Environmental Injustice in Uniontown, AL
May 23-25, 2015

Garry Morgan visited Uniontown, Alabama
upon the request of the Alabama Rivers Alliance 
and the Blue Ridge Environmental Defense League.

The residents of Uniontown
have been subjected to injustice
at the hands of the TVA from coal ash disposal,
and suffer from governmental inaction
at Federal, State and local levels.

Government and corporations
are taking advantage of the poor
in this Alabama Black Belt region
which has created a feeling
in the populace of helplessness.
Sewage disposal system has failed
and corruption in the grant process is evident. 

Garry worked with local residents
and other environmental groups 
o stress the importance of open government
in exposing the inner workings
of local governmental activities
at the county and municipal levels.

At corporate and higher levels of state
and federal government,
Uniontown is a classic example
of environmental racism at its worse.

Government at all levels has and is currently
failing the residents of Uniontown, Alabama.
Political-Corporate corruption is evident.
