2/10/2010 Bell Speak-out On Downey Toxic Dump Site

Labor & Community SPEAK-OUT!
On The Toxic Nightmare In Downey
February 10 (Wednesday), 2010, 7:00 PM
4850 Gage Avenue/Palm St., Bell, CA 90201-1409

Injured Downey Movie and Kaiser Workers along with community members will speak out about the continuing contamination and sickness at Downey Studios and the Downey Kaiser complex. IRG Downey developer and owner Stuart Licther promised to properly clean up the former Superfund Site which has now been named a “Brownfield” site before it was developed but workers continue to get sick at the Downey location. These workers will report on their long struggle to get healthcare and how they have been affected by this
toxic contamination. This is not just an issue for the workers of the Downey site, but the community who have not been properly informed about the serious health hazards on the site and how they have affected people in the neighborhoods. These injuries were even reported in a front-page
story in the August 2, 2009 Los Angeles Times but no ACTION has been taken to take of these injured workers and people in the community.
It is time to let the public know that these issues have to be addressed and people have to be protected whether they are workers or people who live in the community.
The California Coalition For Workers Memorial Day (www.workersmemorialday.org) and
the workers along with the Dr. Larry Rose, the last doctor at Cal-Osha have called for a epidemiological study of all workers on the site and people in the community before any further development at the site takes place. We need to protect our health and safety and the health of the families in the communities.
Come to the meeting to hear about what has been happening and what we can do about this health emergency.
