PRESENTED BY: Meaningful Movies Port Townsend

Location: Port Townsend (click for map)

Bristol Bay, Alaska is home to over half of the world’s Sockeye Salmon. A robust and sustainable fishing economy brings in $1.5 billion in revenue annually, and the local population subsists off of salmon as they have for 10,000 years. One of the largest open pit mines in the world is in the process of being permitted for construction in the heart of this watershed. The Pebble Mine is slated to produce 10 billion tons of toxic waste, 3000 for every person on earth. Join us to learn why the threat of large-scale mining in Bristol Bay is our problem here in the Puget Sound. This event will feature a series of short videos followed by a discussion and Q and A with experts on the topic.

    We enjoyed putting together the short film selection, information handouts and program for this event. The whole kit is available to any other Meaningful Movies chapters (or others) that are interested in publicizing the Pebble Mine issue. We will organize the handouts, commentary notes and advertising material so that it would be easy to host this event even if you yourself do not have an in-depth understanding of the issue.
