes about, and teaches courses on, protest movements and contentious politics, so it’s sure to be an informative workshop for local activist groups... See you there!

Fiat Currency workshop this Tuesday

REPOST (again):
Third time's the charm! Join OccupyNL this Tuesday February 21 at 8 PM for a workshop on fiat currency (rescheduled twice now, but we are persistent!). We will be meeting at MUN in the Science building, room SN4068. Free parking available in lot 15B (map).

Prof. Josh Lepawsky and Lori Heath, Coordinator of the LETS Barter Network and Executive Director of Common Ground, will facilitate a discussion on what money is, where it comes from and how it is created... and how communities can create their own money to provide for local needs.

Check out this short video for a 4-minute backgrounder:
