Foxconn actions

Several Wisconsin organizations are continuing to resist the Foxconn. As the pricetag, in money and environmental and social costs, continues to climb, more people are waking to the true price of this terrible deal (except for select Scott Walker donors, apparently).

Recently, Midwest Environmental Advocates filed suit to challenge Wisconsin DNR's approval of Foxconn plans to suck 7 million gallons of Lake Michigan water per day.

The Wisconsin Democratic Party Progressive Caucus has put out the following alerts. If you are able to help and if you can help spread the word, please do. The immediate need is support for the citizens of Mt Pleasant, where the village is using eminent domain laws to remove people from their homes for Foxconn and related development. If you have questions, please contact Rev John Stanley.
The Village of Mt. Pleasant is holding the final hearing to decide whether they should blight residential areas, abuse eminent domain, and evict Wisconsinites from their homes. The Village Board meets MONDAY June 4th at 6:30 in Mt. Pleasant at the Village Hall, 8811 Campus Drive. In talking with the homeowners we learned they are facing this Goliath alone, there have NOT been people showing up to speak against their suffering. This changes now. Please, spread the word!
We need as many people to show up as humanly possible on such short notice! We have an event page posted on Facebook. At 5 pm TODAY (June 3) there is an organizing conference call. Phone 1-213-603-9096 you will be prompted to enter the conference code, 14571302#. 
In addition, we need people to write letters to the editor and continue to spread the word about Foxconn.
