"Thirst" Film Screening and Potluck Event Sept. 13 - Come One and All!

Please RSVP to Wendee Crofoot at: 650-390-8411, or loma.prieta.chapter@sierraclub.org

The Sierra Club, Loma Prieta Chapter is sponsoring a free film event! The event is a potluck and screening, featuring the engaging and inspiring documentary “Thirst.” Join us for this exciting opportunity to eat and socialize with other interested activists, as well as learn about the struggle over the privatization of one of our most basic public resources: water.

“Thirst” is a groundbreaking new one hour documentary that tells the story of communities stretching from Stockton, CA, to Cochabamba, Bolivia, to Rajasthan, India which are resisting privatization of their water in order to preserve water as a public trust.

Produced by independent filmmakers Alan Snitow and Deborah Kaufman, “Thirst” features Sierra Club member Dale Stocking speaking out and walking the talk in Stockton. It also shows activists from around the globe confronting the corporate water privatizers in Kyoto, Japan at the Third World Water Forum.

Tuesday, September 13, 2005, from 6-9 PM: San José Library, Vineland Branch, at 1450 Blossom Hill Rd., San José, CA 95118. For map and directions, please visit: http://www.sjlibrary.org/about/locations/vineland/directions.htm
