Central Valley Farmers Join Forces to Demand Special Drought Session at “Take Back Our Water Rally” in Mendota


FRESNO – The California Water for Food and People Movement,replica bags My Job Depends on Ag and Gar Tootelian in collaboration with Assemblyman Jim Patterson, will join hundreds of Central Valley farmers, families and farm workers in Mendota on October 2 for the “Take Back Our Water” rally.

This grassroots effort was initiated by the local Ag community to call on Governor Brown to recognize the impact of the drought as well as the devastating decisions made by bureaucrats, and begin to craft real solutions during a special session of the California State Legislature.


A bi-partisan group of 47 legislators also called for a special session earlier this month.


“This drought is due to more than just a lack of rain – decisions made by unelected state water boards have made this more of a “regulatory drought” than ever before and it’s time for a change,” said Westside farmer Wayne Western. “We are not going to conserve our way out of this drought so we need to make finding real solutions a priority by calling a special session now.” 

Attendees at the rally will be asked to sign a letter urging Governor Brown to call a special session. The need for more dam storage and decisions that put fish over families will be discussed by a list of educational and inspirational speakers at the “Take Back Our Water Rally.”
