Location: West Seattle, WA (click for map)
An evening on the power of non-violent direct action—past and present.
We’ll show two inspiring episodes from A Force More Powerful (a series on successful nonviolent resistance movements). They are about the movement Gandhi led in India in the 1930s, and the Nashville sit-ins of the U.S. Civil Rights Movement.
Then Liz Spoerri, a West Seattleite and a member of the Delta 5 http://www.commondreams.org/news/2016/01/15/no-jail-time-delta-5-historic-case-welcomes-jurors-climate-movement, will share how she and four others blocked an oil train in Everett and went to trial, where they argued a historic case.
 
Liz will also bring information about Break Free from Fossil Fuels http://breakfree2016.org, a global mobilization coming up in May, with important events here in the Pacific Northwest.
