June 15, 2013 (San Diego) – The world premiere of the documentary film “Who are My People?”, presented by the Activist San Diego, will be June 22, 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. at Joyce Beers Uptown Community Center, 3900 Vermont Street, San Diego.  The film created by Robert Lundahl is about the environmental struggles, indigenous lands and native peoples.  Lundahl and several tribal elders and leaders will attend the premier.

The one-hour television documentary film takes an in depth look at the current and controversial topic of the build out of large scale renewable energy in the deserts of the west. The Los Angeles Times indicates, we are at a “Flashpoint” between competing value-systems. Bodies have been exhumed, and geoglyphs destroyed, in an area that is a long-term indigenous settlement.    “Who Are My People?” depicts how the world's energy firms like Solar Millennium, the German Solar Giant, have met their match in a small group of Native American elders, in the hottest desert on the planet.  The film takes us behind the scenes of two of the largest solar projects in the world, "fast tracked" by US renewable energy policies.

Suggested donations are $4-10.  For more information visit www.ActivistSanDiego.org/node/4284 and http://WhoAreMyPeople.com.
