Join PSL Houston at Solidarity Houston for a screening of the Empire Files' Hurricane Harvey episodes; "After Hurricane Harvey, an Abandoned Community Takes Charge" as well as "The Sacrifice Zones of Hurricane Harvey." Producer and co-writer, Mike Prysner, who is also a PSL member, will be joining in via phone to answer questions during a short discussion that is to follow the screening.
With the devastation of Hurricane Harvey came the national spotlight. However, as people around the country and world were shown images of policemen carrying children to safety, entire communities were being completely ignored by the local government. These minority-centric communities; having already been placed in areas with high levels of pollution, saw little to no aid from the government.
Such blatant disregard for the well being of the populace is characteristic of a for-profit government, and can only be bettered by a mass mobilization of the people demanding both that proper care and attention be given to those that need it the most, as well as an enormous push for restrictions on the poisoning of communities by corporations who utilize Houston's Wild West-style zoning laws to wreak havoc for the sake of profit.
