"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!"
Remember the pro-Eugenics booth at the #HAILSATANTX Democrat Convention?!? Looks like they're coming to town. Keep Austin Weird:
Population Media Center Part of First Wave of SXSW Eco ProgrammingScreenshot:
June 12th, 2014 |
SHELBURNE, VT – The people have voted! Population Media Center, a global leader in entertainment-education for social good, has been chosen to be part of the program line-up at the 2014 South by Southwest Eco (SXSW Eco) conference taking place October 6-8 in Austin, Texas.
SXSW Eco attracts several thousand members of the global community to explore, engage, and co-create solutions for a sustainable world each year. This piqued the interest of Population Media Center’s Texas-based state chapter (PMC-TX) – which works to engage local elected officials, community leaders, and the Texas public on population and sustainability issues, explaining how Population Media Center (PMC) addresses these issues in ways that enhance human health, human rights, the environment, and economic justice.
PMC submitted a proposal for the panel “Women First: Improve Society and Protect the Environment” featuring four female panelists from a diverse group of organizations that focus on entertainment-education, technology for social good and women’s rights and empowerment.
“It is an honor to be part of this event and take a leadership role in convening this panel,” says Keith Annis, the Director of PMC-TX. “SXSW is well known and respected around the world, and the competition to be selected was tough.”
SxSWEco's Website Confirms:
An expert discussion on innovative approaches to empowering women around the world and how this benefits individuals, societies, and the environment. Women’s rights resulting in individual economic and social empowerment is well-documented. This panel discussion will not only solidify that connection, but will also examine the links between strong sexual and reproductive health and rights and sustainable and healthy societies. Attendees will also learn about diverse barriers faced by women both domestically and internationally; the wide-ranging social, economic and environmental benefits of women having the freedom to access reproductive health care and plan their own families; and, finally, will learn about cutting-edge and avant-garde approaches incorporating technology, entertainment-education and on-the-ground advocacy to empower women and address other global health challenges.Screenshot:
Now who, pray tell, is the Population Media Center?!?
Population Media Center was founded in 1998 by William Ryerson, with the intention of using the extensive experience of experts in entertainment-education to spread the application of the Sabido methodology in addressing population and reproductive health issues. In the fourteen years since PMC’s inception, the organization has been a pioneer in the use of new methodologies for informing people about reproductive health issues and promoting behavior change.

And what issues to they address?!?
The Magnitude Of Population Growth And Its ConsequencesScreenshot:
The world’s population is growing by nearly 80 million people per year. While population growth rates have slowed since their peak in the 1960s, the numbers being added to the population each year continue to be huge, in part because of the growth in the numbers of people of reproductive age. At current rates of birth and death, the world’s population is on a trajectory to double in 49 years.
The median projection of population size by the U.N. Population Division envisions that population growth rates will decline over the coming several decades. But even if that median projection is achieved, the number of people expected to be added to the world’s population in the next 50 years will be almost as large as the number added in the last 50 years.
That magnitude of increase, coming on top of the unprecedented growth that has occurred in the last half-century, will be felt in all aspects of life. It will further stress already strained ecological systems and worsen poverty in much of the developing world, thus aggravating threats to international security. [Emphasis added]
