Please join us in a screening of "Oneida Peacekeepers" by Shaun Brode about
Danielle Schenandoah and the struggle of her People. She is a seed saver and
teaches Traditional Indigenous community farming methods, which have always
been organic and biodiverse. She is also the founder of "Ka-nah-hi^Yo: "It's a
good seed", Indigenous Cultural Knowledge Seed/Plant Preservation Conservancy,
education and dissemination project. Danielle will be available for a Q and
A afterwards, and we will pass the hat for donations for her safe return
across the border to Kanawake reserve in Canada.
We will also screen "The Leech and the Earthworm" a film by Deborah Harry,
the leading researcher on genetic engineering, and founder of "Indigenous
People's Council on Biocolonialism" www.IPCB.org. Her film is a must see and a
true eye-opener for anyone with questions about genetic engineering. The
all-original soundtrack and imagery is vibrant.
Both Deborah Harry and Danielle Schenandoah have been presenting at the UN
this week for the Pemanent Forum on Indigenous Issues.
Please join us for a warm night of film and festivity at the Spoken Word

June 15th is Lobby day in Albany in our campaign to block genetic engineering
in new york state. We have several legislators ready to block GE. Please
come see these films which truly show how inherent rights are far more important
than intellectual property rights- patents were meant to cover inventions,
not living organisms.
Please forward widely and bring a friends!

Only after the last tree has been cut down,
Only after the last river has been poisoned,
Only after the last fish has been caught,
Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten.
