Archived: Re: “Churchgoers Ask AQMD to Save Them from Pollution” by Gloria Angelina Castillo pub. Feb 5, 2009:



People speak out on pollution in the community that has been in Boyle Heights for years. Why hasn’t the community spoken out years ago when City officials gave out permits to have businesses put throughout the Industrial Area of Boyle Heights that emits chemicals that cause cancer. Not to mention all the fumes that are emitted into Boyle Heights from the freeways. Truck’s traffic through residential streets for short cuts and pass dozens of schools throughout Boyle Heights and children out playing in yards and school play grounds.’

A little to late for Boyle Heights residents and their families!

Generations will probably suffer for generations to come because of the lack in public output.

People need to get to City Councils, Mayor of Los Angeles and City Attorneys to come up with stiffer rules about the business licenses that are given to people that want to have a business in Boyle Heights.

People get out and VOTE on issues at the Polls or if you don’t you might as well go buy your plots at the Cemetery now.
