    Massachusetts Institute of Technology Professor, Noam Chomsky, has given his full support and endorsement of the Occupy EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) demonstration and rally being held on March 30, 2012 outside EPA headquarters in Washington, DC. Chomsky has written 100 books on U.S. foreign and domestic policy and is considered one of the preeminent intellectuals and activists of the 21st Century. Dr. Chomsky is preparing a promotional video encouraging public support of Occupy EPA and the occupy movement throughout the United States.

    Occupation, civil rights, environmental, and community groups from around the country will launch the American Spring (AS) on Friday, March 30th at 12:00 noon with a march from Franklin Square Park (13th and I Sts, NW, Washington, DC) down 12th Street to the EPA Headquarters at 12th andPennsylvania, where the rally will begin at 1:00 pm on the lawn in front of Lisa Jackson's office at the EPA's headquarters. The march will be lead by NOW DC organizers Dr. Margaret Flowers and Kevin Zeese and EPA Whistleblowers Dr. Marsha Coleman-Adebayo and Susan Morris. Speakers will include: Pediatricians, Drs.
