Film nights

That old furphy about how Cuba "survived peak oil" following the collapse of the Soviet Union in the late 1980s-early 1990s is still doing the rounds in parts of Australia.

As you can see from this brief item in the "socialist" weekly Green Left, a film titled "The Power of Community" is being shown to small but obviously enthusiastic groups of environmentalists, Castro supporters and other assorted fellow travellers.

According to the paper, "After the film, the crowd discussed how to bring Cuba’s lessons of sustainable development to Australia, noting the need for a society that puts the planet and humanity before the corporate bottom line."

Can hardly wait ...
