#012 Oakes Hall, Vermont Law School
Please join the U.S.-China Partnership for Environmental Law for this special movie showing.
The Warriors of Qiugang is a 40-minute Oscar nominated documentary chronicling the incredible story of a small village's fight against the runaway pollution caused by three nearby factories that turned the local river black, killed fish and other wildlife, and "filled the air with foul fumes that burned residents' eyes and throats and sickened children. It is an inspiring story that would be of interest to anyone passionate about citizen and public interest environmental action.
We will be joined by the China Partnership's Associate Director Yanmei Lin for a Q and A following the film. Ms. Lin has worked with the group featured in the film.
Light snacks and refreshments will be served.
