Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Lawsuit on Philippine Bases
Suit revives toxic waste scourge

TWO ENVIRONMENTAL groups that have worked for over a decade to get the
U.S. government to clean up toxic waste sites at former U.S. military
bases in the Philippines, are pinning their hopes on the Ninth Circuit
Court of Appeals in San Francisco to address the long-standing problem. 

After a court hearing last week, representatives of Arc Ecology and the
Filipino American Coalition for Environmental Solutions (Faces)
expressed confidence that the issue would be resolved within two months. 

The two groups are working with Philippine non-governmental
organizations (NGOs) to urge the U.S. to clean up toxic waste they
believe to be caused by the U.S. military in the former Subic Bay Naval
Base and Clark Airfield in the Philippines.
