2 responses to “In the Press

  1. Barbara Wynn

    Tell nestles to go home to their water-we are not giving them the water here for them to make money -we are having a drought -we need to conserve – tell big money to get lost

  2. Nestles is STILL on the City Councils agenda here inGoldendale, WA. JUNE 19th at 7pm they will be talking and or approving Nestles stealing the aquifer from a massive spring that serves Goldendale. A man named Ty Ross has some connection to Nestles and a BIG land owner and political adversary to local politicians here. Last meeting the city had usually only has 5-7 people show for their meetings. When Nestles reared there ugly head here to be stationed here, 250 people showed up to speak their voice and say “NO to Nestles”..:
    I am the program director for a small low power radio station here called, KVGD – LP 100.1 FM, Goldendale Community Radio. I speak about the atrocities Nestlé’s has perpetrated on other communities in around the world. You can visit our website at: or KVGD.FM and listen to our live shows podcasts and music etc. We don’t get the support financially we need from the locals here and are in the process of acquiring another radio station called KDO a 101.5 FM which would broadcast our “Voice of the Voiceless”, far and wide. We need $10,000 to acquire this station and looking for anyone willing to get a tax write off for this project as we have a 501(c)(3) umbrella called “Community Enrichment for Klickitat County” or CEKC.
    Anyone willing to do a live phone interview please contact me at: 503-382-9533. Hope to see you there!
