This month, as part of our Freedom Flicks monthly series,  the Bertha Justice Institute at the Center for Constitutional Rights invites you to a free screening of If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front. This Academy Award-nominated film for Best Documentary goes behind the scenes of the Earth Liberation Front, telling the story of CCR client, environmental activist Daniel McGowan and the events that led to his prosecution and imprisonment as a domestic terrorist, as a result of his activism.

Exploring how far is too far in the fight for environmental justice and in the pursuit of criminal justice, If a Tree Falls is a deeply personal story that interrogates what we mean by “terrorism,” as well as the strategies we use to bring about the social change we want to see.

We will be joined after the screening by CCR attorney and Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act (AETA) expert Rachel Meeropol, social justice activist and human rights and animal rights attorney Bina Ahmad, and Daniel McGowan himself.
