The Sierra Club, in partnership with the Publish What You Pay coalition, is proud to announce a complimentary screening of the film Sweet Crude at the historic Plaza Theatre in Atlanta. Nigerian environmental and human rights activist Von Kemedi will be in attendance to lead a discussion directly after the screening.

Sweet Crude captures the tragedies of oil extraction in the Niger Delta where billions of dollars of crude oil flow under the feet of a desperate people and immense wealth and abject poverty stand in stark contrast.

Just as the Gulf oil spill threatens to devastate communities here in the US, communities the world over face ongoing threats to their livelihoods and environment while seldom benefiting from the wealth generated through natural resource extraction.

This screening is part of our organizations' ongoing efforts to help citizens from resource-rich countries hold their governments accountable for the management of their natural resources.
