DOW DEAD EARTH DAYS OF ACTION
April 14-18, 2010 in New York City

A Week of Events to Cut Through the Greenwash and Expose Dow Chemical's Toxic Lies...

GRAND FINALE ACTION ON APRIL 18TH AT DOW LIVE EARTH RUN FOR WATER...
WHEN WE SHOW DOW THEY CAN'T RUN FROM THE TRUTH !!!!!

On Sunday, April 18th, Dow Chemical, one of the world's worst polluters, will sponsor the Live Earth Run for Water, a shameless attempt to cover up the company's role as a major polluter of drinking water and aquatic ecosystems. Dow refuses to take responsibility for its toxic legacy around the world, and its ongoing efforts to undermine environmental protection.

Join us for a week of events designed to reveal the toxic truth behind Dow's greenwash and force Dow stop running and start cleaning up!

SUMMARY OF EVENTS (see below for details):

BIG FINAL ACTION! SUNDAY, APRIL 18, 7AM (yes, AM!): Protest the Dow Live Earth Run for Water! Yes Men! Grim Reapers! Walking Dead! Runners – from Dow! Dow Polluters In Hazmat Suits!
