City counselors of a small Welsh town on Wednesday unanimously rejected a company's bid to build a new open-pit coal mine, defying the developer's threats to sue them and attracting jubilant praise from residents and environmental organizations.
The company is threatening to sue over what the large majority of people want for their environment. They would like clean air and a safe green environment. The trade deal Obama wants to push through will give corporate companies the right to sue for the very same reasons. The people of America will not be able to fight it. Say no to TPP. Good for the Welsh Town Council. Hopefully our people will have as much sense.
