After the film, a panel will dig into the issues of police violence, environmental racism, and unequal legal protections that it portrays — issues we’re also seeing at the heart of the Movement for Black Lives.

The film follows the Puyallup Tribe and Puyallup Water Warriors in the fight to protect their Treaty, their water, and their way of life from Puget Sound Energy’s massive fracked gas refinery and storage facility currently being built on Medicine Creek Treaty Territory. The Tacoma LNG project has been controversial from the start — construction began before permits were issued, without legally mandated consultation with the Tribe, with no health or safety analysis, using air emission data based on outdated science and underreported methane leakage rates. A legal appeal of the air permit by the Puyallup Tribe and Earthjustice will be decided in court in October.

Check out the trailer. There will also be a matinee screening on Thursday June 18th from 12pm-2pm.

Register for either screening here!

This fight is not over — and the more daylight we shed on the systemic racism and violence involved in this fracked gas project, the closer we come to stopping it, and the closer we come to breaking these patterns of abuse.

In solidarity and hope,
Stacy Oaks, 350 Seattle
