Benefit for Climate Ground Zero the Movie

9 Oct 2013

What: A benefit to raise awareness and money for a film about stopping Mountain Top Removal. This movie follows Mike Roselle, co-founder of Earth First, Climate Ground Zero and direct action campaigner for 40 years. We follow Mike from Vermont, where “Smokey” , the original Ancient Forest Rescue bus has been living in a cow pasture. “Smokey” weaves its way through NY, DC, WV, Va. and NC to raise awareness and protest Mountain Top Removal issues. Interviews with activists, demonstrations, other benefits and round table discussions are highlights of the film. We will be filming at this event.
Mike Roselle will speak {and perform songs with Joel!} throughout the evening. Music is being provided by Joel Meeks , troubadour extraordinaire, and “Franklin’s Kite”, an eclectic and rocking band from Asheville! We will be showing a shortened version of the new movie by Daryl Cherney “Who bombed Judi Bari”.

When: 7 pm -11 pm on Wednesday, October 9th

Where: The Grey Eagle, 185 Clingman Ave. , Asheville NC,28801

A suggested donation of 10-15$ gets you a bumper sticker and a copy of “Dragline” , the award winning photo journalism piece about our direct action efforts in WV .
