The National Network In Action, a civil and human rights organization will hold a press conference to encourage The Fresno City Panning Commission to keep denying Cottonwood Creek's permit to reinstate their operation in West Fresno.

Rev. Floyd D. Harris Jr, the National President of NNIA, local Pastors and other Concern citizens will speak to ongoing problem that led to West Fresno being the breeding ground for hazardous waste companies in the last 50 years.

These businesses in West Fresno has polluted the breathing air in the lowest income poverty community in the city of Fresno. Cottonwood Creek CWC may have possibly processed hazardous waste material generated by local cheese and dairy manufacturing industries. This business may have used chemicals and bacteria, which may have released intolerable amounts of offensive, noxious odor into the air. The odor continues to cover entire West Fresno neighborhoods causing residents and employees who work near the business to become sick. The West Fresno Community has suffered long enough form Darling International stinking up our air for over 50 years!

Cotton Wood Creek's Conditional use Permit has been REVOKED and now CWC has appealed to reinstate of their operations to the Fresno City Planning Commission. The Hearing will be held on Wednesday December 17,2008 at 6:00 pm. at the Fresno City Hall, Second Floor, City Council Chamber, 2600 Fresno Street, Fresno.


It our belief that Fresno must comply with one of the most important international conventions which states that each human being is entitled to a clean environment. That declaration, signed in Stockholm Declaration in 1982 states: "Man has a fundamental right to live in a appropriate conditions and live in a good healthy environment"
