Local organizations Gainesville Loves Mountains, Collective Progression, Citizens Climate Lobby, and Cinema Verde are collaborating to present the film The Last Mountain at the Civic Media Center on Monday April 16th, 2012 beginning at 7pm.
The film highlights the issue of mountaintop removal (MTR) coal mining, and the event will aim to draw the connection between environmental devastation in Appalachia and Gainesville’s energy consumption. Guest speaker Kathy Selvage, a lifelong resident of southwest Virginia, will provide a firsthand account of what it’s like to live in “Coal Country.” Artwork by Anna-Grace Sampson that focuses on the destructive mining practice will also be on display.

Please join us! April 16th 2012 at the Civic Media Center at 7pm. The Civic Media Center is located at 433 S. Main St. in Gainesville.
