Eau Claire showing of Citizen Koch - Tickets Now On Sale!

Date: 
Wed, 08/20/2014 - 7:30pm

Uppity Wisconsin and Drinking Liberally Eau Claire invite you to a special one-night showing of Citizen Koch in Eau Claire.

In this searing exposé on the state of democracy in America and the fracturing of the Republican Party, Academy Award®-nominated directors Carl Deal and Tia Lessin (Trouble the Water; co-producers of Fahrenheit 9/11 & Bowling for Columbine) follow the money behind the rise of the Tea Party. CITIZEN KOCH investigates the impact of unlimited, anonymous spending by corporations and billionaires on the electoral process, featuring stories of life-long Republicans whose loyalty is tested when their families become collateral damage in the GOP fight to take organized labor out at the knees. Alternately terrifying and funny, CITIZEN KOCH is an essential and powerful portrait of our political times.

Q&A after the showing with Mike McCabe and others.

This is a showing in association with Tugg Inc. We will need to sell a minimum number of tickets to the film in advance for the showing to take place.  You must buy your ticket in advance on-line to attend. Tickets are now on sale at Tugg.

Community Rights Workshop Ettrick

Date: 
Wed, 07/02/2014 - 6:00pm

Becoming We the People

Community Rights Workshop

Lecturer: Paul Cienfuegos

  Please share with others:

 

 

Community Rights are about the inherent right of a local majority of residents to protect the health and welfare of their local communities.  This applies to situations like frac-sand mining or hydraulic fracturing, where rule by the people is often ignored in favor of serving the needs of large mining /oil / gas corporations.

 

More than 150 communities have passed legally binding, locally enforceable Community Rights laws—each of which defines what the community wants, reins in corporate so-called "rights,” and stops legal but harmful corporate activity dead in its tracks. 

 

Prior registration is required, and seating is limited -- register ASAP!

Drinking Liberally Eau Claire is a meeting of progressives in the Chippewa Valley who get together every month to talk about politics, the state of the world, and whatever else is interesting them at the moment.  It's informal, it's friendly, and it's a good time. Come meet with people who care about the state of the world and are interested in doing something about it.  We meet once a month.  Sometimes there's a guest.  Sometimes there isn't.  But there's always a great conversation.
