Rachel's Precaution Reporter #22, January 25, 2006


[Rachel's introduction: Now you can explain the precautionary principle to your neighbors or your church group, using this simple, clear slide show, which you can grab off the web free of charge.]

A classy, free PowerPoint slide show is now available and it has everything you need to put on a show for your neighbors or your church, including a script that you can read while showing the slides.

It was prepared by the Center for Health, Environment & Justice (CHEJ -- Lois Gibbs's group in Falls Church, Va.; Tel. 703-237-2249; and see http://www.chej.org/ and http://www.besafenet.com/).

The slide show is available on the web in 7 parts. The slides themselves are available in two forms -- as PowerPoint, and in Microsoft Word so you can take them to a photocopy shop and get them copied onto acetate overheads if you want them in that format.

The slide show is also available on a CD from CHEJ: Tel. 703-237-2249.

This is a FABULOUS resource. --Peter Montague
