Massive politician turnout for "An inconvenient truth" - including prime minister
Edited on Mon Oct-30-06 05:47 AM by BelgianMadCow
This morning, in belgium state news :

A woman, Margaretha Guidone, who has seen the film was so inspired by it that she went looking for sponsors to try and bring a viewing to politicians in Belgium.

She found sponsors in two environmental activist groups, Bond Beter Leefmilieu (Union Better Environment) and Natuurpunt.

And she has found politicians : 200 of the political elite are coming to this film. Two theatres have been filled in two days.
Among them the prime minister Verhofstadt, and other federal, flemish and brussels ministers as well as the heads of several parties.

wOOt!!

It would be great if this news reaches Al Gore in some way.

It had practically a trailer for the movie, a top item on it, and pictures of flabbergasted enthusiast politicians who just saw the film in the shwoing organised by this woman, plus the link to Britain hiring Al as an adviser. And lot's of Al of course.

Hello!

3. Yeah, Al Gore micromanages...
he knows. No way 9/11 would have happened if Gore had been able to take his rightful place as our Prez. History and Karma had other plans.

5. I'll do my part in spreading the vibe (but have to see it myself still)
It is playing in prime time (8 PM) in all theatres of the only national chain we have, Kinepolis.
