Film: "How to Change the World" - The Revolution will not be Organized +  

Okanagan Regional Library - 2800 30th Ave

Third in a series of one each Thursday in February, this is a short film viewing with discussion following. Free!

In 1971 a small group of activists set sail from Vancouver, Canada in an old fishing boat. Their mission was to stop Nixon’s atomic test bomb in Amchitka, Alaska. Chronicling this untold story at the birth of the modern environmental movement and with access to dramatic archive footage unseen for over 40 years, the film centres on eco-hero Robert Hunter and his part in the creation of the global organization we now know as Greenpeace.
