“Pipe Dreams” documentary film showing January 30 about XL Pipeline

The Heartland Film Society is showing the documentary film Pipe Dreams at the Elks Theater in Rapid City, South Dakota on Monday January 30, at 6:30pm. Admission is $5.00. It is sponsored by Dakota Rural Action and is one showing only. DRA is a grassroots family agriculture and conservation group that organizes South Dakotans to protect our family farmers and ranchers, natural resources, and unique way of life.

The film is about the proposed Keystone XL pipeline. Although the pipeline has been temporarily halted, the proponents are already pushing for its quick approval again.

Following the film a panel discussion will be held. Some of the landowners featured in the documentary will be on the panel. Local panel members will include Jim Peterson of South Dakota Peace and Justice, former State Senator Tom Katus, and others.

Occupy Rapid City supports this film showing. We will hold our General Assembly meeting at 5:30pm that evening at the Elks Theater prior to the film showing. It is an open meeting with the public invited.

Heartland Film Society presents “Pipe Dreams” Monday, Jan. 30 at the Elks Theatre. One showing only at 6:30 p.m.

“Pipe Dreams”

Across the heartland of America, farmers and landowners are fighting to protect their land, their water, and their livelihood in what has become the most controversial environmental battle in the U.S. today: The Keystone XL Pipeline. Routed from Hardisty, Alberta to the Texas Gulf Coast, this tar sands pipeline is set to cross the country’s largest freshwater resource, the Ogallala Aquifer, and the fragile Sandhills of Nebraska, posing devastating consequences to human health, livestock, and agriculture. Source: IMDb.com
