Raising Awareness of Pressing Environmental Issues

Invisible Hand

The Sonnewald Life Institute will show the new documentary film Invisible Hand at 2 p.m., October 21, at Sacred Heart Parish Center, followed by a Q&A discussion. It addresses the “rights of nature” movement arising out of the exploitation of capitalism, defined as “the defining battle of our times between democracy and corporations”.

The event is sponsored by environmental watchdog Public Herald. They note the film is important because it will have real impacts on area communities into the future. For instance, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection sued Grant Township last year for trying to protect its environment because it claims that the township doesn't have the authority to prohibit radioactive fracking waste at the local level.

Admission is free. Location: 1031 Sprenkle Rd., Spring Grove. For more information, call 717-225-6636 or visit InvisibleHandFilm.com and PublicHerald.org.
