Demand Protection Of Treasure Island Residents From Toxic/Radioactive Waste
Call-in Mon, Feb 8, 2pm to demand San Francisco clean up Treasure Island toxic & radioactive waste

(See Call-In Directions below.)

Nearly 2,000 residents are unacceptably being exposed to toxic and radioactive waste from the former Navy base on Treasure Island. They need our help to demand a full cleanup.

After over a decade of struggle, Treasure Island residents, cleanup whistleblowers, and environmental justice organizations, will at last be heard at an online hearing of the San Francisco Land Use Committee, to reveal decades of Navy and government coverups of the toxic and radioactive waste.

You can help Treasure Island residents by calling in to the hearing to make a public comment demanding a full investigation and cleanup of the contamination.

CALL-IN DIRECTIONS

Call in to the online hearing Monday, February 8, at 2pm, so that you can get in line to support Treasure Island residents in this fight. (The hearing begins at 1:30pm.)

    WHAT TO SAY

When it is your turn to speak demand:

- An independent investigation and retesting of all cleanup work on Treasure Island

- Deep soil & water tests of all lands (not just surface scans)

- Testing for all contaminants (not just radiation)

- A review of the work of all contractors (not just Tetra Tech)

- Protection for tenants from retaliation for speaking out about contamination and health problems

- A full and proper cleanup of Treasure Island to Residential Standards that will allow people to grow gardens in their soil, and children and pets to play in their own yards.

Call in to the online meeting Monday, February 8, at 2pm, to help Treasure Island residents win this fight!

Thanks!
