Sierra Club presents: Blue Gold a film screening fundraiser

On Tuesday, July 20th, the Atlantic Chapter of Sierra Club Canada will be hosting a film screening fundraiser to support its upcoming conference on water conservation. The conference, part of a national campaign, provides grassroots groups, community leaders and municipal staff with tools and resources to achieve sustainable water conservation practices. To cover the costs of the conference, the Atlantic Chapter will be showing Blue Gold: World Water Wars.

Blue Gold :World Water Wars is based on a book by Maude Barlow and Tony Clark. It sheds light on the world's rapidly approaching water crisis and suggests that wars of the future will be fought over water, as they today over oil, as the source of all life enters the global marketplace and political arena. As we pollute and waste away our very limited supply, corporate giants are working to make the building block of our globe a commodity, privatizing developing countries' fresh water. In the midst of this, military control of water is rising, setting the stage for world water wars.

Thank you for reading this story...

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.

If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.

We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing.
