Missed the Meeting? Catch the Premiere of the Film

There was a lot going on Thursday night and many of our regulars missed the presentation about Dow and its dioxin pollution down river from the Midland Plant. Although the presentation won't quite be the same, the story certainly is.

The ICDP proudly announces the Michigan premiere of the documentary, "The Long Shadow" on Sunday, Oct. 9 at 6:30 p.m. at the community room at The Crossings on Broadway. The 2003 film by MSU grad student Steve Meador documents the battle between riverfront residents and Dow Chemical Co. that has dumped dioxins into the Tittabawassee River for decades. Although we teach our children to clean up their messes, Dow hasn't quite grown up yet and the documentary details the subterfuge and political maneuverings of a company that has spent millions on PR to avoid spending a hundred times that on cleaning up dioxin contamination.
