Disobedience is a film about a new phase of the climate movement: courageous action that is being taken on the front lines of the climate crisis on every continent, led by regular people fed up with the power and pollution of the fossil fuel industry.
Disobedience tells the story of four communities preparing to participate in Break Free from Fossil Fuels actions in May 2016.
Break Free events are being planned on every continent, from May 03 to 15, 2016, targeting coal, oil and gas projects. The wave of civil disobedience, touted as the largest in the history of the environmental movement, kicked off on 03 May with a call to shut down the UK’s largest open-cast coal mine in Ffos-y-Fran, Wales.
The film is a powerful journey, featuring Break Free organisers across the world preparing to mobilise for major actions this May. It shows that the global movement to keep fossil fuels in the ground is growing in size and courage.
Disobedience features author and activist Naomi Klein, 350.org co-founder Bill McKibben, board member Lidy Nacpil and dozens of inspiring voices from front-line fights around the world.
Screenings are being planned across the globe to support ongoing organising to defeat the fossil fuel industry.
If you’re moved by what you see in Disobedience, you can join thousands of people in principled, peaceful escalation this May.
