The Fight for Fair Maps continues, WI - Call your Rep!

Last week OWR showed up in force to the capital to express our opposition to the extreme partisan maps the GOP were proposing. We were delighted to see that every testimony was in opposition to the rigged GOP maps. Despite the complete opposition to the maps, this week every republican, in the senate, voted in favor of the partisan maps. But we won’t give up the fight, because we don’t quit. We must stand up in continued opposition to these rigged maps. Call your legislator and express your opposition,

The Wisconsin Legislature will be voting on the newly rigged maps. Contact your representatives and urge them to vote no!

 
In his testimony last week, Robin Vos confessed that he tilted the maps in his partisan favor, boasting that there was nothing in our Wisconsin Constitution to prohibit it. That kind of arrogance, and that kind of manipulation, cannot be allowed to stand.  So please contact your legislators and tell them to vote against Senate Bill 621 and Assembly Bill 624.

Sign the Petition! COP26 - Stop Excluding Military Pollution from Climate Agreements

Did you know that “because of U.S. government pressure, the governments negotiating the 1992 Kyoto Protocol agreed that emissions generated by military activity would not count as national emissions and would not have to be reported. As a consequence, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which produces one of the world’s most trusted reports on the rate at which climate change is occurring, does not include national military emissions in its calculations.” (streetroots.org)
