Earth Day is this Sunday, April 22. In celebration of the planet we all live on, we’ve got a series of events coming up this week. It’s going to be a beautiful week, so come out and enjoy the sunshine while you spread the Occupy message. We hope to see you.
Friday April 20: “The Big Fix” movie premiere
In collaboration with Black Rock Solar, Occupy UNR is hosting the Nevada premiere of the documentary The Big Fix. It’s an eye-opening movie that exposes the corruption that surrounded the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
We’re showing the film on the 2-year anniversary of the spill. You may believe that the spill has been cleaned up and the Gulf restored since that disaster, but this film tells a different story — the truth of what the cleanup efforts really involved, and the lasting effects on the Gulf environment. If you’ve never heard of Corexit, come out and get educated!
Saturday, April 21: GA rescheduled, Dinner still on
This week’s General Assembly will be held on Sunday at Idlewild Park.
The People’s Dinner needs your help! Every week Occupy Reno shops, prepares, and cooks, what we call, “The Peoples Dinner” for local persons and families without a home. On Saturdays at 5:00pm we meet outside the Community Assistance Center and serve approximately 300 or more of Reno’s most poverty-stricken. Find out more here.
Sunday, April 22: EARTH DAY at Idlewild Park + Occupy Yoga
Occupy Reno will have a booth at Reno’s annual Earth Day celebration in Idlewild Park. This is a great event for everyone, with live entertainment, food and of course an excellent environment for spreading the Occupy message.
Occupy Yoga will begin at 12pm, and the Occupy Reno General Assembly starts at 1pm. Bring environment-themed signs and be ready to invite new people into our group!
