Film Showing in Florence Oregon - Invisible Hand


Invisible Hand

When: Tuesday, Sept. 17th
Where: City Lights Cinema
Florence, Oregon

Check back often as the event gets closer for more details.

In the fall of 2014, for the first time in United States history, an ecosystem filed to defend itself in a lawsuit claiming its ‘right to exist’ in Grant Township, Pennsylvania. For attempting such a radical act, Grant’s rural community of 700 people were sued by a corporation, then by the state government, and are now locked in a battle to defend the watershed they call home, the water they drink, and enforce the local laws they enacted that gave legal Rights to Nature.Film Showing in Florence Oregon - Invisible Hand

Half a continent away in Standing Rock, North Dakota, the same industry threatening Grant Twp. is using militarized force against indigenous tribes and allies fighting to protect Mother Earth. The two, Grant Township and Standing Rock, are joined in an international fight to protect more than just water. They fight for their community, democracy, and for Nature as a living entity unto itself.

Produced by award-winning actor Mark Ruffalo, INVISIBLE HAND takes you behind the curtain of the global economy where ‘Rights of Nature’ becomes “capitalism’s one true opponent.”

Community Rights in Salem – You Can Help!

We Have Two Bills Being Introduced

Staff and supporters have been working in Salem to get Community Rights Bills introduced this legislative session. We currently have two bills in play: one in the Senate, one in the House. The next step will be getting committee assignments! We’ll keep you informed on our website and Facebook. So stay tuned for more ways to help move these bills forward.

Here’s how you can help….

Now, and especially once the bill is assigned a number and to a committee, talk with your legislators. Let them know why you support the bill and why you’d like their support (and/or sponsorship) on it.

Current sponsors: Senator Monnes Anderson, Dembrow, Representative Noble, Power, Wilde
