One Earth Film Fest is in its 8th year, with 67 screenings in over four counties, March 1-10. Check oneearthfilmfest.org to see a synopsis of films by locations, dates and themes. Ticket purchase is recommended.

Roundup Facing Its Judges will be screened at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 5 at the Main Library in Oak Park.

I particularly recommend this film because it fits with GoGreen Oak Park’s mission of raising awareness of pesticide toxicity. And most importantly, it gives a global understanding of the devastation of what Roundup is doing to the world’s soil, air, water, food supply and people. Eighteen months ago 30 countries came to The Hague and related their stories of Roundup’s devastation before five judges. The word ecocide was applied.

Our special guest is Commissioner Frank Avila of Chicago’s Metropolitan Water Reclamation Department. He will have just returned from India where he held a conference on water reclamation policy. He has been a concerned opponent of toxins for many years.

As always, there will be an energetic dialogue between our guest and the audience. And, of course, different organizations will be there to share action opportunities.

Many thanks and please pass this on to others.
