From Lincoln County Community Rights/Citizens for a Healthy County:
Lincoln County Community Rights and its allied organization Citizens for a Healthy County, are proud to present: “Drift: A Community Seeking Justice” a short film created by University of Oregon students about the Gold Beach accident involving herbicide spray of a neighborhood. A screening of “Drift” will be held Thursday, August 27th, 6:30pm, at the Central Lincoln PUD Public Meeting Room 2129, North Coast Hwy 101, (across from Safeway) Newport. This is a fund raiser event for Citizens for a Healthy County. This group has filed a local initiative to ban Aerial spraying in Lincoln County.
This event will have several speakers that will discuss the harm inflicted on the community of Gold Beach in October of 2013 and what we can do about it. The public will also be invited to discuss how aerial pesticide spraying has affected the lives of your family, friends and neighbors. Come join us and learn how citizens are using local lawmaking to exercise our right against involuntary poisoning by industrial logging practices. Industrial logging cuts ten times more timber in Oregon’s coast range than the Forest Service and douses every clear cut with toxic herbicides that can affect wildlife, humans, and water sources.
Citizens for a Healthy County is seeking to change this harmful practice in Lincoln County by a Citizen Initiative filed July 6, 2015. This initiative has been challenged and we need money to make sure this important ballot measure gets to the voters. This event is free to the public but donations to assist in support of the initiative are urgently needed. Contact Citizens for a Healthy County by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone 541.961.6385.
