Hunter's Point Power Plant
After literally decades of community organizing, various community leaders have finally succeeding shutting down the Hunter's Point power plant which has dumped tons of toxins into the predominately black and poor neighborhood of Hunters Point. The pollution is so rampant that over 40% of children that grow up in Hunter's Point suffer from asthma. Shutting down the plant was truly a monumental accomplishment, and not surprisingly, the SF politicos we're out the other day trying to take the credit with a fancy party and a photo-op at the plant. My friend Rob and I tried to get in to cover the event. We couldn't. This is what we were able to get.
