Last Wednesday on November 16, all of Team Marine and SSA (Samohi Solar Alliance) went to the Fairview Santa Monica Main library to learn about human rights against big cooperations. Many big companies come and propose harmful extraction projects like fracking which is digging holes deep underground and pumping tons of water and chemicals to get minerals. This process contaminates our water, loosens up the soil which results in more catastrophic earthquakes. The two speakers proposed to make balance sheets (negotiating with the big companies to have environmental practices), and corporate models (having the company provide their data prior to construction).
A similar discussion about a Sustainable Bill of Rights is occurring tomorrow November 29, (6:30-8:00) at SMC room HSS 165. Mark Gold founder of Heal the Bay will be presenting among many other educated speakers. Learn about your rights this Wednesday because companies have more rights than the people living in the area do.
