Google/Paypal Owners Building "Green" Electric Car On Downey Toxic Dump Site?1/9

by California Coalition For Workers Memorial Day Tuesday, Dec. 22, 2009 at 8:14 PM

Google owners Larry Page and Sergey Brin and former Paypal owner Elon Musk who is now CEO of Telsa Motors Inc. are planning to possibly build a "green" electric car on the highly toxic dump site in Downey owned by toxic site developer Stuart Licther. Lichter recently lost a SLAPP suit when he tried to shut up injured workers and worker advocates.

Car Race Going Off A Cliff?

Tesla has launched their Roadster electric car on a run from Los Angeles to the Detroit auto show opening on January 8, 2010. Tesla hopes long car trip ends 'range anxiety'-Need Flyer In LA At Start Of Car Race?
http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2009/12/15/BUBU1B45AM.DTL
The question is why at the same time would they want to build a “green” car assembly plant at a toxic dump site? Is this car race going off the cliff for Tesla?


The California Coalition For Workers Memorial Day and the Peninsula Raging Grannies will be having a press/education/musical event in conjunction with the Detroit Auto Show which opens in Detroit on January 8, 2009.
Tesla management and the Google major stake holders Larry Page and Sergey Brin along with former owner of Paypal Elon Musk are moving ahead with plans to build a “green” auto assembly plant at the toxic downey dump site in southern California where hundreds of workers have been sickened.
They have also received a $465 million loan from the Obama Department of Energy DOE to build the non-union assembly auto plant. Why would these billionaire owners need a US government loan to build a green electric car plant if they believe in this product?
The Peninsula Raging Grannies are active supporters of “green” technology and electric cars but do not believe that Tesla should be building or considering to build such a site at a former Super Fund toxic dump site where IATSE movie propmakers and SEIU Kaiser workers have become sickened. The site owner and toxic developer Stuart Lichter who owns IRG and toxic dump sites around the country recently lost a SLAPP suit in which he charged the injured workers and advocates had slandered him and his business. Has Tesla learned the results of this suit of Stuart Lichter to cover up the deadly dangers at the toxic dump site?
IATSE Local 44 movie propmaker Steve Basile visited the world headquarters of Tesla in San Carlos on December 9, 2009 and was told by Tesla Vice President for communications Ricardo Reyes that they were concerned and would make arrangements to meet with the workers.
Instead Reyes and Tesla have refused to return email and calls from the injured movie workers at the Downey site.

Toxic Dump Site...

The Downey toxic dump site was a former US military base that was developed without properly cleaning it up. Now some billionaires want to build a "green" electric auto plant on it.
