Sharon Lavigne at a protest in front of the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality on December 10, 2019. There, members of Rise St. James, the Louisiana Bucket Bridge, and the Center for Biological Diversity called on the state regulator to deny Formosa the air permits it granted this week. They brought with them millions of plastic pellets, known as nurdles, discharged by a Formosa plant in Point Comfort Texas, collected by activists there that won a 50 million dollar suit against the company for polluting the waterways surrounding the plant.
