Oppressive industry linked to racial and environmental injustice is a story as old as time, so how do we fight against it? Watch one man’s story to fight for his community, even as it is all but completely destroyed. This award-winning film shows how petrochemical industries contaminate the land of a thriving centuries-old black community, and the extraordinary resilience to save an ancestral home. This film is featuring at Environmental Film Festival Australia and is followed by a panel with environmental health and legal experts. See MOSSVILLE: WHEN GREAT TREES FALL screening at cinema nova, 5.15pm Saturday.

Still planning your day? Inspiring words from Bill McKibben might help. Strike because young people have asked us to. In a well-ordered society, when kids make a reasonable request their elders should say yes – in this case with real pride and hope that the next generations are standing up for what matters. Strike because sun and wind are now the cheapest way to generate power around the world – if we could match the political power of the fossil fuel industry we could make fast progress. Strike because every generation faces some great crisis, and this is ours. Strike because the people who did the least to cause this crisis suffer first and worst – the people losing their farms to desert and watching their islands sink beneath the waves aren’t the ones who burned the coal and gas and oil. Strike because coral reefs are so gloriously beautiful and complex – and so vulnerable. Strike because science is real, because physics exists, because chemistry matters. Strike because our governments move with such painful slowness, treating climate change as, at worst, one problem on a long list. Strike because this could be the great opportunity – and maybe the last opportunity – to transform our society towards justice and towards joy. Green New Deals have been proposed around the world; they are a way forward. Strike because forests now seem like fires waiting to happen. Strike because Exxon and the rest knew all about global warming in the 1980s, and then lied so they could keep cashing in. Strike because what we do this decade will matter for hundreds of thousands of years. Strike because the temperature has hit 129F (54C) in big cities in recent summers. The human body can survive that, but only for a few hours. Strike because do we want to be the first generation to leave the planet in worse shape? Strike because batteries are ever cheaper – we can now store sunshine at night, and wind for a calm day. Strike because the UN estimates unchecked climate change could create a billion refugees this century. Strike because the big banks continue to lend hundreds of billions to the fossil fuel industry – people are literally trying to get rich off the destruction of the planet. Strike because what animal fouls its own nest? Strike because indigenous people around the world are trying to protect their rightful land from the coal and oil companies – and in the process protect all of us. Strike because every time they cut down a patch of rainforest to grow some more cows, the climate maths gets harder. Strike so you can look your grandkid – or anyone else’s – in the eye. Strike because the world we were given is still so sweet. #Climatestrike #schoolstrikeforclimate #SS4c Thanks Future Crunch
