The Reluctant Radical Film Screening
On October 11, 2016, at 8:30 A.M. Ken Ward turned off the flow of oil from the Alberta tar sands into Washington state. The Reluctant Radical explores the path that led Ken from acting within environmental organizations to taking direct action civil disobedience instead despite the personal costs. He hopes to awaken people to the climate crisis caused by fossil fuel use.
Please join us for a community screening of this film at 7 P.M. on Thursday, October 25, 2018, at the Seattle Mennonite Church, 3120 NE 125th Street, Seattle. Ken Ward and Michael Foster–two of the five Valve Turners who shut off all tar sands oil to the United States that day–will be present to discuss their actions and answer audience questions after the film.
Admission is free, but there will be an opportunity to contribute to Climate Direct Action, which helps fund legal defense costs for the Valve Turners and other climate activists. Emily Johnston and Annette Klapstein go on trial in October in Minnesota where they turned off a tar sands valve. Ken, Michael (who was released in July after six months in a North Dakota prison), and Leonard Higgins still face legal costs.
This event is sponsored by University Unitarian Church, Seattle Mennonite Church, and Seattle First Baptist Church. More information can be found at https://www.thereluctantradicalmovie.comOpens a New Window. and http://
