Environment Hamilton and the Eco Churches of West Hamilton present the film the Power of Community –How Cuba Survived Peak Oil.

The free presentation of the award-winning film takes place at St. Paul’s United Church, 29 Park St. W., Dundas on Sunday, Nov. 1 from 7-9 p. m. in the church parlour. A discussion period led by Environment Hamilton volunteer Richard Reble will follow the screening.

When the Soviet Union collapsed in 1990, Cuba's economy went into a tailspin. With imports of oil cut by more than half –and food by 80 percent – people were desperate. The film tells of the hardships and struggles, as well as the community and creativity of the Cuban people. Cuba, one of the few countries that has faced such a crisis – the massive reduction of fossil fuels –is an example of options and hope for all people.

Another sign of hope in the local community is the banding together of many different faith groups to form the Eco Churches of West Hamilton. This organization comprises a growing list of members from St. Augustine’s Catholic, St. James Anglican, Knox Presbyterian, Christian Life Assembly and St. Paul’s, Rock Chapel and Westdale United Churches.
