The EPA Occupied
Today Occupy Washington, DC protested the lax clean air standards of the Obama administration under EPA administrator Lisa Jackson.
After the protest an EPA employee visited us to tell it was a great protest and provided us a copy of an email all EPA employees received warning of the occupiers visiting the Agency. Below is a copy of the email.
Protesters Expected at EPA HQ on Thursday, 11/10/11
