THE CONDOR & THE EAGLE
STANDING WITH INDIGENOUS COMMUNITIES
Against the fossil fuel industry
Tuesday, November 24th at 5pm PT / 8pm ET
This film and panel discussion will introduce you to the Indigenous heroes who are fighting tar sands development, fracking, oil pipelines, and petrochemical plants. The environmental destruction of fossil fuel extraction is only possible because of the invisibility of the people who suffer most. The Condor and the Eagle shows how Indigenous communities are claiming their power and fighting back. By joining this screening, you will support the film impact campaign, Earthworks, and EarthRights Defenders. Please join us. You will be inspired.

Our first events in July were a huge success. 6,000 people watched our film, 150,000 watched our panel discussions and we raised more than $25,000 for impacted communities. We therefore decided to keep organizing events on an even larger scale: we are currently organizing more than 100 online events until December, mobilizing hundreds of communities and organizations, presenting to large audiences the inspiring work being done by land defenders across the Americas. Join us and support frontline communities!
