CHEMICAL INDUSTRY WAGES WAR ON ENVIRONMENT & HEALTH
http://www.ewg.org/briefings/acc/

A news release from the Environmental Working Group reveals that
"the chemical industry plans to conduct a covert campaign attacking
the growing movement in California for more chemical safety
testing, with tactics including the creation of phony front groups
and spying on activists, according to an internal American
Chemistry Council (ACC) memo. ... It recommends to ACC members that
they pay $120,000 a year to Nichols-Dezenhall, a Washington-based
firm that hires former FBI and CIA agents, to conduct 'selective
intelligence gathering ... about the plans, motivations and allies
of opposition activists... Focus on the PP [Precautionary
Principle] movement leadership in the U.S., and in particular,
California.' The memo says Nichols-Dezenhall would also 'create an
independent PP watchdog group to act as an information
clearinghouse and criticize the PP in public and media forums...
The group could be structured as a tax-exempt organization.'" The
EWG release spawned articles in the San Francisco Chroncile and the
Oakland Tribune.
