In a new editorial today by the Gainesville Sun Editorial Board, they summarize the current efforts to rebalance the power between corporations and the people’s commons:
If corporations are now being treated like people under the law, why not rivers?
Alachua County voters might be asking themselves that question when they head to the polls next fall. Environmental advocates are seeking to put an initiative called the Santa Fe River Bill of Rights, aka SAFEBOR, on the November 2020 ballot. . . .
. . . If voters want to reverse the damage being done to the Santa Fe and other parts of our environment, they shouldn’t stop with SAFEBOR. Voters must start treating every election like a referendum on the environment, choosing local, state and federal candidates accordingly.Gainesville Sun Editorial Board, September 8, 2019
