Oct 15, Documentary Screening: The Take

This Saturday, October 15, 1:00PM, we're watching The Take, a documentary by Naomi Klein and Avi Lewis. That will be followed by group discussion.

"In the wake of Argentina's dramatic collapse in 2001, Latin America's most prosperous middle class finds itself in a ghost town of abandoned factories and mass unemployment.

"In suburban Buenos Aires, thirty unemployed auto-parts workers walk into their idle factory, roll out sleeping mats and refuse to leave. All they want is to re-start the silent machines. But this simple act - the take - has the power to turn the globalization debate on its head.

"Director producer Avi Lewis and writer/producer and renowned author Naomi Klein take viewers inside the lives of ordinary visionaries, as they reclaim their work, their dignity and their democracy."

Oct 8th Meet - New Members

Because some of our members have been lost to busyness/moving, we're looking to gain some new ones. We're promoting our next meet (Sat. Oct 8th) at the Kensington Second Cup. Hopefully we'll have a good turnout and see some new faces.

I've made two different fliers/posters to spread the word- feel free to print & photocopy them, or make your own. I think they'll look okay after photocopying, I used easily read font and greyscale images. Sorry about the huge file sizes, make sure that you set your printer so it fits on the page.
