to us and the reason is that this is an honor to work with the common city. This is the toxic waste incinerator and we will stop the toxic waste incinerator. When the green peas the field there we'll call it the heart of going to one of those that will look into that a little truth is coming through the glow almost like you want to believe that you should just not even fight. They would like you to believe that they will go to the incinerator. And now we should just go on with their lives. We can go on with their lives because of toxic waste. The company at the top of the concrete is the commode of India most of the limit is because you know those are symbols not
to eat. Another is either in the news the solution is that the company holds the key to the incinerator a secret they don't want anybody to know about. The company at birth or the goose to eat him and the other is the goons to instigate it to getting Canadians in there is always a good. Guys we can see by the hundreds and hundreds of people here today and a lot of people here you can see some of that. Mujahedeen they say in the Dell they were going to use the cell this is the one who forgot that is the silly but that is the commode and today is the first time ever.

Following this rally will drive in our cars and go up to cameras and send them a message that they know how we feel ya know Must I mean not only is that one sentence you must assume the seal of the guards doing the killing going to yield. Imma go to but I feel it's been so many photos. I mean the kid look at him move over California communities are fighting incinerators and they are winning in East Los Angeles. The government gave very much high today and then a government agency rules in our neighborhoods and now we are willing. To go. He's going to put me on the problem of those Commodus is the bundle in the goods to read in the vid in this audience Commodus the books because the Hidden property improved is can you list a little funky list to give your know

So we stand with you in your struggle and together we will stop the unseen and his conflict and some of the others. You can leave the console him into needless bombs on it than it is to skim a lot is. Going to sit in the can seen almost any thought of you most as you know and
