Action of the Week
The Necessity Series is a two-part documentary directed by Jan Haaken, filmmaker and professor emeritus of psychology at Portland State University, and Samantha Praus, researcher and filmmaker.
Much like Part I, Necessity II is guided by Native perspectives and weaves into the film dramatic regional sites where people are fighting fossil fuels. The film continues the story of activists enlisting the Necessity Defense, this time in a precedent-setting jury trial in Oregon after a direct action by Extinction Rebellion PDX at Zenith Energy in Portland. This story of climate resistance in the Pacific Northwest brings into view a historical landscape of tribal leaders, Indigenous activists, labor leaders, and white allies as they resist oil trains and terminals in the transport of highly toxic products through critical waterways and treaty lands.
