Jan and Mike McCleery were having a leisurely boating weekend on Mildred Island in the California Delta when they learned how our state and federal government were plotting to put in gate dams that would have blocked waterways to Discovery Bay. They got the Discovery Bay Yacht Club to start forming a protest group. More than 400 people showed up at a town hall meeting in the local school auditorium. The invited government officials were astounded at the level of the very educated and passionate protest speeches given by the residents. This video with Jan and Mike McCleery chronicles how they started SAVE THE CALIFORNIA DELTA ALLIANCE (STCDA) that has grown into a political force that has gotten the government to put the Two Gates project on ice. Ms. McCleery said, "We hope our involvement and protests will have the same effect on the 30 mile long twin tunnels through the Delta that will cost billions of dollars and wreck the Delta even more than the original Two Gates Project."
