One of the results of the “Occupy” movement that we saw so much of a couple of years ago has been spinning off groups that are specializing in aspects of life in their own communities.
If Democracy is a homegrown activity, Newport and surrounding areas appear to have planted some seeds. Former Occupy activists have now targeted specific causes to present to the community and to enlist community support to do something about them.
In order to reach out to the community – to be more visible and clear as to what is exactly on their minds – a group of Newport area residents has formed CSALT – Citizens Seeking Alternatives to Log Terminals. To be sure CSALT is tackling other issues as well related to economic development and especially as it relates to the environment which they say is obviously under serious attack from humankind’s endless spewing of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere which are also taken up in the Earth’s oceans and causing damage there too.
To cover these and other heady issues, CSALT now has a new website and periodic newsletters to the community revealing just what their group is up to.
Here’s their latest newsletter. Just click here.
