E-M:/ NJ Env. Justice decision may have relevance in Michigan

Folks:

>From New Jersey comes word of a landmark decision by a federal judge on a
cement kiln that is polluting an impoverished area of Camden -- the Judge
found it to violate federal Civil Rights laws.  Since Michigan environmental
and community activists have fought this same fight without success so far,
let us hope this means a corner may be turned on environmental justice
issues.
