Meeting: Hollywood comes to Halifax to Keep the Ban: Hot Water

Keep The Ban
Meeting:  Hollywood comes to Halifax to Keep the Ban:  Hot Water

Please join us Saturday, July 13, as Hollywood makes a jaw-dropping debut in Halifax!

The Keep the Ban Coalition is pleased to cosponsor a free screening of Hot Water, a new film presented by We the People of Virginia, Inc., which shares a haunting, unprecedented look at the uranium mining industry in our country.

Join us @ Halifax H.S. @ 7 pm on July 13th for a private screening

 WHEN:  July 13, 2013 at 7pm

WHERE: Halifax County High School Auditorium, 1 High School Circle, South Boston, VA 24592

Admission is free

This powerful film exposes the how the ground water, air, and soil of the American Southwest came to be contaminated with some of the most toxic substances and heavy metals known to man due to the mining of uranium– and the devastating health and environmental impacts that followed. As mining proponents zero in on Virginia, the film serves as a harrowing reminder of what could be around the corner for Southside and downstream communities, including Hampton Roads, if Virginia’s uranium mining ban is lifted.

Come out and meet filmmakers Liz Rogers and Kevin Flint, and see local citizens walk the red carpet as the future stars of a special second edition of the film sharing Virginia’s fight to thwart uranium mining. After the show, hear from veteran speakers and learn how you can help protect our state’s 30-year ban on uranium mining!

We hope to see you there.
