Banning Aerial Herbicide Spraying

Freedom from Aerial Herbicides Alliance (FAHA) has submitted to the County,  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 submitted 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.

 

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

Both amendments are now in the Judicial System,
we’re all waiting for the decision.

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.
