Show the world, uranium mining

SoVaNow.com / July 11, 2013


Dear Viewpoint:

You are cordially invited to a RED CARPET EVENT for the special preview showing of the new documentary “Hot Water” on Sat. July 13th at 7 pm in the Halifax County High School auditorium. Liz Rogers, the producer, will introduce her dramatic documentary film, and she is bringing her film crew to add a segment on our uranium mining fight right here in Virginia. This riveting film graphically exposes the uranium mining industry in a shocking way—-it will make you fighting mad—-it will make you want to do something about it. So, come see this provocative film and meet the Hollywood producer. Let’s show the world how strongly we oppose uranium mining—-let’s fill all 1000 seats. All regional groups fighting uranium mining and all major donors will be recognized at the event.

As you know, we were able to turn back VUI in the last General Assembly session—-but rest assured they have not gone away; in fact, VUI has ramped up its efforts by sponsoring wine festivals and free
barbecue cook-outs used to coerce people into signing misleading jobs creation petitions. VUI is also paying young college kids to circulate petitions at country stores urging people to help them remove Virginia’s ban on uranium mining.

Daughter Sarah and Liz have become very good e-mail/phone pals, and when Sarah contacted her she was ecstatic about visiting with us and including us in this
documentary. We have definitely found a new friend. So, y’all come!!! Let’s welcome Hollywood to Halifax——with real Southern Hospitality.

See you there,
Jack and Sarah Dunavant

This event is sponsored by We The People of Virginia and co-sponsored by the Roanoke River Basin Association, Virginia chapter of the Sierra Club, Keep the Ban, The Virginia Coalition, PRIDE and others.
