Your Call: In Company Town, Crossett, AK residents take on the powerful Koch Industries

Oct 4, 2017

  

The new documentary Company Town follows a group of citizens in Crossett, a small town in Arkansas, who are fighting for their lives against Georgia-Pacific, one of the nation’s largest paper mills and chemical plants, owned by the billionaire Koch brothers.

 

Residents are slowly dying from cancers that many experts have linked to the toxins in the paper mill’s wastewater and air pollution. But when they turn to the EPA for help, they don’t find the relief they need. We'll talk to the director of Company Town about the film and what it takes to get true environmental justice in this country. Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.

 

Guests:

 

Natalie Kotke-Masocco, director, writer, and producer of Company Town

 

David Bouie, pastor, community leader, and former employee of Georgia-Pacific
