No Tyson in Tongie
No Tyson in Tongie is a group of committed Tonganoxie and Leavenworth County citizens who oppose Tyson's plans to build a high volume slaughterhouse, hatchery and feed mill in our community. The residents of the city and county were not allowed to vote or voice opinions about the plan.
Tyson Foods has a poor history of unethical treatment of it's employees, inhumane treatment of animals, water and air pollution, over-stressing school and city/county resources, and decreasing home values.
The citizens of Tonganoxie and Leavenworth County oppose the development of the proposed Tyson Poultry Complexes (also known as: Project Sunset) at 222nd Street (County Road 1) and Hemphill Road and Highway 24-40 and Honey Creek Road, or anywhere else within Leavenworth County.
