Calling for Justice for Libby Montana. Calling on MT AG Steve Bullock.
Montana Women For – a fabulous organization out there Livingston/Bozeman way, advocating for peace, justice and equality – has a heart wrenching piece up regarding the W.R. Grace verdict from Andrea Peacock, author of Libby, Montana: Asbestos and the Deadly Silence of an American Corporation .
From the piece:
It never was Gayla Benefield or Norita or Les Skramstad’s job to get justice for Libby. It was the job of the EPA and Department of Justice; it was the duty of Montana’s media; and it remains the responsibility of the Montana Attorney General.
Andrea is correct. I’m no lawyer – nor do I play one on the intertubes – but Montana can not allow W.R. Grace to get away with mass murder. If there is a law to be had – and as far as I know there is no statute of limitations on murder – then Bullock needs to take on this task. For Libby. For Montana. This can not and should not happen again. Standing by and allowing the EPA and Malloy to serve up this final bitter pill as the end-all to the asbestos poisoning of Montana citizens can not be allowed.
If there’s no more, then Bullock needs to tell us why.
You must read No Justice for Libby Montana. Call Attorney General Steve Bullock. And then take the appropriate action.
