7/10/2013 12:01:00 AM Rally for Great Lakes planned for July 14
The Michigan Land Use Institute (MLUI) and TC350, a dedicated group of local activists, are organizing "Oil & Water Don't Mix: A Rally for the Great Lakes," a rally set for July 14 at the Bridge View Park in St. Ignace next to the Mackinac Bridge. It's an incredible opportunity to raise awareness about climate change and the dangers posed by an oil pipeline that runs through the Mackinac Straits.
Join MLUI and TC350 at the rally, set for 12 p.m.-1:30 p.m. on Sunday, July 14. This rally is gaining a lot of attention, and a number of other leading environmental organizations are joining with us to carry forward this fight-- National Wildlife Federation, Michigan Environmental Council, Sierra Club, and others. Even Bill McKibben himself, one of the nation's foremost environmentalists and co-founder of 350.org, will be at the rally.
The rally also will feature Beth Wallace, author of the NWF report, "Sunken Hazard," which expertly presents the threat; a citizen's group fighting the pet coke piles in Detroit; citizens affected by the Enbridge oil spill in Kalamazoo; and Great Lakes author Jerry Dennis.
