Two urgent actions with which to conclude today’s flood of articles. The first, in California, comes from the United Farm Workers. They’re fighting to give 200 families access to water, from a pipeline that could serve them well, but which the Department of Fish and Game refuses to make available. Write to Schwarzenegger’s bureaucrats and give em hell.
In the Philippines meanwhile, sharecroppers are being killed for standing up for their rights. The folk at Via Campesina and Fian wouldn’t send out this action alert if it weren’t likely to make a difference. So visit this site to learn more, and then mail off a letter or two to the Philippines.
