Campaign Against Novato/Petaluma Landfill Expansion - Endorsed by Marin GP Council - David Quinley see http://cagreens.org/marin/ Marin and Sonoma Activists Please alert you members, networks and personal lists to this important upcoming Town Hall / Potluck presentation. Residents of Marin and Sonoma are facing serious environmental threats because of unbridled greed and an un-precedented media campaign to mislead the public about our local "DUMP". A major root cause of our local and national problems stem from over consumption, waste and reckless energy use and policies. Find out how you can begin to change the national direction by acting locally. Please join us. Mon., February 12, 6:00 / 7:30 (potluck / presentation) The Dump Crises in Marin: MPJC – TownHall / PotluckSue Brown and Bruce Baum of No Wetlands Landfill Expansion, will lead a discussion and present a short video on the landfill crises in Marin titled "Tale of Two Dumps". Why citizens have to be outraged by what our Marin County government is allowing. The urgency of the situation, and a call to action. Expansion of the landfill will turn it into a state regional dump to increase Waste Management, Inc.'s big corporate profits. It will result in a substantial increase of large truck traffic on highway 101 and increase the risk of degrading surrounding wetlands as well as air and odor pollution throughout Novato and surrounding areas. MAJOR PROBLEMS WITH DUMP EXPANSION • Owners Want Approval to Turn Redwood Landfill into a Large Regional Dump. • Landfill Expansion Will Increase Big Truck Congestion and Pollution on Highway 101. • Located in a Highly Sensitive Ecosystem. The Petaluma Marsh • Run by a Huge Corporation with a Checkered Environmental Past whose Motive is Profit. First United Methodist Church, 9 Ross Valley Dr., San Rafael. Come join us for a potluck and informative town hall discussion. No time to prepare something for the potluck? Come anyway and learn about this important crisis in Marin. -- Jim Geraghty aka Jimmy Justice Fishbob JimBob and a few others i can't mention in a "G" Rated email Marin Peace and Justice Coalition http://mpjc.org Fishbob Micro Films http://fishbob-micro-films.blip.tv/ Peace and Justice Buttons http://peaceandjusticebuttons.com Marin Green Party County Council http://cagreens.org/marin/ Marin Green's Blog http://maringreenparty.blogspot.com/ NOTICE: Due to Presidential Executive Orders, the National Security Agency may have read this email without warning, warrant, or notice.
