Demolition for NAFTA's I-69 Superhighway begins

Members of Valley Watch were able to go out on Wednesday, March 12 and tape some of the damage that was done to trees in the yards of homes taken by the State. You can view their footage here or on their website.

Trees on homes lining State Highway 68 (approx. 1.77 miles north of Interstate 64) were mostly all cleared today, and demolitions could possibly start within the next week. INDOT claims that homes won’t be “torn down” until at least April, but based on their past lies and obfuscations, who knows if that’s true or not. Below is a quote from the Evansville FOX 7 media report that may be interesting to folks:

After decades of waiting, crews are finally breaking ground on the Interstate 69 extension. Some of the first bulldozers began knocking down trees Tuesday afternoon, making room for the interstate. According to an INDOT spokesperson, homes won’t be torn down until at least April. The project will demolish more than 400 Hoosier homes. Although work has begun, some of those residents losing their homes are still fighting back. INDOT’s spokesperson says environmental studies have been conducted for more than a decade, making this the most studied corridor in state history.

The following link is to the complete video of the story:

The clearing is being completed by Gohmann A&C of Clarksville, IN. More info on this company is available in the Those Responsible section.

Information on the bids are available here (third contract down):

STAY TUNED: More information will be posted as it becomes available!

When the Economy Crashes and People finally WAKE UP (not being able to eat tends to do this) and get ARMED.

It will be time to go after The Elite (Conspirater's Hierarchy : Committe of 300)and their BUSINESSES (Media, Corporations, ect).

You'll have to go through The Goddamn Feds. I mean THROUGH.

They got the Guns. We got the NUMBERS.
