This will be the second and final showing of this documentary.

There are exciting developments in the political map of our country. The Occupy movement continues to grow, and many of us are wondering how will this process evolve.

In Argentina, “Occupy” developed as a grass-root movement of workers taking over bankrupted factories and trying to figure out how to make them productive again. The movement succeeded in saving and creating thousands of jobs but, most importantly, it brought communities together.

Naomi Klein, Avi Lewis and folks at the National Film Board of Canada documented some of these stories in a film called “The Take”

Other details
The film lasts 87 minutes, and will be followed by conversation. You can watch the video online BUT, even better: come watch it with us!

This gathering is not intended to promote a pre-set view of occupation, but rather to bring us together and engage us in insightful dialogue. All views are welcome.

Hope you can make it.
