Our Klamath Basin Water Crisis
Upholding rural Americans' rights to grow food,
own property, and caretake our wildlife and natural resources.
Robert F Kennedy Jr takes helm of Waterkeeper Alliance as Chairman; Board of Directors Announces New President, Executive Director posted 10/5/07. (KBC NOTE: For a little explanation on Whose Who: Waterkeeper is affiliated with international groups of dam-removal advocates. Anti-hog farms, dredge mining, coal burning power, dams--Klamath Dams. Local activists of this agenda-driven group are called "riverkeepers" as in "Klamath Riverkeeper." "Bobby Kennedy joins Klamath Tribes, fishermen and Riverkeeper in PacifiCorp toxin suit." Bobby is senior attorney. Craig Tucker, coordinator and spokesman for the Karuk Tribe, previously worked with the environmental group Friends of the River, a California group advocating dam removal. He presently is on the board of Klamath Riverkeeper. Tucker is a lead in settlement negotiations between Klamath Water Users Association, environmentalists, agencies and Klamath River Tribes. Recent articles have said that Klamath irrigators are in these negotiations; please let us correct that misconception. We irrigators are not privy to these secret negotiations, bartering hydropower dams with water rights and power rates...secrecy was mandatory. The tribes have told their constituencies, but Klamath Basin irrigators to date have not been allowed to learn what these groups of 'brothers' are negotiating in detail. We have been assured that we will have a public comment period before it's a done deal.)
Felice Pace, with Klamath Forest Alliance, worked as a volunteer helping to get Riverkeeper group up and running.
Board of directors: Craig Tucker, Nat Pennington, Petey Brucker, Kyle Haines.
