Victory for Democracy and Nature

In a victory for democracy and nature, hundreds of people who attended rallies and public hearings got what they wanted on July 20 in the Pioneer Valley town of Southwick. A 66 acre farm field won't be turned into a parking lot for used cars. That was the goal of Carvana corporation. The CEO of the Arizona company made $3 million last year.

Maryssa Cook-Obregón told the Valley Post on July 21, “We have had three rallies (June 26, June 29, July 17). The first had over 100 (people), the second and third had more like 75. All took place in front of Southwick town hall.”
