Diane Wilson #StopTheDredging #StopOilExports Hunger Strike
Background: On April 7th, 2021 4th-generation shrimper, activist, and author Diane Wilson began a hunger strike at the waterfront of Lavaca Bay to demand that the Biden Administration stop the dredging of the mercury-contaminated Matagorda Ship Channel, and ban crude oil exports.
What’s happening: In the morning on April 7th, Diane will park her truck at a symbolic location on Lavaca Bay and begin her hunger strike.
