Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Mother's day of action against building burning
Submitted by Laura Olah <info@cswab.org>


CHILDREN are affected most by air emissions from open burning of military wastes – take a few minutes to make a difference!

Tomorrow (MAY 6) is a national call-in day to stop proposals by the U.S. military to open burn hundreds of contaminated buildings. If approved by EPA, the burns will result in the uncontrolled release of PCBs, dioxins, and other toxins to the environment – placing children at increased risk for serious health effects. On behalf of children's environmental health, please join us in participating in this national call-in day:

May 6, Friday. ALL DAY – Nationwide!

Call the EPA in DC and ask them to OPPOSE exemptions allowing the military to burn PCBs at Badger Army Ammunition Plant and other U.S. military bases.

Phone EPA at 202-564-4711
