    Defeating agrochemical corporations is a local job since the feds and state are fully corporate themselves.

    I love your "feudal system" that gives local power. Here in our Oregon county we are having to wrest it way from our state and our county government has tried to fight it.

    However, we have won the right to get an initiative on the ballot which will declare the sovereignty of the people and then we can clean up the place where we live.

    solidarity!

      I'll have to create a google alert to follow your ballot initiative. This sounds important.  In fact, I should go look at how it is worded...

      Thanks very much for mentioning that.

        Here is a link to the ordinance that our county submitted.

        The group that has helped forward communities' efforts in this is the Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF)

        The Community Rights Movement started in PA and is in other states as well: New Hampshire, New Mexico, Oregon and Washington.

        Mainstream media is ignoring it of course.
