51 HOUR CONTINUOUS VIGIL TO BE HELD AT NC GENERAL ASSEMBLY

PRESS CONFERENCE SCHEDULED

JUNE 20th 2007

The largest collation of environmental grass roots organizations ever assembled in North Carolina will conduct a Press Conference at 10:00 am on June 20th, 2007 at the Halifax Mall. The Halifax Mall is located between the two Legislative Office Buildings in Raleigh North Carolina.

The Press Conference will announce the purpose of a 51 Hour Vigil that will be taking place throughout the day and night at the Halifax Mall between 3:00 pm Tuesday, June 19, 2007 and 6:00 pm Thursday, June 21, 2007.

Representatives of community and environmental groups from across the state of North Carolina will be in the Halifax Mall for 51 straight hours, ONE HOUR for each day the members of the General Assembly are expected to be in session during 2007. The purpose of the vigil is to spotlight the issue of hog waste and the direct adverse impacts it is having on our rivers, streams, creeks, air AND PEOPLE. Educational materials and displays, including the airing of video documentaries, will be used to communicate these devastating impacts. Vigil participants will make frequent visits to members of the General Assembly.

2007 is the year the General Assembly must legislate a ban on new construction of lagoons and sprayfileds, set a "Date Certain" for completion of phase out of their use, commence their phase out and provide appropriate safe drinking water for citizens who have been impacted by groundwater pollution. The Bernard Allen Clean Water Bill will do just that.

Hog waste issues must be fully resolved this year. The citizens of North Carolina are fed up with excuses and delays.
