Organizer/AuthorBruce Connelley
The word is out. Certain legislators in Sacramento
are determined by any means to destroy the Delta
by moving legislation ahead to construct a water
conveyance system comparable to the Panama Canal
circumventing the fresh water flows into the Delta
which will surely nail the coffin closed for the greatest
estuary in the western hemisphere.

The corruption MUST stop. They have refused Delta stakeholders a voice in the process.(That includes our elected officials). It’s time to wake up the Governor and the Nation and expose this great tragedy! It’s time for the people to speak and have their voices heard. The drilling in
search of the best place to start the canal just below
Sacramento is about to get underway.

Therefore plans are in the works to bring the people
together to speak with one voice and demonstrate
to our lawmakers that we will not sit idly by and let
this destruction take place. We are planning a massive
flotilla up the Sacramento river to the Capitol to let
the Governor and the Legislators know they must
stop.
