The Real Agenda of Global Environmental Activists
Mine Your Own Business is a one-hour feature documentary. It is an entertaining and informative exposé on how the environmental movement is ignoring the world's poor and their dire need for development. The film features interviews with some of the world's poorest people and reflects on their individual goals for a better life. It is the first documentary to ask hard questions of the environmental movement and the right of all people to live prosperous and productive lives. Even if you think you understand the importance of economic development, this film will provide insight into the desperate state of the world's poor--as no book or study can--and why we cannot deny them the dignity of development and economic achievement. (Read a review of the movie. Watch the preview.)
Each showing will be followed with a short presentation by Paul Driessen, author of the book Eco-Imperialism. Driessen will localize the movies message and answer questions from the audience.
Each event will be held in a "happy hour" type timeframe with refreshments (Beer and wine will be available at the Albuquerque and Roswell locations)from 4:30-5:30, showings at 5:30 and Paul Driessen's presentations at 6:30. These events are open to the public free-of-charge and you are encouraged to bring everyone you know! (Event sponsorships are still available.)
