Action Alert: Demonstration at Steinberg's Office Against Fast Track Water Bill Package

A group of concerned people from Clarksburg, Walnut Grove, Sacramento and throughout northern California will be holding a peaceful protest at the office of Senate President pro Tem Darrell Steinberg at 1020 "N' Street in Sacramento on Friday, September 4 between 10:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. to protest the dangerous Delta water legislation that Steinberg is trying to ram through the State Capitol. Steinberg's office is located on the opposite side of the street from the south side of the State Capitol.

"We are alarmed at how the current package of five water bills is being pushed through the Legislature without consideration for the many concerns of Delta and northern California residents," said Barbara Daly, Delta farmland owner, of Save the Delta. "We are protesting the legislation's ceding of control of our water to only 7 political appointees on a governance committee that could approve the building of a peripheral canal."

Daly said the short notice is necessary due to her concern that Tuesday, September 8, the date that Steinberg is trying to have the package finalized, may be too late to save Delta farms and collapsing fish populations.

Please send this action alert to everybody you know. Please feel free to bring your own signs with messages such as "Stop Steinberg's Peripheral Canal," "Steinberg's Water Package Hurts Californians," "Stop Steinberg's $25 Billion Boondoggle Canal," and "No Peripheral Canal." Feel free to be creative. For more information about the protest, please call Barbara Daly at 916-761-4726.
