Hi, AfDers and friends,                          Facebook:  Like Nestle fights on in Cascade Locks; so do we | Dirty Energy , Dirty Money on Facebook

Nestle should have gotten the message when 69% of voters in Hood River County supported a ballot measure to effectively shut them out of using the waters of Cascade Locks for their profit making bottling plant.  Instead they still want to move  forward.

You can help stop them but you have to act now. 

Below is the most recent message from the Local Water Alliance which wrote and ran the initiative campaign.

Also below is reminder of the Alliance for Democracy co-sponsored DIRTY ENENGY and DIRTY MONEY event focused on

needs your help NOW!

Local Water Alliance

Thank you so much for supporting the Hood River County Water Protection Measure campaign. Now that the election is over and an incredible 69% of Hood River County voters have voiced their opinion in favor of the Water Protection Measure, it's time to ensure that the voter-backed measure is upheld.

Unfortunately, we have already learned that the Cascade Locks Port and City Council are considering legal challenges to overturn the overwhelming results of this democratic vote.

In addition, Curt Melcher, Director of Oregon Fish and Wildlife (ODFW), continues to move forward with the water exchange application, which can still leave open the door to Nestlé’s proposed water bottling operation. ODFW’s action shows blatant disregard for voters’ overwhelming support of the Hood River County Water Protection Measure.

Our work to protect public water is not over, and we need your help now.

Contact Governor Kate Brown and urge her to respect the will of voters and the Confederated tribes of Warm Springs, Umatilla, and Yakama. The Governor deserves credit for reversing the ODFW’s attempt to transfer state water rights from Oxbow Springs to the City of Cascade Locks for Nestlé’s benefit without a public-interest test. But with Hood River County’s landslide vote against industrial-scale bottled water operations, it is now time for Governor Brown to end years of additional legal battles and make clear that Oxbow Springs water will not be traded away to Nestlé.

Please take action today and ask Governor Brown to respect the will of the voters and to advise ODFW to retract the water exchange application since it will lead to an activity that, as of now, is illegal in Hood River County.
