Alliance Rubber Company Sponsors Arkansas Premiere Of Peter Navarro's Documentary "Death By China" On Manufacturing Day
Alliance Rubber Company, located in Hot Springs, Ark., is sponsoring the Arkansas Premiere of Peter Navarro's manufacturing film, "Death by China," as part of its Manufacturing Day festivities.
The movie premiere is scheduled for Manufacturing Day, October 5, and will be held at Market Street Cinema, located at 1506 Market Street in Little Rock, Ark.
"Alliance Rubber Company is pleased to be working with Jim Lilly, one of the leading manufacturing consultants in the state of Arkansas, in this important event, which we hope will facilitate needed public debate integral to the future success of our manufacturing facilities in the United States," said Bonnie Swayze, president of Alliance Rubber Company.
Manufacturing officials from across the state as well as the film's producer Greg Autry will be present for the premiere. A special forum, featuring Autry and other key speakers as well as interactive audience discussion, will immediately follow the film's screening.
"I am proud to be invited to Little Rock on Manufacturing Day to discuss the future of America and job creation. America's economy has always been built on the handwork of the Americans that make things. Alliance Rubber Company and thousands of other small and medium business are the backbone of our nation and the engine of our recovery," Autry said. "I hope everyone will find the time to watch
our movie and gain a better understanding of how our consumer and policy choices that have been harmful to American manufacturing threaten the future of all Americans and the world."
The writer of the film, business professor Peter Navarro, who works at the University of California-Irvine, said he created the movie to emphasis how the U.S. is losing its ability to compete in manufacturing "because of China's illegal production subsidies."
"In 2001 we let China into our markets here in the United States and, since that time, we've shut down over 50,000 factories, lost 6 million manufacturing jobs," Navarro said. "We've got 25 million people in this country that can't find a decent job, and we now owe $3 trillion to the world's largest totalitarian nation."
He hopes the film will encourage reform and stimulate recovery. Learn more about Navarro's work by visiting www.deathbychina.com. The film, which will run October 5-11 at Market Street Cinema, is 79 minutes in length. Alliance Rubber Company has seats available for the 7 p.m. show on October 5 that are free to the public. Tickets are available on a first come, first serve basis. RSVP for tickets at www.rubberband.com/rsvptickets.
