The END of THE LINE to be shown at the CG Library

Sierra Club NYC Group Presents
WED JULY 14, 6- 7:45 PM
Clinton and Union St.

Film: The End of the Line, based on a book by Charles Clover of the same title.

The foods that we take even more for granted because they are harder for us to see: Fish.

The End of the Line goes beneath the surface to examine the impact of overfishing and the fight for survival of many of our ocean species. This, along with the catastrophe of what is happening in the Gulf, prompts us to take out or goggles and examine our relationships with the sea and all life around it! 83 minutes.
Join us for a discussion afterward with Kathy Schwarz, a Nutritionist and Public Health Professional and Long-time Sierra Club Activist.
