At this awareness-raising event, Thomas Linzey will speak about his legal work on the ground in local communities in his fight to protect them against serious harm from activities like fly ash pits, toxic hog farms, fracking, dumping of sewage, try to fight back but lose in the courts against corporate rights again and again.  These towns often become cancer clusters due to the amount of toxic waste dumped on their land and water.  Thomas Linzey and CELDF are a group of attorneys who mobilize in legal battles against skewed corporate rights that rob communities of their ability to guard clean air, land and water.  Now, after years of success, oil companies have attacked Thomas and CELDF and the court sided with them and sanctioned Thomas.  This set a dangerous precedent suggesting that it can be deemed illegal to represent communities that are asking for protection from corporate crimes.
