"THE ONLY THING NECESSARY FOR THE TRIUMPH OF EVIL IS FOR GOOD MEN TO DO NOTHING"
--Burke

When oh when will they talk about the Toxic Waste?

Seems like everything is coming up in the news these days.
- Asarco's Bankruptcy Court case.
- Refineries, pollution, cost of Oil
- OSHA investigation of Asarco related 1990 letter and lung capacity of Mexican Americans
- Hayden AZ
- Arsenic levels
- The EPA saying that the TCEQ didn't do its job
- NMED saying that the TCEQ didn't do its job

But nothing about the unknown toxic wastes in our water from the secret illegal years of toxic waste handling/burning.

Nothing about the unknown toxic wastes in our soils and resuspended-into-the-air from those years and years of illegal secret toxic waste handling and burning.

Nothing.

Nada.

A deafening silence.

- Martin Luther King wisely said: "There comes a time when silence becomes betrayal". It is a betrayal of our children, our schools, our parks, our drinking water, our homes.

Speak Up, El Paso.
