E-M:/ TONIGHT - Bill Moyers Special on the Chemical Industry

Enviro-Mich message from Tracey Easthope <tracey@ecocenter.org>

Reminder -
Watch the Moyer's special tonight!! Early reviews of the show suggest it is a
devastating indictment of the chemical industry.  Dow Chemical activities
will be among those highlighted.  In the '70's, European scientists found that
>vinyl chloride caused cancer in rats and might possibly be taken to 
>the human brain in body fats. "Determined to keep it secret," Moyers 
>reports, Conoco, B.F. Goodrich,
>Shell, Dow Chemical and Union Carbide signed a secrecy agreement about
>their findings."

The Ecology Center will try to highlight some documents related to 
recent Dow activities on its web site tomorrow.

There will be a viewing event in Detroit at McCarthy's 1600 W. Fort, 
just south of Trumbell.  Their telephone number is (313) 496-0626 
(organized by Pam Ortner  (810) 294-0770.)
Also, Ann Arbor will be holding a viewing event on Monday night, March 26.
at Leopold Brothers, 523 South Main Street starting at 8 pm.
