FILM SCREENING: “RESISTANCE”—Thu, July 24 at 6:30 PM at Paramus Public Library, E. 116 Century Road, Paramus, NJ. The misuse of antibiotics in factory farm animals is leading to the spread of antibiotic-resistant bacteria (superbugs), a trend that threatens the effectiveness of antibiotic drugs needed to save people’s lives. According to the CDC, each year in the United States at least 2 million people become infected with bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics and at least 23,000 people die as a result of these infections. The Sierra Club North Jersey Group is joining with Food and Water Watch in urging our federal government to pass legislation that would stop the misuse of medically important antibiotics on factory farms. Food and Water Watch is kicking off their campaign by bringing a newly released and dynamic documentary to New Jersey entitled Resistance, and we’d like you to join us for a free premiere screening!
