Earth Charter Community Shows Controversial Film

The ECCoLoV (Earth Charter Community of the Lower Valley, Inc.) monthly meeting at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 14, will feature a screening and discussion of the controversial film END:CIV.  This film examines our culture’s addiction to systematic violence and environmental exploitation, and probes the resulting epidemic of poisoned landscapes and shell-shocked nations. 

Based in part on Endgame, the best-selling book by Derrick Jensen, END:CIV asks: “If your homeland was invaded by aliens who cut down the forests, poisoned the water and air, and contaminated the food supply, would you resist?”

The meeting will take place at the Yurt at the Sanctuary at Shepardfields, 59 Bogel Road, East Haddam.

END:CIV is in production; the unauthorized screening will feature the current version of the full length film. END:CIV is a ‘crowd-financed’ project relying on donations from the public.

The program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be available and a discussion will follow the screening. The meeting is presented by ECCoLoV, a non-profit community offering a framework for a sustainable future. The Earth Charter is a declaration of fundamental principles for building a just, sustainable, and peaceful world.

The Earth Charter Community of the Lower Valley – ECCoLoV – is a local 501c3 organized in association with EarthCharterUS and the international Earth Charter movement dedicated to fostering tangible local projects that reflect the values of the Earth Charter.
