We Recently Lost An Ally

I'm saddened to report that Michael Ruppert, one of the most ardent and active voices for change of the last few decades, recently committed suicide. This is the full interview he conducted with Peter Joseph for the Zeitgeist: Moving Forward film, released in honor of his life and his memory. There is little that can be said of Michael beyond the plain facts of his life's work, helping to make the world a better place for all people and the commitment to pursuing the truth, no matter where it lead or what conclusions were drawn from it. Let this be a reminder that we should not take each other for granted, and to utilize the time we are granted with wisdom and care in the endeavor of changing the zeitgeist towards a positive and sustainable future for all.

ZDay 2014 Event Videos Now Available

We would like to thank everyone who participated in and attended our recent Zday 2014 event. The global Zeitgeist Movement continues to be one of the most anticipated and significant events of the year for ours and many other chapters around the world. We are glad to see new members of the community attend and connect with us and other activists and educators in our area, and look forward to the new and exciting projects and events we can plan and attend together. Below, you will find the videos of the presentations that were given at our local event. I hope you watch them and learn more about the possibilities and importance of transitioning to a resource based economy. We look forward to upcoming opportunities to share this train of thought with more people, and we hope to see you there too!

Two Announcements

The Rio Grande Valley Zeitgeist Movement is happy to announce that the city of Brownsville now has a local chapter of the Zeitgeist Movement! We have always wanted to better serve the community of Brownsville, but were unable to do so. We are fortunate that local member Juan Berlanga has taken the initiative of forming a local chapter. You can join them on their new Facebook group and start planning to engage the local community and help make the world a better place for all people.

Speaking of planning, our local Z-Day 2014 event is beginning to take shape! Our local event will tentatively be held at the Edinburg city library on Saturday, March 15th. We are announcing a request for presentations. If you have a 15-20 minute presentation regarding a resource based economy, or any topic related to it or the local community of the Rio Grande Valley, please contact us at and submit your ideas. We look forward to seeing all of the creative communications and ideas from our local activist community and hope to see you in attendance! We will share more details as the event planning unfolds. Thank you for your time and attention.
