World Earth Day Invitation from the Anti-Smelter Alliance

you may be aware that Sunday 22 April, 2007, is World Earth
The significance of this day is ever-increasing as the world struggles
to control the decimation of the environment, changing climates due to
global warming and the ensuing threats to food and water security.
Our country is not exempt as our small island faces the possibility of
over-industrialisation - which would likely result in the extinction of
agriculture (along with the ability to feed ourselves) and our compromised
health. The Anti-Smelter Alliance has planned a celebration of World Earth
Day at the site of the proposed Alutrint smelter at Union Village on
Your presence would be greatly appreciated.
It is hoped that this ceremony will send a message of solidarity to all
concerned citizens and organisations.
Everyone is asked to gather at Square Deal Corner at 8:30 a.m. This will
be followed by an Interfaith Service to pray for the future of our country.
The Alliance also feels it is important to leave a green 'flag' to mark
the occasion - as such, you are invited to bring along and plant a tree or
shrub at the proposed smelter site. Included the day's activities, which
will run until 11.30 a.m., will be a cultural section.
Comrades, as the clock ticks and we draw near to a decided fate for our
land, it is imperative that anti-smelter activists show steely strenght and
It is of the utmost importance that our numbers be many.
We ask you for a firm comittment to help us make a statement on Sunday.
Please come out and let it be seen that the movement remains, that we grow
and that we will not give up or give in. The message must be clear - NO
We thank you for your support.
