Injured Downey Workers To Ask Tesla Why They Are Still Interested In Building Auto Assembly Plant At Toxic Downey Dump Site

Injured workers and their advocates will be rallying at the Los Angeles Tesla automobile dealership in Los Angeles. Tesla Motors Inc. has said

it is still continuing to consider building a "green" electric auto assembly plant at the contaminated former Superfund military industrial complex

in Downey, California with a 5 million dollar loan from the Department of Education DOE. Hundreds of workers and their families have been sickened and contaminated at the sight including movie workers who have recently worked there. Injured workers and their families have also personally visited the world headquarters of Tesla Motors Inc. to warn Tesla about the health and safety problems and discussed the issues with Ricardo Reyes VP for Communications but apparently Tesla still has not received the message from the injured workers.

The injured workers, their families and injured worker advocates will again call on Tesla do the right thing and reject any further plans to build at the site which has not been properly cleaned up. They have also spoken out at a press conferenc in Los Angeles at the LA Press Club and at the Downey Kaiser Hospital Complex.

The Los Angeles Times have also reported on the serious illness issues at the site. Why are the Tesla owners and executives ignoring these serious health issues?

2/10/2010 Bell Speak-out By Downey Movie, Kaiser And LACO Workers 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,the Downey Kaiser complex and Los Angeles County Office of Education LACOE in Downey. 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 Downeylocation. 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.

YouTube - Raging Grannies Bust Tesla Motors Inc.

The California Coalition For Workers Memorial Day ( 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.
