sign for Charleston, the Holy City of America
Thursday, August 8, 2013
"I'm sure all of you will agree when I say that Charleston is one of the last All-American cities that has not been grossly tarnished by anyone or thing. For me personally, I like being able to walk down the narrow, spellbinding cobblestone streets of the peninsula and feel the history behind it: not walk or run along the battery and see a bunch of grossly intoxicated kids smoking cigarettes on the front porch of a house that has more history behind it than they could even begin to fathom. If you really think on it, any MTV real world show has revolved around sex, drama, run-ins with the police, and drunken stupidity. I do not want to see this city succumb to this behavior even more so than it is now! Charleston dates all the way back to the 1670's, and I'll be damned if we let MTV's reality TV show ruin the multi-century old reputation behind Charleston." - Colin Raden
As many of you know, Charleston has been getting a lot of attention lately, being given #1 titles two years in a row. As a result, many people have been vacationing to the city, which was gridlocked before this ever took place. Now, more packed than ever, CBS has been given the green light to start filming their television series "Reckless" which is only adding to the chaos. News crews for this show have been spotted on Broad and King streets, creating a slew of stop-dead traffic where ever they go. Now, today 7 August, MTV has revealed that they too will be filming a new television series here in the Holy City called "The Real World: Charleston." This TV show is to be set at a house along the Battery, as well as many bars throughout the city. The purpose of this petition is to stop MTV from filming their new TV show here in Charleston, SC. The city is too jam-packed as it is. It takes 15 minutes to go one mile in some areas of the peninsula as a result of how many people are here, and it is creating a huge inconvenience for those that call Charleston their home. Sign this petition and hopefully we can show MTV that there simply is not enough room for them to film their reality show here. - change. org
I hope all can be understanding of this situation, wherever you may reside. Charleston is a place I hold dear to my heart and the South is very particular of it's history, charm and manners. We tend to keep it the way it was when it was first founded and we are very proud of the beauty and charm it holds. Especially in Charleston and on the Battery streets where it has become a historic destination for American history. Please, take the time to sign the petition. It's free and only takes five seconds of your time. It would mean the world to me. We don't want trashy TV and the worldliness choas to step foot in the Holy City.
