SPEAKERS AND A MOVIE

January 18th:  Environmental concerns are abundant both locally and nationally.  We will be having Native American speakers address the following topics at 7:00 pm at the Shawano Civic Center (225 S. Main St.)

  •    The Menominee Nation is concerned about the ground water issues that could affect Wisconsin if gold and other metals are allowed to be extracted in open pit and shaft mines.
  •    Many of the local Native Americans have visited Standing Rock in North Dakota and we will hear about their experiences.

Come and learn more about these topics.
February 15th:  The movie “Requiem for the American Dream” will be shown to the public at 7:00 pm at the Civic Center.  Naom Chomsky, one of America’s most important thinkers, narrates the ten principles that have brought our county to its present state.  It traces the origins of our democracy and how it has evolved through history.
Following the showing there will be a discussion of the ideas in the film and their importance for future Democratic goals.
