In the central valley, oil wastewater, potentially filled with toxic chemicals, is being using to irrigate our food. Plans for the expansion of this practice are currently underway. There has been no comprehensive independent testing conducted to ensure these crops or the farmworkers who work with them are protected from the hundreds of chemicals used in oil operations, some of which have been shown to be carcinogenic and toxic. We're tired of being lab rats in an oil and gas experiment, so we're calling on Governor Brown and the State Water Board to end this practice immediately.
We'll be gathering on the north steps of the capitol to deliver our petition to Governor Brown. Join us!
