Occupy This: Rally for Pesticide Justice
Beginning at noon Saturday July 7th at the Wayne Morse Free Speech Plaza, Pitchfork Rebellion and Occupy Triangle Lake are staging a rally to call for an immediate end to the aerial spraying of timber industry pesticides near homes and schools.
Recent studies found that nearly everyone that lives in Oregon has timber industry pesticide in their urine. Also, pesticides can be carried in the wind up to 20 miles from locations subject to aerial spraying. Triangle Lake residents live amidst the clear-cuts and have the highest levels, but all of us are getting it in the air we breathe, according to a recent study.
There will be Sol Seed playing Reggae music and several speakers including Day Owen and Roy Keene. Day Owen speaks on “Monsanto Sucks” and Roy exposes “Weyerhaeuser and its crimes against our forests.” The rally will end about 4:20 PM.
