"In 1938, a three story Archer Daniels Midland Company warehouse stood in the shadow of the Bayonne with an address of  2377-2387 Richmond Terrace. Typically the warehouse stored vegetable oil. That year the buildings took on a new purpose when a ship carrying 1200 tons of raw uranium ore from the Belgian Congo unloaded 2,007 steel drums into its secret Staten Island destination.  ...[N]ot even the Staten Island Borough President at the time knew of its arrival...A report from NY 1 dating to April 2010 describes the clean-up, now more than 70 years after the arrival of the uranium, as still being in the 'preliminary assessment' stage."

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 21  

PEOPLE'S CLIMATE MARCH

NEW YORK CITY

In September, world leaders are coming to New York City for a UN summit on the climate crisis. UN Secretary­ General Ban Ki-­moon is urging governments to support an ambitious global agreement to dramatically reduce global warming pollution.

With our future on the line and the whole world watching, we’ll take a stand to bend the course of history. We’ll take to the streets to demand the world we know is within our reach: a world with an economy that works for people and the planet; a world safe from the ravages of climate change; a world with good jobs, clean air and water, and healthy communities.

To change everything, we need everyone on board.
Sunday, September 21 in New York City. Join us.
