“I think that it is conceivable that we could wake up and we could have activists controlling literally the local level in a way that we've never seen before. With that power, we'd have the sovereignty to pass legislation that really fundamentally affects people's lives.” – Micah White, Occupy activist, in an interview with NPR
Fed up with how big corporations are interfering in local politics, in ways that strip cities and states of their right to local control?
Tired of local officials saying NO to your right to pass local pesticide bans, to ban fracking, to reject the construction of factory farms, and to protect local water supplies from pollution, and local organic farmland from contamination caused by drifting GMO seeds and pesticides?
You may already be working in your city or your state. On a critical environmental or food and farming issue. Or maybe you're working to elect new candidates who will serve you and your community, not some corporation.
But if you’re still looking for a way to get involved—and have fun doing it—plug into our #Resist & #Regenerate Movement.
