The Bush administration's agricultural technology summit in Sacramento June 23-25 will push "free trade" and corporate agribusiness technologies on government ministers from 180 different nations, but the public is not invited. Come learn what's at stake and how activist groups are planning a five-day festival of resistance. Tonight's program features a screening of Fed Up! (58 min., 2002), a compelling film documentary that depicts the struggle of small farmers against the industrial agribusiness juggernaut. Leading activist Skip Spitzer of the Pesticide Action Network and local filmmaker Angelo Sacerdote will be present to discuss the world food system big picture, what's happening in Sacramento, and the implications for those who care about food, social justice and the environment. 7PM, First Unitarian Universalist Society of San Francisco. 1187 Franklin St (at Geary). Doors open at 6:30PM. Suggested donation: $5. Organized by the SF Unitarian Universalist Society in co-operation with the members of the Sacramento mobilization coalition.
