So Your Community is Going to be Fracked, Mined, Sprayed, Factory Farmed, or fill in the blank…

RIGHTS BASED ORGANIZING  IS THE ANSWER!

From the Community Environmental Legal defense Fund (CELDF) website

together we can do so much...“Communities across the country, trying to stop a wide range of threats – such as fracking, spraying, mining, factory farming, sewage sludging, water privatization, coal shipments, unsustainable energy development, and genetically modified seeds – all run into the same problem: they don’t have the legal authority to say “no” to them.   The Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund organizes in communities facing such threats.  We’ve created this short video to share with you how a structure of law has developed that stands in the way of us saying “no” to harmful activities such as fracking, and prevents us from building sustainable food, energy, water, and other systems. It walks step-by-step through the barriers we face in our communities and what communities are doing – and what you can do – about it.”
