Activists with Cascadia Forest Defenders and Earth First! converged on the Seneca Jones biomass plant in Eugene this morning to protest the company’s privatization of public lands in the Elliott State Forest and ongoing pollution in West Eugene.
 
Several protestors locked themselves to equipment at the plant, effectively blocking the “truck dump” where biomass is loaded into the incinerator.
 
The plant releases an estimated 17,900 pounds of air toxins into West Eugene Neighborhoods annually.
 
There are three schools within three miles of the Seneca biomass facility.
 
For more information, KBOO’s Ken Jones spoke with Grace Warner of Cascadia Forest Defenders.

Eugene police will engage in forced blood tests over 4th of July weekend

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Wed, 07/02/2014
Eugene listeners will be interested to know that if they’re stopped at a police checkpoint this coming weekend, they had better agree to perform a Breathalyzer test, or risk being forced to have their blood drawn by the police.

During the coming holiday weekend in Eugene, police will implement a policy to forcibly draw blood from people who refuse to take an alcohol Breathalyzer test.
The so-called ‘no refusal’ policy will likely result in people being strapped down to gurneys and forced to have their blood drawn.
 
That’s been the result of ‘no refusal’ policies in other cities where they’ve been implemented.
