Dr. Ahimsa Porter Sumchai has been fighting for decades to expose the serious health and safety conditions at the Hunters Point Naval shipyard. She talks about her life and her father who was a member of ILWU Local 10 in San Francisco. She also discusses the drive to convert the former highly contaminated superfund site to condominiums despite the serious radioactive and other highly dangerous toxins.

Dr. Sumchai talks about the numerous politicians and regulators in San Francisco, California and nationally who have colluded with the Lennar developers to cover-up the failure to properly remediate the dangerous site. She points out that this development will personally benefit politicians such as Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi and Senator Diane Feinstein.

Numerous health and safety whistleblowers have been bullied and terminated because of reporting falsified testing and an criminal effort to report that the site had been properly cleaned up.
This interview was done in San Francisco on 3/22/18.
