Invite to Bloomington
As follow-up to my last posting:
Bloomington is about an hour's drive south of Indianapolis. If anyone
attending the international dioxin conference in Indy in late August would
like a tour of the Bloomington contamination situation or to meet
local activists working toward a safe, sane cleanup, I would be happy to
arrange for a side trip to Bloomington for you.
The conference, though arranged by I.U. conference bureau and chaired by
Ron Hites (mentioned in my last posting) is rather alien to our situation
here. The cost is prohibitive and it appears to have a
government/academic rather than citizen orientation. We try to glean what
we can from these kinds of technical research (such as Jacobsen's
follow-up on development of children born to women who ate Lake Michigan
fish during pregnancy).
If there are any presenters or attendees at the conference who feel they
might have something to offer a struggling community or grassroots
activists who are just interested and might share the same kinds of
concerns, I would be happy to hear from you.
