Dear Committee, (Could someone get this to Mary and Tim) and others out

As I remember the final meeting of the committee in Newport, Mary was going
to (with the Help of Bill) get to us via the Greenyes list- serve, a less
than four page introduction and sumary of the three messages.
Zero Waste
Create Jobs
End Corporate welfare for Wasting Resources

As requested I called each National Committee and asked if they would
consider our issues and each politely said that the platform was still open.

When we get the write up the next step is to find your local delegates and
ask them to support these three issues as part of a sustainable planet

The Goal at this point is to sign as many of us on the listserve as possible
and write or call to convince local delegates to the conventions to say yes
to the environment and support a plank that includes; the objectives of
Zero Waste by 2010, Creating Jobs from discards, and Ending Corporate
Welfare for wasting resources by not subsidizing resource depletion and
supporting recycling.
