Citizens For Marlboro County took
their voices to Columbia, SC, on March 5th in protest of
the MRR Southern, LLC proposed MEGA-DUMP in the Wallace
area of their county. Over seventy people of all races
came together for this event. Prepared statements were
read in protest of how South Carolinas leaders have
"opened their arms" to the waste industry. Some
statements asked Governor Mark Sanford and the South
Carolina General Assembly to change the laws concerning
landfills in South Carolina.
Citizens for Marlboro County trip to
Columbia on March 5, 2008
Citizens For Marlboro County was organized in 2004 by a small
group of citizens concerned about the future of Marlboro County
and its citizens. What started out as a small group is now turned
into a large to enormous gathering of all races to try to change
the "bleak face" of Marlboro.
One of their recent accomplishments was to join Blue Ridge
Environmental Defense League(BREDL) to fight against a proposed
MEGADUMP in Marlboro. Landfills and MEGADUMPS are potential
health hazards which destroy our land and fresh water supply.
Once they are contaminated, they are contaminated FOREVER!
Join the Citizens For Marlboro County that took the time to
educate themselves on these dangerous health hazards.
JOIN THE FIGHT!
