|Michele Roberts Representing!|
As a proposal is floated to make Mississippi a radioactive waste repository and the good people of Mossville struggle to attain a fair relocation agreement with Sasol, the South African chemical processor, which will mean the physical end of almost 150 years of free black people living and working in the community their ancestors founded at the end of the Civil War, and uranium mining is being proposed for West Virginia (I could go on and on here) we have to recognize that communities of color and poor communities are the least protected but frequently the most unified in seeking solutions that will protect their land, their health, their very lives.
I don't have a sign on me but hopefully today I'll be able to march next to Michele and her sign declaring, STOP ENVIRONMENTAL RACISM NOW!
Check back in. I'll be live blogging from my phone, in the rain, at the Lincoln Memorial.
