See press release following these observations:


"Water For All"  <http://www.thewaterforall.com>
http://www.thewaterforall.com  is organizing a rally outside of Congressman
Miller's office next week. 


It's pretty clear that this is not a grassroots protest of any kind- this
group shares an address with the "Latino Water Coalition," and it seems to
be a front group run by Piedad Ayala, a labor contractor in Fresno who also
receives cotton subsidies for a farm in Avenal, CA 

http://farm.ewg.org/farm/persondetail.php?custnumber=009875240   He's also
running the same announcement on his labor contractor's corporate website:


According to the press release below, this effort is coordinated with the
right-wing "central valley tea party," not exactly a sign that they're
interested in constructive solutions to California's water problems.  


It's worthwhile knowing what's in the works and who and what is behind it.

George MillerA group called Water for All is organizing a protest rally at
the Bay Area office of Democrat George Miller on Aug. 13 at 10 a.m. in

As a member of the House Natural Resources Committee, Miller has been a
critic of irrigated agriculture on the west side of the San Joaquin Valley.
Protesters plan to oppose Miller's stance on the Endangered Species Act that
has led to protections of Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta fish species
and reduced water deliveries to local farmers. 

 Miller's office is located at 1333 Willow Pass Rd., Ste 203, in Concord.
