Join us in recognizing Indigenous Peoples’ Day with a film screening and discussion of current land struggles in Shinnecock and Lenapehoking territory.
We will be hosting a virtual screening of CONSCIENCE POINT, a film about the Shinnecock Nation and their fight to reclaim and protect Shinnecock Hills, located in the Hamptons. Exploring the roots of American inequity, greed and pollution, CONSCIENCE POINT contrasts the values of those for whom beautiful places are a commodity- who regard land as raw material to be developed for profit and pleasure-and those locals for whom land means community, belonging, heritage and home.
There will also be a short film and discussion by No North BK Pipeline to discuss the current land struggle to stop the expansion of a massive fracked gas transmission pipeline. The current segment includes the installation of approximately 6,200 feet of new pipeline through predominately Black and Brown neighborhoods, threatening the health and safety of nearly 153,000 people living in the evacuation zone.
This event is co-hosted by: The Red Nation East Coast and No North BK Pipeline, in collaboration with Free CUNY and Rank & File Action.
