COME TO THE 1ST NATIONAL CONFERENCE ON PRECAUTION JUNE 9-11
[Rachel's introduction: On to Baltimore! Big, important conference scheduled for June 9-11. A decade of struggle by environmental justice and toxics activists thrust the precautionary principle into the spotlight. Now the U.S. Chamber of Commerce formally opposes it. The Bush Administration hates it. The American Chemistry Council denounces it. Yet it's spreading like the wind, spilling over into land-use, sprawl, housing, and control of local economies for the benefit of local people. Who knows where this could end? On to Baltimore!]
