Activists! I need help!
17 May 2001
Massachusetts activists, please come and help fight urban sprawl in Essex County. A call to act, and a call to protest. Fight the Chapter 20B 'snob law'!
The situation in the northern part of Essex County, north of the Merrimac River, is becoming dire.

I am a young life-long resident of a small Massachusetts town once renowned for its carriage manufaction that is being forced to watch all of his memories and dreams being destroyed by urban sprawl, ruthless development, the coercion of the state, and small-town good 'ol boy politics. This is a cry for help.

I want to schedule protests in the region, specifically in the Town of Merrimac, a development hotspot, and other northern towns. However, as our numbers are small, we need outside help. All we need is for you to be there - this is a protest for all people, since overdevelopment and ecological destruction affects us all. Please email me at aschlosser (at) for the story and details. If there is a lot of interest, we can make this happen, and wake up a lot of sleeping towns that are being cruelly taken advantage of by ruthless developers twisting the already-twisted laws of the state.
