Burning the Future: Coal in America
A film about the impact of coal mining on communities
Monday, January 18, 7 pm, Fanny Bay Hall – Admission by donation.
This multi-award winning documentary examines the conflict between the coal industry and residents of West Virginia. Faced with toxic ground water, the obliteration of 1.4 million acres of mountains, and a government that appeases industry, the residents launch a fight to arouse the nation’s help in protecting their mountains, saving their families and preserving their way of life. This film is a primer for communities who want to know more about the effects of coal mining.
Refreshments and desserts will be available. The film is presented by CoalWatch Comox Valley and sponsored by the World Community Development Education Society. Proceeds will go to CoalWatch Comox Valley.
