The International Paper Company’s plan to conduct a test tire burn in the boiler of its Ticonderoga, NY plant continues to lumber toward its scheduled November 6th start date. We Vermonters have just a few weeks left to preserve our inalienable commonwealth rights to clean air.
The good news is that People for Less Pollution is holding a massive rally on the town green in Middlebury, Vermont this Saturday the 21st from Noon to 3:00pm.
If you’re anywhere within breathing distance, please come out and show your support for a healthy atmosphere. A big crowd will send a big message to the would-be polluters at International Paper. There will be food, live music, theater from Bread and Puppet, appearances by Bill McKibben, Senator Jim Jeffords, and others, and a lot more. (Who says you can have fun saving the world?).
