LAST Santa Susana Field Laboratory EIR HEARING October 7 — CRITICAL


, ,

Yesterday the first of two hearings on DTSC’s Environmental Impact Report for SSFL cleanup was held. The last is tomorrow. It is critical that you come and testify if at all possible. DTSC is proposing to break its longstanding commitment for a full cleanup of the contamination and instead to just walk away from vast quantities of soil polluted with radioactivity and chemically toxic poisons.

The hearing last night was very moving —dozens of people spoke passionately about the cancers in the community and their outrage that DTSC would break its promises about cleaning up the toxic mess, and plan instead to leave it to keep migrating offsite to the people who live in the area.

This is the last hearing. PLEASE, PLEASE, if you can, come and speak (3 minutes) as part of the formal comment period. Express your dismay that the toxics agency seems to be controlled by the polluters it is supposed to regulate, like Boeing, rather than working to protect the health of the public.

The last SSFL EIR hearing is Saturday, Oct 7 – please attend and speak up for the promised full cleanup!

What to expect
When you arrive, please fill out a comment card and indicate that you would like to speak. Comments are limited to 3 minutes and are taken in the order the comment cards are submitted, so we recommend arriving early at the beginning of the open house.

Be prepared to hear a barrage of information from DTSC and Boeing surrogates on potentially harmful impacts from the cleanup. Know that many of these impacts are false or exaggerated. By far the greatest risk to the community and environment is if the contamination doesn’t get cleaned up, posing a risk both onsite and from contamination migrating offsite.

For more information, please see the FAQ page from the new website, Protect Santa Susana from Boeing.

Thank you,

SSFL Work Group
Working to ensure a full cleanup of the contamination at SSFL

DTSC Draft EIR Breaks Santa Susanna Field Laboratory Cleanup Commitments


, , , ,

Attend public hearings Oct. 5 and 7


The Dept. of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) has finally released its draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the SSFL cleanup. The EIR includes proposals that violate the AOC cleanup agreements DTSC signed with the DOE and NASA for full cleanup of their SSFL areas. For Boeing’s part of SSFL, the EIR blocks from even being considered cleanup to the standards DTSC hand long promised.

The EIR also omits cancer risk information and hypes potential negative impacts of the cleanup, presenting a very inaccurate assessment of the SSFL cleanup. Tell DTSC to keep its promises and require ALL SSFL contamination to be cleaned up!

To make matters worse, Boeing has pulled out all the stops by releasing a website called “Protect Santa Susana” urging people to submit comments to DTSC and elected officials recommending a cleanup that would leave most of the contamination not cleaned up! To fight back, cleanup advocates have launched a new website, Protect Santa Susana from Boeing, that counters Boeing’s disinformation campaign. Please visit the site and share widely.

Comments on the draft EIR are one of the most important and final opportunities for the public to weigh in on the cleanup.

Please submit your comment to DTSC and attend the public hearings that DTSC is holding next week.
• Thursday, October 5 – The October 5 meeting will be held from 6 – 9 pm at the Grand Vista Hotel, 999 Enchanted Way, Simi Valley, CA 93065.
• Saturday, October 7 – The October 7 meeting will be held from 2 – 5 pm at St. John Eudes Church, 9901 Mason Avenue, Chatsworth, CA 91311.

I Just saw 22 recruiters in camouflage at my old high school. I’ve never seen so damn many. Do they know something we don’t know? And they are all dressed to kill–literally, figuratively, whatever. The child predators had a whole bunch of kids names stacked In their hands, that I’m supposing, who didn’t opt out of the military. They’re at our junior highs too. Junior high. I mean I don’t think puberty has recruited them yet. They can’t even park a car or enter a bar. I guess it’s back to those good old Hitler Youth Group days. Got to have those young soldiers for all those new wars, like the war for minerals in Afghanistan (New York Times: “Donald Trump Finds a New Reason to Stay in Afghanistan, Minerals”). And then there’s the nuclear war in N. Korea, or the war around the corner in Iran, that could lead to WWIII. Iran, watch out.

Our war machine is on steroids, and they haven’t forgotten that 1998 American Century Project hit list either. You’re one of the 7 “axis of evil,” remember? The list is dwindling down. We’ve got Iraq, we’ve got Syria, we’ve got Libya, we’ve got cross hairs on North Korea. The list is getting shorter and shorter Iran. You’re closer to midnight than you think. Just wanted you to know. And please don’t take this like I’m taking it lightly. The last thing I want our government to do is bomb you. And I
I know you’ve done everything, all the right things to avoid war with us; and I love your people, and your wonderful history, and your open markets, and your strong women and generosity, and I would very much love to visit you. But the gastapo strangeloves in the Pentagon won’t take no for an answer, and they are training our youth. And they can’t seem to stop their runaway militarism. The train just keeps
rolling, faster and faster, farther and farther. Never breaking. Wider and wider. And the box cars of death get fuller and fuller. And all of we Americans had never been told the truth about the war, but when we leaned the truth about it, the majority of

Americans now don’t want the war. And with the capture of Bin Laden, most of us think the war should be over. We are tired of war, and we want it to end. It is killing our children and draining our economy, and turning us into a militaristic society. This is not what our Founders imagined our democracy would be. Most of us know that the only difference between a MiG jet fighter and a bomb in a back pack is that the jet fighter does far more damage than the back pack. We know that there is no greater terror than war; and that war has always been an impulsive terrorist. All I can say are in tears. Tears for all losses over 16 years of war, and for what? Tears for our children who are brainwashed with the glory of war and recruitment. Tears of anger for those predators who stalk the minds of our children, so they can be raped on the  battlefields, or have their memories and souls raped at home. War is terrorism. We know and we know. We write letters. We take to the streets. Hudreds of thousands have protested. We cry at our grave sites. But it goes on and on and…

ACTION: Prevent powerful microwave emitting antennas for 4G/5G from being installed every 4-12 houses on utility poles in California!


, , , , , ,




SB 649 gives telecommunications companies rubber stamp approval to install powerful microwave emitting antennas for 4G/5G every 4 to 12 houses on utility poles along the street!  It removes local city and county authority over cellular facility placement and we would have no legal right to stop it.

SB 649 would put radio frequency radiation (RFR) cell towers on
 every block in every neighborhood and countryside in California with an over the counter permit. PLEASE contact your representatives and those on the committee to oppose this bill by Tuesday July 11.

Oppose SB 649 because it eliminates local zoning authority, conflicts with federal and other laws, and increases harmful radio frequency radiation (RFR). International independent scientists are calling for reducing RFR based on peer reviewed published science showing RFR harms the public and nature, and children are especially vulnerable.


From the League of California Cities: “…As if SB 649 wasn’t wreaking enough havoc on the ability for cities to protect their residents, the June 20, 2017 amendments completely deregulate and eliminate all oversight for “micro-wireless” facilities which can be equipment nearly three feet long dangling between utility poles, raising significant public safety issues such as obstructing traffic sight distance without any oversight. The bill also now applies a utility pole “attachment rate” formula which is inappropriate for equipment being placed on city buildings, street and traffic lights.
As amended, the bill is no longer limited to just “small cells.” It now applies broadly to all telecommunications providers and the equipment they use from “micro-wireless” to “small cell” to “macro-towers.” It’s clear from the direction of this bill, that this is not about 5G wireless deployment, but more about local deregulation of the entire telecommunications industry.


Though this is focused on what’s happening in California now, similar bills are being introduced throughout the nation with ALEC co-sponsoring the bills.  Watch out for it in your state!
