Union County, NC
Group Against Sheaffers Pollution has waged a multi-faceted campaign against the Town of Marshvilles and Sheaffer Internationals plan to construct and operate an experimental waste treatment facility. Serving Marshville and a Pilgrims Pride intensive poultry operation, the facility would rely on the spraying of human and poultry waste on farmland. GASPs campaign has included legal action to challenge the faulty permit and deceptive buffer agreements, creative radio and newspaper ads, turnout to town meetings and hearings, public records requests under the North Carolina statute, researching and spotlighting the companys abysmal track record in Virginia, and rallies and parades. The centerpiece of one parade was a float showcasing an outhouse representing Sheaffers new technology. The chapter has used signs effectively: one read Gasp now so you can breathe later.
