Accelerate U.P. is not grassroots if Rio Tinto is involved, funding it yet! I'm surprised and extremely disappointed that you have played right into Rio Tinto's hands and allowed them to invade our community even more.
Has anyone seen "Promised Land," with Matt Damon? The movie very effectively shows how a big, extractive (in this case, natural gas, through fracking) company attempts to schmooze and buy (and donate) themselves into a community.
The film's world-known company even sponsors the local Little League team, with their logo on the back of the kid's jerseys. Sound familiar?
It's way past time to pull the wool away from our eyes. When will we ever learn? When will we ever learn?
