PROTESTING AN ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE CONFERENCE
Activists will gather June 8, 1994, at 8:30 a.m. at the headquarters of WMX Technologies, Inc. (formerly Waste Management, Inc.), 720 Butterfield Rd., Oak Brook, Illinois to protest a symposium WMX is sponsoring called "Environmental Justice: The Search for Balance." The welcoming speaker on the topic of "Environmental Justice" will be Dean Buntrock, chairman and CEO of WMX. According to Brenda Kenealy of WMX Technologies [(718) 572-8934] the confirmed keynote speaker is the Reverend Ben Chavis, executive director of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). No one at NAACP headquarters could confirm Mr. Chavis's participation for us.
