Colorado’s Oil & Gas Wars – Film Discussion
The panel discussion about Fracking the System: Colorado’s Oil & Gas Wars is now available in Halt the Harm Network.
What a powerful film! Everyone who attended received a special link to watch the film before it’s officially released. While the full film isn’t available to watch publicly – it should premiere sometime in the fall.
The film told the recent history of communities in Colorado fighting back against the harms of the oil & gas industry. We saw firsthand the sordid history of the industry’s efforts to disrupt the movement and control local and state politics, and how activists fought to overcome it.
Here the view the thought-provoking discussion with the filmmakers, Brian Hedden and Jessica Daugherty, and activist Patricia Garcia-Nelson, which took place after the screening.
Brian, Jessica, and Patricia answered questions from Halt the Harm members about the harrowing story behind the documentary, what’s happened since the events of the film, and the state of the movement to halt the harms of oil & gas in Colorado.
It was an excellent education on how groups in Colorado have navigated an adverse political climate in recent years.
