BUCKET BRIGADE

Rallyers in Klamath Falls at noon Monday will protest the cutting off of irrigation water to about 1,400 producers. Some Union County growers are planning be there to show

support.

The event will include a bucket brigade stretching the five miles from Klamath Lake to an irrigation canal. The success of this event will help raise the profile of the crisis in Klamath Falls, organizers said. They feel the need to show the world that this isnt a Klamath issue, its a family-farm issue.

Barry Bushue, president of the Oregon Farm Bureau, said that if we stand quietly and let this happen to the farmers in Klamath Falls, then we deserve it when they come after us next. Lets not stand by quietly.

This rally is a chance to make a loud and immediate statement that agriculture stands together, and that we dont leave our friends behind, Bushue added.

The Union County contingents trip to Klamath Falls is being organized by Debbie Murchison. Anyone looking for a ride, or who has Monday free, can call Murchison at 568-4388.

The state Farm Bureau hopes at least two representatives from each county Farm Bureau will attend the rally. Estimates are that 10,000 people are needed to make the brigade work.

Oregon Farm Bureau will provide buses to take each countys people to Klamath Falls.
