"The Bottom Line: Privatizing the World" is a multi-layered investigation into the erosion of the global commons within the context of increasing privatization and expanding patent rights. People from Canada, the United States, Mexico, France, Brazil and India share stories of the commodification of water, seeds, genes, healthcare, knowledge -- and what citizens around the world are doing to oppose this trend. "The Bottom Line" presents a revealing snapshot of a global community at a crossroads.
The film will be followed by an open discussion led by Jesse Swanhuyser, Director of the California Coalition for Fair Trade and Human Rights.
$5 - $10 suggested donation; sponsored by World Centric, Peninsula Peace and Justice Center, and Peace Umbrella of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Palo Alto.
