Banning Aerial Herbicide Spraying

Freedom from Aerial Herbicides Alliance (FAHA) has drafted a charter amendment to ban the aerial spraying of herbicides in Lane County, Oregon. But it doesn’t stop there. Citizens of Lane County (and counties across Oregon) are often pre-empted from being able to protect their community.  Corporate lobby groups, such as Oregonians for Food And Shelter,  push corporate-written legislation that takes power away from the People.
So Our Community Our Rights has drafted a charter amendment to end that corporate pre-emption in OregonA Right of Local, Community Self-Government, which will help secure the citizens right to enforce the aerial spray ban, once it’s passed.

We are collecting signatures RIGHT NOW  for both Charter Amendments! We’re aiming for the 2017 ballot.

BOTH amendments must pass to help secure the People’s Right to protect themselves, and their communities from aerial herbicide spraying.

Our work draws on the assistance of The Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF), which works with communities throughout the country to protect the health, safety, and welfare of their residents and the natural environment, and to establish environmental and economic sustainability.
