"Occupy The Farm" film screening at Sunnyvale Public Library on Mon. 10/12/15 6-9p

Films of Vision and Hope comes to Sunnyvale! You are invited to join us for a free screening of the film "Occupy The Farm" at the Sunnyvale Public Library, 665 West Olive, Sunnyvale, CA, on Monday evening 10/12/15 from 6:30-9p.

Synopsis: OCCUPY THE FARM tells the story of 200 urban farmers who walk onto a publicly-owned research farm and plant two acres of crops in order to save the land from becoming a real-estate development.
This direct action set up a vibrant tent village on land destined to become condos, while their crops blocked the development plans of a cash-starved public institution, the University of California, Berkeley.
Their confrontational, yet hopeful tactic raises important questions: What are the most effective ways to bring healthy food to hungry, urban neighborhoods? And, who should control research and education at the world’s most important public university: private interests or the public good?

Brought to you by Charles Street Gardens, Full Circle Farm Sunnyvale and Transition Silicon Valley. Here is a link to the trailer: http://occupythefarmfilm.com/
