Join the Student Activities Board and ELSB Green Initiatives for a free screening of the excellent documentary Sludge.

Sludge documents the four years after the Martin County Sludge Spill.

Based on interviews and news of the disaster’s federal investigation, the movie chronicles the continuing effects of the spillage to the environment and community, as well as the ongoing threat of similar disasters throughout the coalfield region.

It also touches on the story of Jack Spadaro, a coal sludge pond “whistleblower” and his continued activism against unsustainable mining techniques.
