GROUPS CALL ON BUSH
TO HALT ASSAULT
ON THE ENVIRONMENT
Local citizens joined the environmental community, Sen. Joseph Lieberman (D-CT), House minority leader Rep. Dick Gephardt (D-MO) and other members of Congress at a rally to demand that President Bush stop his current assault on public health and environmental protections.
In just two months in office, President Bush has eliminated, or indicated that he will eliminate, health and environmental protections ranging from limits on arsenic in drinking water to carbon dioxide emissions. He has also proposed new policies that would be environmentally destructive, such as opening the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, national forests, monuments, and other public lands to oil and gas exploration.
Three Americans who represent the millions who will be directly impacted by these policies shared their stories and outrage with President Bush putting special interests before the public interest.
Taking part in the rally were: American Oceans Campaign, Defenders Of Wildlife, Earthjustice Legal Defense Fund, Endangered Species Coalition, Environmental Defense, Greenpeace, National Environmental Trust, Physicians For Social Responsibility, Sierra Club, The Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance, The Wilderness Society, 20/20 Vision Education Fund, U.S. Public Interest Research Group.
