MANTENO – The Village of Manteno is signaling a clear message: it’s done with the relentless criticism surrounding its Gotion Chinese deal.
In a bold act following very intense opposition voiced in two town meetings, the Village channels an authoritarian tone. Comments found themselves disabled when the Village released an FAQ sheet, coupled with a promotional video courtesy of Gotion.
This promotional piece, characterized by its slightly off-kilter English and stunning drone visuals, showcases solar panels, intricate machinery, and intriguingly, desert violinists. But as the video parades its line of machinery, it brings into question the promise of creating over 2,500 job opportunities, which was a major selling point for the site.
Gotion’s dubbed message delivers a dream of environmental synergy and longevity. It spins a tale of communities and nations uniting for the cause of green energy. However, even with the allure of drones, pianos, and desert melodies, one has to ponder: Are these elements enough to truly champion the Gotion deal?
Want to weigh in? Well, you might need to venture to the broader internet since Manteno’s social platforms have sealed off any feedback channels.
