From Betsy Tuel:
Film Screening and Discussion
Irena Salina's award-winning documentary investigation into what experts label the most important political and environmental issue of the 21st century - The World Water Crisis. Salina builds a case against the growing privatization of the world's dwindling fresh water supply with an unflinching focus on politics, pollution, human rights, and the emergence of a domineering world water cartel. Interviews with scientists and activists are included.
Rosendale Community Center
A representative of Save The Lakes will speak briefly about the connection between the themes in the movie and the threat to our local water by Canopy Development's proposed resort and residential development at Williams Lake / Binnewater Lakes in Rosendale. This project can threaten a public aquifer and negatively affect the ecosystems, water levels, and water quality of the lakes through over-use for the benefit of a wealthy, private gated community and its corporate backers. Donations of time and money to Save The Lakes will be accepted. For further information about STL go to www.SaveTheLakes.us
