Earth Day Rally In Front of U.S Representative Fred Upton’s Office In Kalamazoo

Kalamazoo (Majyck Radio)- Over 60 residents of Southwest Michigan gathered in front of U.S. Representative Fred Upton’s Kalamazoo district office to celebrate Earth Day 2013. A variety of locally elected officials and environmentalists urged Upton, the very powerful Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, to promote a new sustainable energy plan for the U.S. and abandon the disasterous policies of subsidizing giant fossil fuel and nuclear energy corporations.

Upton’s 6th Congressional district is home to the most dangerous nuclear power plant in the country, Palisades, and is close to the site of the worst on land oil spill, the ENBRIDGE spill, which pumped over one million gallons of toxic Canadian tar sands crude into the Kalamazoo River.  Coincidentally, huge fossil fuel and nuclear corporations are the biggest contributors to Rep. Upton’s campaign coffers.
