Next ICDP Meeting on Oct. 6

Imagine what it must be like to know that your children could be harmed by the soil in your back yard. It's happening nearby and most Isabella County residents don't know anything about it because the Dow Chemical Company has been working hard to keep you from finding out. The ICDP monthly meeting next Thursday, Oct. 6 at 7 p.m. is a follow-up from our July meeting where a 3-person panel dissected some little known facts about our anti-environmental Congressman Dave Camp AKA Dioxin Dave.

Terry Miller and Michelle Hurd Riddick of the Lone Tree Council will be our guests to tell us about the battle of residents along the Tittabawasse River to get Dow to acknowledge their responsibility to clean up the contamination of their properties of dioxins. We will be introducing their presentation with a segment of "The Long Shadow," the 2003 documentary film by Steve Meador, which Dow Chemical has attempted to suppress. See how Dow did that here: http://counterpunch.org/mckenna04182005.html You may also wish to see the July archives of our blog at http://tinyurl.com/czyye paying particular attention to the one on July 10.

We promise this will be a meeting like the July one that folks will talk about for some time. For more information, you may also wish to see http://www.trwnews.net/, the Tittabawassee River Watch web site that details the situation in our neighboring counties to the east.
