Ape Goes to Eco Warrior Screening

Went down to the University of Victoria to check out Jennifer Pickford’s film Eco Warriors the Documentary, featuring local eco heroes Ingmar Lee, Zoe Blunt, and others.

Here’s a bit of the blurb from the filmmaker’s website: www.pickfordproductions.com

This documentary depicts the increasingly harsh treatment of people who protest against what they see as crimes to the environment. Today, protesters who were once described as environmental activists are being called ‘terrorists’, and environmental activism is being labeled ‘eco-terrorism’.

Environmental activists being labeled as terrorists is an increasingly real threat since United States Federal Bureau of Investigation now includes a category for ‘eco-terrorism’ under its Domestic Terrorism Section. Many see the use of the term ‘eco-terrorist’ as a propaganda term devised by law-enforcement to criminalize or marginalize their protests.
