4/17/14 Media Advisory: Hassig Visits Enbridge St. Lawrence Gas in Massena to Speak Out Against Fracking

Hassig Visits Enbridge St. Lawrence Gas in Massena to Speak Out Against Fracking

Thursday, April 17, 2014, 3:30 PM

Enbridge St. Lawrence Gas, Stearns Street, Massena, NY USA

Enbridge Corporation is a major seller of natural gas. It is
expanding its capacity to sell gas by constructing numerous pipelines.
Selling natural gas provides funds for fracking gas wells. Enbridge
is part of fracking.

I have examined information on the subject of the environmental
impacts of hydro fracking. I have concluded that hydro fracking is a
heavily polluting activity that should not be allowed to continue. I
will be at the Enbridge St. Lawrence Gas office in Massena to make my
opposition to hydro fracking know. I am hopeful that my good example
will inspire others to speak out against fracking.

4/17/14 Media Advisory: Free Speech for Earth

Free Speech for Earth

Thursday, April 17, 2014, 11:00 AM-12:00 PM

Outdoor Plaza South of Barrington Student Union, Potsdam College,
Potsdam, NY USA

“April is Earth Month. This is a most wonderful time for speaking and
dancing freely to bring environmental revolution. I believe that
Americans are beginning to awaken to the need to protect our Earth
Mother. Climate change, fracking, tar sands, the Keystone XL
pipeline, all of these assaults upon Earth are sparking little fires
of concern for the survival of the inhabitants of this planet. I am
for making all of our little fires into one very large fire of human
desire to protect our Mother. I am an environmental
revolutionary.”-Donald L. Hassig

Green Hassig Town Hall Conference Call on Creating Government Accountability

Wednesday, April 16, 2014, from 8:30-9:30 PM

dial-in number: 712 432 0140
participant access code: 141527#

For background information on the subject of government accountability
in matters of public health messaging please visit the website named
below.

http://nysdohcancerpreventionfailure.wordpress.com/

This conference call is for talking about creating government
accountability. I want to create government accountability in all
matters of governance. I have a wonderful record on working to create
government accountability. If voters want government accountability,
I’m their man.

“I have worked for decades to create government accountability in
matters of environmental health protection. The federal government’s
public health entities: the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDCP), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Food
and Drug Administration (FDA), and the National Cancer Institute (NCI)
are working hand in hand with corporations to deceive the American
public about the damages to health that are caused by exposure to
pollutants. I have thought long and hard about how to hold government
accountable for these harmful deceptions. When I am a member of the
House of Representatives, I will create legislation that establishes
accountability by requiring transparency and responsiveness. Every
government employee will be bound by law to cooperate with citizens
who are interested in discussing government action. This means that
when a cancer activist requests an on-the-record discussion with an
EPA scientist who is responsible for PCB clean-up, the discussion
request is automatically granted. When hundreds of recorded
discussions such as this are amassed on the internet where everyone
can listen and hear for themselves the inability of the government
employees to answer the straightforward questions of cancer activists,
the day of government accountability will have arrived.”-Donald L.
Hassig

I want to talk with residents of NY-21 to get their ideas on how to
create government accountability. I am certain that putting all of
our ideas together we can figure this out and then get it done fast.
Government accountability will go a long ways to restoring an
honorable and good America.

4/10/14 News Release: “On to the Primary. Green Party Focus is on Environmental Protection Action.”

“On to the Primary. Green Party Focus is on Environmental Protection Action.”

Earlier today, I mailed my Designating Petition off to the NYS Board of Elections in Albany.  Now I can turn all of my attention to the June 24th primary election, which means taking action to protect the environment.

The Green Party voters that I have spoken with during the course of the past two months want action on environmental protection.  I have a long and strong history on environmental protection.  Environmental protection is my whole life.  It is my intention to proceed with environmental protection actions that will inspire fellow Americans to join together in a mass movement in opposition to hydro fracking and tar sands extraction.

I always told myself that if I had been alive when the buffalo were being slaughtered in the late 1800s, I would have done what I could to stop it.  The hydro fracking is an atrocity of similar proportions.  Tar sands exploitation is an atrocity of this scale.  “We will show the oil and gas corporations what it means to love the Earth and remember the buffalo.”-Donald L. Hassig

4/7/14 Media Advisory: Environmental Health Protection Candidate Asks St. Lawrence County Legislature When Dialogue on PCBs and POPs

Environmental Health Protection Candidate Asks St. Lawrence County
Legislature When Dialogue on PCBs and POPs

Monday, April 7, 2014, 7:00 PM

St. Lawrence County Courthouse, Legislative Board Room, Canton, NY USA

St. Lawrence County has a long history of PCB releases to the
environment.  Three industrial facilities in the Town of Massena used
and released PCBs for several decades before the substances were
banned in the 1970s.  Open waste burning creates and releases PCBs.
This source of PCB releases has been of major significance ever since
plastics became a large part of the waste stream.  A state wide ban on
open waste burning took effect in 2009.  The practice continues but at
a decreased level of activity.

Everyone in St. Lawrence County, everyone on Earth has a body burden
of PCBs and the other persistent organic pollutants (POPs).  Some of
the other well known POPs include:  dioxins, DDT, Mirex, Toxaphene and
brominated flame retardants.  The World Health Organization recommends
action to minimize the exposure that children receive to these
chemicals.  POPs exposure is linked to increased risk for diseases and
disorders, including:  cancer, diabetes, heart disease, autoimmune
disease, autism, ADHD, obesity, reproductive problems, cognitive
impairments and immune system dysfunction.

Minimizing exposure involves a simple, straightforward process of
education and decision making.  Providing the general public with
information on the damages to health that are associated with exposure
to POPs and making known the fact that POPs are contaminants of all
animal fats goes far to fulfill the educational component of this
process.  Educated people then have the opportunity to choose to
consume little or no animal fats.  In the case of flame retardants,
household and vehicle interior dust are significant sources of
exposure.  Regular cleaning addresses these sources.

“Earth Month 2014 is a great time to push forward with environmental
health protection.  When will the St. Lawrence County Legislature
enter into dialogue on the subjects of POPs body burden, disease risk
and exposure minimization with concerned residents of this county and
the Akwesasne Reserve?  There is much opportunity to improve public
health by taking action to minimize exposures.  The dialogue that we
seek is a promising avenue  to governmental action.  I believe that
the St. Lawrence County Public Health Department will someday soon set
about creating its own POPs exposure minimization educational
outreach.  Talking about PCBs and POPs is the place to start.”-Donald

4/8/14 News Release: Indian Time Bringing Out the Truth About PCB Exposure and Damages to Health at Akwesasne

Indian Time Bringing Out the Truth About PCB Exposure and Damages to
Health at Akwesasne

http://www.indiantime.net/story/2014/03/27/reader-submission/when-will-the-time-come-for-st-lawrence-county-government-to-talk-with-residents-of-akwesasne-and-st-lawrence-county-about-pcbs/13422.html

“I find great joy in having my letter published by Indian Time.  The
willingness of Indian Time to assist with bringing out the Truth about
past and ongoing PCB exposures and damages to health at Akwesasne is
most encouraging.  I feel very hopeful about change coming when I
think about the power of information published on the internet.  I
believe that many residents of Akwesasne will learn about persistent
organic pollutants (POPs) exposure minimization through the joint
efforts of Cancer Action NY and Indian Time.  This is the way public
health education should be, people working together to share
information about avoidable health hazards.”-Donald L. Hassig
