Stop Poisoning & Killing Us For Profits! Hunters Point Community Residents Speak Out
by Labor Video Project
A rally and speak-out was held to support a San Francisco Grand Jury report that said rising bay waters would expose the toxins and radioactive material at Hunters Point to residents and the community. It also attacked the failure of City, State and Federal agencies to do proper oversight of the Lennar condo development and protect the residents. Hunters Point residents and advocates spoke out. Many said this deadly situation was continuing because of profiteering by developers, government agencies and city, state and federal politicians.

Hunters Point residents and community members rallied at San Francisco City Hall on June 3, 2022 to support a San Francisco's Grand Jury report that said that there had been no real oversight of the development of Hunters Point superfund sight. Over $1 billion of US government funds have already been spent to remediate the site as well as Treasure Island but as a result of fraud by Tetra Tech and Test America and retaliation against many OSHA and health and safety whistleblowers, the site continues to be contaminated. The speakers also talked about the capture of government regulatory agencies by Lennar and other developers and their collusion with politicians who have allowed this development.

The Grand Jury report said that as a result of rising bay waters there would be a threat of dangerous toxins and radioactive material being exposed and further contaminating the community and visitors to the area. This report is also applicable to the massive development of the man made Treasure Island which is in the middle of the SF bay and also threatened with rising waters. It also reported that SF DPH and other state & federal agencies had not provided oversight.

Speakers talked about the continuing health dangers and also Dr. Ahimsa Sumchai reported on the cover-up of the dangers by government agencies and city, state and national politicians. Speakers demanded that the continuing removal of earth stop and that there be real oversight of their health and safety. Dr. Sumchai also reported that UCSF managers had covered up the contamination of workers on Hunters Point at a UCSF animal facility. Workers at the site which is next to the SF Police Department training center had also been contaminated with radioactive isotopes from the radioactive site. Many workers who were contaminated from radiation and other toxins have been fighting for workers compensation.
