Publisher's Summary

Fighting Dirty tells the story of how one small group of farmers, small-town residents, and Indigenous people fought the world’s largest waste disposal company to stop them from expanding a local dumpsite into a massive landfill. As one of the experts brought in to assess the impact the toxic waste would have on the community, Poh-Gek Forkert was part of the adventures and misadventures of their decades-long fight.

What the critics say

“If an account of an environmental battle can be a page turner, this is it…. The author does a superb job of explaining the findings of the scientists involved and what was at stake in the process…. Fighting Dirty is a valuable handbook for citizen participation in direct democracy.” —The Monitor

Fighting Dirty is a compelling page-turner and a tribute to all those people who have dedicated their lives to working together to protect their community against seemingly insurmountable big government and big corporate forces.” —John Jackson, co-author of Chemical Nightmare: The Unnecessary Legacy of Toxic Waste
