Governor Reveals True Intent of Prop. 1 - the Brown Water Plan - by Dan Bacher
Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla noted that Proposition 1 is closely allied to the Bay Delta Conservation Plan, a Brown scheme that is a reprise of the Peripheral Canal. The BDCP would authorize the construction of two gigantic trans-Delta tunnels that would devastate the Delta, cost $70 billion or more, and benefit corporate San Joaquin Valley farmers at the expense of citizen ratepayers.

The Home of the Free Speech Movement Suppresses Freedom of Speech - by Dan Bacher
"We were there Tuesday because the administration shut down the event about the privatization of a natural resource, water, at the site of resistance against the privatization of land," said Paula Jaramillo of Students for Engaged and Active Learning (SEAL). "We were shut down by someone who actively privatizes life itself through patenting GMOs."

World Trade Organization Attacks Commonsense Country of Origin Labels - by Food & Water Watch
Washington, D.C.—Today, the World Trade Organization (WTO) ruled that mandatory country of origin labels (COOL) rules for meat and poultry that went into effect in 2013 still ran afoul of the global trade rules. The WTO’s compliance panel decided that the goal of country of origin labels was not trade illegal, but it narrowly found that the implementation of the COOL rules discouraged livestock imports from Canada and Mexico.

Big Oil Company Donates $250,000 to Yes on Proposition 1 Campaign - by Dan Bacher
It’s hard not to see the irony of a big oil company contributing $250,000 to a campaign for a water bond that allocates $900 million for alleged “groundwater sustainability” less than two weeks after the Center for Biological Diversity released state documents revealing that almost 3 billion gallons of oil industry wastewater were illegally dumped into Central California aquifers that supply drinking water and irrigation water for farms.

Obama Selling Out California to Westlands Water District - by Dan Bacher
Bill Jennings, the chairman and executive director of the California Sportfishing Protection Alliance, observed the deal is bad for many water contractors, not just fisheries and the environment. “It would give Westlands a permanent water contract before all Endangered Species Act litigation is completed,” said Jennings. “In effect, this gives Westlands a leg up over other south-of-Delta contractors.” Photo of (center) Bill Jennings slamming Governor Jerry Brown's $7.5 billion w...

CDC Cover Up: Blacks are More Harmed by Fluoride - by Fluoride Action Network
When fluoridation was virtually the only fluoride source, black children suffered double the toxic effects of fluoride than others in the first human fluoridation experiment conducted on the entire population of Grand Rapids, Michigan, which began in 1945. To preserve fluoridation, it seems, this information has not been broadcast to the Black community.

CREDO Action urges NO vote on Prop. 1, the California Water Bond - by Dan Bacher
CREDO joins Food and Water Watch and AFSCME 57 in opposing Prop. 1. The Con argument for Prop. 1 on the Progressive Voter Guide states: "Proposition 1 is an expensive and unfair taxpayer giveaway to special interests that won’t solve the drought or help secure our water future. It allocates over $3.6 billion, without oversight by the legislature, to build dams and pay for water transfers for corporate agribusiness. Prop 1 with interest will cost CA taxpayers $14.4 billion or $360 million pe...
