We're gonna keep on making noise

This week saw a bit a progress on bringing to the Nation's attention the problem with the government walking away from the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill Re-Opener Claim.  

Professor Rick Steiner, a long-time advocate on behalf of Prince William Sound regarding, acting as a private citizen, has petitioned the court regarding its lack of allowing public comment and consultation, and to reconsider the narrowly defined interpretation of the Restoration Plan as outlined under the Re-Opener provision.  (See our campaign page to read full petition - EVOS Petition 11/5/15)

Our efforts are starting to be heard by a wider audience with the article appearing in Seafood News.com:  http://seafoodnews.com/Story/997212/Advocates-Seek-11th-Hour-Reversal-On-Exxon-Valdez-Reopener-Decision

We have less than a year to urge the Government to fulfill their civic responsibility and fully respond to this issue.  July 2016 is our deadline for action.
