E-M:/ Important TUESDAY TV show on Oil Wastes



-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Enviro-Mich message from asagady@sojourn.com
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here is an alert from the National Oil Refinery Action Network
concerning an important TV news event on Tuesday.....the 
story will depict, among other things, serious hydrogen sulfide 
problems at this site.    Network TV rarely tells the story effectively
of environmental struggles at sites, but this Ed Bradley special
promises to be different.   Time magazine is calling it one of the
ten best TV specials this season.

Michigan activists working on oil/gas issues in the northcountry
will especially want to watch this program.   Issues of the 
deposition of oil drilling muds, spills, sour gas venting and other wastes
are just
as germaine in Michigan as they are down south.   (note the 
recent coverage of Michigan sour gas venting in the Houston Chronicle).

Ann Hunt and Michigan Land Use Institute...will you please help spread the
word???

ED BRADLEY--ON ASSIGNMENT--RIPS BARE THE GREED OF OIL COMPANIES IN DUMPING
OIL FIELD WASTES-
 GOVERNMENT "SWEETHEART DEALS" WITH BIG OIL TO EXEMPT WASTES FROM LAWS
EXPOSED!!!

Be sure to watch or even better get your group, family and firends together
for a house meeting/party to watch it together, use it as an opportunity to
educate your neighbors.  This is just one of countless examples of how big
oil and our government abuse the environmental and human rights of people
who live near there operations!  The oil industry enjoys many exemptions
from laws that cover other industries.
Let' s mame 1998 the year we turn this around.

Enclosed below is EPA head Browner calling for end to exemption--You can
see from this example that if we work with the media to expose oil industry
abuse, we can make progress.

In the absence of "common sense initiatives" that address the real problems
caused by the oil industry, grassroots action will continue to deliver
justice!

The CBS Special on this will be TUESDAY-TOMORROW --on the 23th of Dec. 1997
at 10 pm EASTERN.
