BVHP fights dirty transfer, development of HP Shipyard

“There’s asbestos everywhere on the base …” – Wayne Lee, inspector, Bay Area Air Quality Management District

Bayview Community Demands Construction Shutdown at the Hunters Point Shipyard

ATSDR determined the Parcel E industrial landfill, the Parcel E Bay Fill areas and on-site soil at the Shipyard to be completed exposure pathways in the 1995 study and identified toxic metals and other compounds to be sources of contamination.

33,000 San Franciscans

Supervisors, your constituents are furious. They call and email me constantly wondering what we're going to do, what they can do and, most of all, what you're going to do. Your constituents, 33,000 of them, demand justice. It's yours to give.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste!

"Prior plans called for 70 percent of the units to be rentals and 30 percent condominiums to be sold. Now the first phase of construction will feature all condominiums."

The abandonment of precaution: A 10-year analysis of health outcomes in Bayview Hunters Point

Sup. Maxwell reduced the seating on the Asthma Task Force this year as she champions three development projects: the Hunters Point Shipyard, Home Depot and the Bayview Hunters Point Redevelopment Project Area, all documenting negative unmitigable impacts to human health and the environment.

Enough Is Enough Rally For Self-Determination Monday 11 a.m. at City Hall

All that it takes to be branded an urban terrorist evidently is to be a "troublemaker": complaining when sewage backs up into your sink or asserting your rights or defending your community in any way.

A failure of leadership

After more than 15 years of “cleanup,” the Shipyard is still a toxic mess – and now Lennar is moving forward to build residential housing on the site.

‘Sophie, you sold us out again!’

Allowing 604 Hunters Point families to become homeowners is not in Newsom's ethnic cleansing game plan.

For Whom are Newsom and Maxwell developing the Hunters Point Shoreline

"One can only conclude that the real and unstated purpose of this project is to create a bedroom community for the affluent while making weak efforts to prevent dislocation of present residents."

In the war of the super-rich on the rest of us … in San...

Many of us see, within the Bayview Hunters Point district and without, strategic similarities in the wars being waged in Iraq, in New Orleans and here in our own home town.

Helen Jones – actor, activist, writer, humanitarian – passes

Fighting oppression will be much harder without Helen Jones. Whether fearlessly scolding the oppressor or tenderly encouraging the oppressed, she could always be counted on to volunteer for a good cause, no matter the sacrifice. She taught us and united us and befriended all who needed her. In everyone who challenges wrong and dares to right it, Helen’s great heart will forever beat for justice, and the stars in the sky will reflect the twinkle in her eye.

Dirty development vs. environmental protection

Under the dirty development policies advanced by the Newsom administration, Parcel D can be surreptitiously transferred to the City and County of San Francisco for industrial development next year and housing built on radiation-contaminated soils.

Redevelopment planning land grab of Shipyard and all BVHP

This new annexation amendment of the Hunters Point Redevelopment Project Area appears intended to clear away the low-income Black population that has lived alongside the Shipyard for 60 years.

The landfill in our living room

The industrial landfill located on Parcel E of the Hunters Point Shipyard is known to contain potentially flammable petroleum products, construction debris, irradiated animal carcasses, human feces and lead based paint, pesticides and solvents.

Stop Shipyard land grab

Residents of Bayview Hunters Point, as victims of some of the most deadly military base pollution in the country, demand instead that the community control development of the Shipyard, once it is completely cleaned up by the Navy.

Who will stop the Navy?

Who will stop the “dirty transfer” of Parcel A of the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard to the City? It’s on Parcel A that the notorious developer Lennar – the same Lennar that built a whole subdivision in Florida on its own dump – can’t wait to build hundreds of new homes.

Betrayal

In his intellectually-impoverished attempts to force speedy development of Hunters Point Shipyard, San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown demonstrates an inhumane disregard for the health and safety of Bayview Hunters Point residents.

Navy, City still blocking Black truckers

While the Navy has spent hundreds of millions of dollars on cleaning up the Shipyard, Blacks have been excluded — denied the trucking and other contracts needed to put bread on their tables.

Navy said to be conducting background checks on activists

More than once, the Navy has been charged with dishonesty and concealment in an effort to minimize the hazards it has created — and not just in Hunters Point.

Hunters Point is yours! Claim it!

A man who lives near the Shipyard called to say he’s been sick ever since the Navy’s 46-acre toxic landfill caught fire last August and to ask if a lawsuit is in the works.
