The Goals And Tactics Of "Siskiyou Forward"

If you want to start a fight in the West, announce plans to open a water bottling plant. 

Crystal Geyser's plan to start operations in Mount Shasta touched off a storm of protest.  And it appears to have created an ongoing political force in the  Siskiyou Forward Movement

The group is drawing up plans for a Siskiyou County ballot measure that would make it harder for future water bottlers to sell groundwater outside the county.  The group also opposes a measure on the June 7 ballot that would raise more money for a bigger jail.  Siskiyou Forward founder Andy Fusso and Angelina Cook, who heads the groundwater campaign, join us.
