We, the undersigned, oppose the federal
government's decision to use toxic chemical dispersants in oil spill
response. We are concerned about the long-term health consequences to
humans and wildlife following wide-spread use of Corexit during the
BP Deepwater Horizon disaster. Human health must be a higher priority
than corporate profit. We oppose the federal government's treatment
of human health as a risk tradeoff when considering products. We
demand that the EPA immediately and permanently removes all products
that contain known human health hazards and/or proprietary
ingredients from its Product Schedule. Further, we demand that the
National Contingency Plan be amended to require that all products
used in disaster response must first be proven safe to human health
and the environment.
Ultimate Civics works to empower people to regain local control of their communities and to create a functional democracy. Our goal is to build a popular movement and pass a constitutional amendment to reinstate the primacy of human rights over corporate rights.
