Tomorrow! "Gasland" Screening, Discussion, and Ritual in Cornwall, NY
Friday, June 6, 2014
Brid's Closet: 296 Main Street, Cornwall, NY 12518
This is something that should be on the minds of Pagans everywhere. We will be screening the film with a discussion afterwards.
Courtney Weber-HPS of The novices of The Old Ways Coven will be coming
up from NYC to discuss this film along with members of Pagan Environmental Coalition--NYC.
People...this is a wake-up call!
Have you ever seen
someone light their water faucet on fire? Have you heard of human-made
earthquakes? Or whole communities evacuated because their houses might
explode? Hydraulic Fracturing (aka "Fracking") is a natural-gas
extraction method, the effects of which have decimated water sources,
homes, and health around the country. Fracking companies continue to put
pressure on New York State to allow the practice, putting our homes and
water at risk. We will be screening the documentary GASLAND by Josh
Fox, the film exposing the dangers of this practice and its threat to
New York State.
Join us for a wake-up call, followed by a
discussion on how Witches can manifest an ecologically and economically
sustainable state. (Yes! We can be both!) Hear about a Pagan-backed initiative for wind-power in the state of NY--an economical, ecologically-sustainable alternative to natural gas infrastructure, which could eventually include fracking.
$5 (or anything you can
give-no one will be turned away) will be donated to the Pagan
Environmental Coalition of NYC
