The meeting in Pittsburgh Oct. 1 (see RHWN #96) was called to plan direct actions to stop pollution, to strengthen democracy at the local level, to build the grass roots toxics movement. It brought 18 people together from across the country to describe their local situations, to dream strategies and tactics for a different future, to begin something new for the toxics movement. The meeting was called by Richard Grossman, editor of the WRENCHING DEBATE GAZETTE.
The next Wrench meeting will happen Dec. 3 and 4 near Wichita,
KS, starting at 10 a.m. at Spear's Restaurant, 239 West Greenway,
in Derby, KS; the phone there is (316) 788-5517. On the 3rd, the
group plans a non-violent demonstration against local chemical
poisoners, to observe the 4th anniversary of the Bhopal massacre.
The Wrench group is growing, and everyone is welcome. Probably
the key agenda item will be: what's next? For more information,
phone Lauri Maddy at (316) 776-0921 or Donna Hinderliter at (316)
524-5719, both in Kansas, or Richard Grossman at (202) 387-1000.
