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 rabble.ca 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, while striving to make it sustainable as well. 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 main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
