2nd and Bond StreetS Monday Night
CORD has been trying to get the attention of the media ALL this week. It has been a rough week for far too many of us. Tonight we decided to try CNN and NPR. You can write to them too. (See below).
Here is what we said:
Dear Mr. Cooper:
PLEASE HELP US!! We are living in the toxic flood aftermath of a EPA designated Superfund site right here in Brooklyn! We had a flood of five feet of highly contaminated Gowanus Canal water during Hurricane Sandy and toxic sludge has been left behind with highly dangerous chemicals including oil, PCB's, coal tar wastes, E coli, gonorrhea, heavy metals, and raw sewage. This is one of the most contaminated waterways in America directly across from Wall Street.
We need media coverage! No one is helping us! Our elected officials have forgotten us! Supermarkets that have been flooded with this toxic stew are now selling us food! HELP!!
PLEASE HELP US!!!
