Tell the St. James Parish Council: NO FORMOSA
Send a letter to the St. James Parish council below.
As one of your constituents, I am writing to urge you to stop Formosa Plastics from building a toxic plastics plant next to my home.
St. James Parish should be investing in healthier, long-term industries like lots of other Louisiana communities are doing. Yet you and your colleagues are choosing to put risky bets on dying industries like Formosa Plastics. Why are you choosing toxic plants over long-term industries?
These days, many oil and plastics producers are shutting their doors and taking jobs with them. When Shell closed its refinery right here in Convent, it laid off 700 residents. We simply can’t afford another financially risky, toxic chemical plant.
Our message is clear: No Formosa Plastics. St. James Parish deserves better.
Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.
