Film Screenings

The free screening of 'The Island President' was well attended by people who went to the Climate Caravan event. We received £62.22 in donations and for drinks. Alternative venues and funding are to be investigated for next year’s Green Film Festival and also holding stalls to publicise the event.

Maureen went to the screening of ‘97% Owned’ and found the most interesting statistic was that it would take £2 trillion to green the economy.  This seems a lot but £14 trillion was found in a year to bail out the banks.  We need the government to control the creation of money.  At the moment it is only responsible for 3% of all money in the economy, the rest is commercial bank money.
