Help Save Great Lakes Water

Get your tickets now for the Michigan premier of  the award-winning movie, Flow: For Love of Water at Traverse City’s State Theatre, November 16, 2008.  Flow was an Official Sundance Selection and winner of Best Documentary at the recent U.N. Film Festival. 

Immediately following the film, attend a reception and panel discussion at City Opera House with former Governor Bill Milliken, filmmaker Irena Salina, environmental attorney Jim Olson, author Dave Dempsey (Water for Sale), and Terry Swier, President of Michigan Citizens for Water Conservation.  Enjoy food, music, poetry.  Learn about the future risks to the world’s water and support a campaign to protect the public’s water in the Great Lakes from export as a private product for private gain.

This film is an inspiring documentary on the world’s water crisis, done with spirit, art and hope. It includes highlights of Michigan citizens who are fighting to make sure Great Lakes water remains a public commons shared and held in public trust by all.  Hope to see you there!

  • One of the greatest threats to Lk Michigan in northern Michigan is the water pollution from Bay Harbor that contains mercury and other heavy metals. Will this be discussed?

    To my knowledge, the Bay Harbor situation will not be discussed. The main purpose of the meeting is to strategize on how to get legislation or a constitutional amendment passed that will unequivocally establish that the waters of Michigan are owned by the citizens of the state. — Jeff Smith, Editor
