Video full documentary "To Wisconsin with Love" from Paulette Moore and EMU Student Spring Project Team 2014

Watch "To Wisconsin with Love" (44 minutes) This beautiful student film is a cautionary story about how communities are affected by extractive industry. Students at Eastern Mennonite University in Harrisonburg, Virginia made "To Wisconsin with Love" to link the Wisconsin Penokee Hills/Ojibwe/mine resistance fight with water poisoning, water contamination and extractive industries in West Virginia. Using the history of mining and the recent Elk River contamination in West Virginia as a reference, the film looks at the developing story of a proposed mine in the Penokee Hills of Wisconsin. The eventual 22 mile-long site would make the mine the largest open-pit iron mine in the world.
