Mailbag: Iowa: Film: Sandmining

Hello Friends, I'm writing to invite you to attend a free film tonight at 7pm in Decorah at the Peace and Justice Center. The film "Rooted Lands" shows how a citizens' community rights ordinance succeeded in banning hydrocarbon extraction--seemingly against all odds, in a struggle between the rights of indigenous people and the so-called rights of big gas and oil. You have expressed some interest in the new Community Rights work that citizens of NE Iowa have initiated in response to the threat of frac sand mining in our area. Community Rights ordinances are being passed all around the country-150 and rising. Citizens are finding this an effective way to ban the corporate activities that cause harm to their commonly owned resources: air, water, land, and health. Here's more info. And the site for yet more is: http://rootedlands.com
