MJL Applauds DoJ Decision to Block AT&T/T-Mobile Merger

San Antonio, TX - In a move that many consumer groups are happy with, the Department of Justice has filed suit to block the proposed AT&T/T-Mobile merger. While this is good news for Americans in general, Texan families in particular should be happy with this newest development.

FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski explained that “[b]y filing suit today, the
Department of Justice has concluded that AT&T’s acquisition of T-Mobile would substantially lessen competition in violation of the antitrust laws.”

We feel heartened by the DoJ’s obervations that the merger does not in fact meet anti-trust law standards. Fostering and protecting healthy competition in any market can only benefit the American people.

Public Screening and Discussion: Save the Farm

Culture Consumers invites the community to take part in this public screening of “Save the Farm”. The short documentary depicts the struggle to maintain the country’s largest urban community garden in South Central Los Angeles. This is a condensed version of the Oscar-nominated film “The Garden”.

Footage of local community gardens will also be highlighted via Green Spaces Alliance. Speakers will also be on hand to take questions and provide more information to the public. Guests will include members of Roots for Change Community Garden, Green Spaces Alliance and Evergreen Garden.

This public forum is intended to stimulate a platica among the community members and the organizers of various community gardens in our area to provide the needed information for individuals interested in learning more about gardening, sustainability and the future of food.
