Kraft Foods is literally slaughtering the people of the small town of Wilmington, IL. The company dumped over 1,000 barrel drums of lethal poisons and over 1,600 semi truck loads in the vicinity of this ommunity. Kraft Foods poisons sat out in open ponds and the land for 30 years seeping into the 20 ft wells, which provide the citizens with drinking water.
The macabre result: 21 suicides, 21 breast cancers out of 40 graduating class, lymphomas, leukemias, hysterectomies, infertilites, dead babies etc all in a 3 mile radius!!
But Kraft simply doesn't care and refuses to remove their poison. Ban Kraft Food until they come get their toxic waste out of this neighbourhood ~! ►SIGN this urgent petition◄

<i>On May 26 I posted this message on the Facebook-wall of Amnesty International USA. But without any reaction. Is nobody interested? Is this topic not relevant to Amnesty? Then I sent it as a e-mail to both Amnesty and Greenpeace. But untill now: no answers. How can I (we) start up a petition to force the US government to take responsibility and help this completely poisoned country?</i>

"A couple of weeks ago I saw the docu 'Battle's poison cloud' about Vietnam 34 years after the war. The extensive use of chemicals is still causing devastating damage to humans and to nature today. Water and soil are heavely poisoned. Vietnam has, since the war, recorded extraordinarily high numbers of birth abnormalities.
Serious birth defects and malformations are now been seen in the second generation of children born after the war. Vietnamese scientists are adamant that these defects are a direct result of dioxin poisoning. And they are fearful that the dioxin may have affected the DNA. <u>However, the United States refuses to acknowledge that there is a link between dioxin poisoning and malformations. Ironically, the US recognises the effects of Agent Orange in their own vets and their children.</u>
THIS COUNTRY AND THESE PEOPLE NEED AND DESERVE OUR HELP NOW!!!!!"
