Gov. Chris Christie’ governing history … on 3/2011

SealofNJ– NEW JERSEY: Gov. Chris Christie’s (R) budget raised taxes on the working poor and middle-class by cutting the state’s Earned Income Tax Credit and homestead rebates — yet still found money for lucrative corporate tax cuts. This year, Christie has called for $200 million in business tax cuts, while proposing to cut mental health services, cut $540 million from Medicaid, and withhold property tax rebates for seniors until public workers give up many of their health and pension benefits. Many New Jerseyans have said they prefer a tax on millionaires to Christie’s draconian cuts.

Your role in another historic victory for the U’wa!

The U’wa indigenous people of Colombia became world-famous in the 1990’s for successfully stopping Occidental Petroleum from drilling in their territory. The U’wa cosmovision of oil as the “Blood of Mother Earth” captured the world’s imagination and galvanized an international grassroots solidarity movement.

Now the U’wa have won another historic victory with Amazon Watch supporters like you playing a key role. When you choose to become a Monthly Sustainer, you commit to partnerships for real change.

Once again, we provided vital international support to the U’wa as they successfully challenged the Magallanes gas project. The gas platform constructed on U’wa ancestral territory without their consent was recently dismantled!

You play a key role in these partnerships and victories for human rights, for the rainforest, and for our planet.

carmen, we win when we each commit to support our partners in their courageous fight for the earth and a sustainable future for all people.

The U’wa will continue to look to Amazon Watch for partnership and support. Please support our work with the U’wa and other frontline communities to protect more than 60 million acres of rainforest from oil development and mega-dams.

Thank you!
