This evening, June 10th, members of Katuah Earth First, in coordination with neighborhood activists, will be confronting the Chattanooga City council and demanding that plans to build a Wal-Mart on some of the town's last green space and wet lands be scrapped.

Please take a few seconds and send a fax, an e-mail, or make a phone call in their support. We appreciate all the solidarity we have received so far.
If you are in the Chattanooga area, show up and support us!
Please post this call far and wide. Write your own message, or paste the suggested message below, or a portion of it. Those who will, please copy email@example.com so we can estimate the support generated.
City Council (423) 757-5196 or Fax (423) 757-4857.
Representative Ron Littlefield firstname.lastname@example.org or (423) 757-5196.
Mayor Bob Corker (423) 757-5152 Mayor@mail.chattanooga.gov
Corker Group Telephone (423) 757-5152 Mayor@mail.chattanooga.gov

Because plans for the new Wal-Mart, in the Brainerd area of Chattanooga, call for the store to be built on some of the last green space and wetlands in the area, we insist that these plans be scrapped.
Because the green space in question is of historical interest to our Native American brothers and sisters, who were harmed by the criminal governmental policies known as the Trail of Tears, in solidarity with them we demand that these plans be scrapped.
Because Wal-Mart has a history of discrimination on the basis of gender, in solidarity with our working class sisters, we demand that this store not be built.
Because area citizens made their wishes known long ago via the Imagine Eastgate plan, in the name of community autonomy and democracy, we demand that this store not be built.
Because Wal-Mart has a history of paying it’s employees low wages and offering exceptionally poor benefits, and in light of the fact that such policies have the effect of driving down wage rates for the entire surrounding area, we demand that this store not be built.
Because Wal-Mart has a history of evading legal requirements to provide overtime pay to it’s employees who are required to work such schedules, in solidarity with all working class people, we demand that this store not be built.
Because nationwide Wal-Mart has a history of employing the reprehensible practice of “disposable real estate,” building a new store only to abandon another one, and because this is likely to be done in the Chattanooga area, we demand that this store not be built.
After full consideration of all aspects of the question, in the best interests of the earth, and of the people who inhabit it, we demand that this store not be built!
