Grab your popcorn and find a cozy spot in your home this Friday, December 3rd, as the Topanga
Peace Alliance hosts another virtual First Friday Film Night Film Night featuring the documentary
“Standing on Sacred Ground: Profit and Loss.” We will be joined by indigenous activist Lydia
Our feature film for November present indigenous people telling their own stories—and confronting
us with the ethical consequences of our culture of consumption. They expose the industrial threats
to native peoples’ health, livelihood and cultural survival. In Papua New Guinea, a Chinese
government owned nickel mine has violently relocated villagers to a taboo sacred mountain, built a
new pipeline and refinery on contested clan land, and is dumping mining waste into the sea. In Alberta, Canada, First Nations people suffer from rare cancers as their traditional hunting grounds
are contaminated by massive tar sands excavating and refining projects. We will also show short
films giving updates to the legal cases after Chevron was convicted for polluting indigenous lands
in Ecuador.
We will open the Zoom event at around 7:15. Before the film, we will have announcements
regarding upcoming events and actions for peace and social justice. We will enable video so that
we can optionally see each other if you choose to enable your camera.
After the film we will have a discussion with Lydia Ponce, indigenous activist with Idle No More
Venice and the American Indian Movement SoCal Chapter.
