Newsflash: Judge Karsten Rasmussen has just issued his decision that Lane County voters will not be able to vote to ban the aerial spraying of herbicides.
Is anyone really surprised?
Aren’t we all increasingly aware that corporations (including the timber industry) own our state and federal legislatures and regulatory agencies?
Isn’t it then entirely predictable that a political actor like Rasmussen would rule in favor of the prevailing powerbrokers?
Here’s the real newsflash: We the People must take serious action to legalize our right to write and pass laws to protect ourselves over corporate “rights” to poison, pollute, and extract us into extinction.
This is entirely up to you and me. Get involved with Community Rights Lane County and Freedom from Aerial Herbicides Alliance.
