I attended the 11/14/12 and 11/15/12 US Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA)  Grasse River Superfund Site clean-up meetings in Massena
and Akwesasne with the intention of questioning government
environmental health scientists on the subject of failure to provide
the populations which reside in the vicinity of persistent organic
pollutants (POPs) contaminated sites in the St. Lawrence River Valley
with a warning of the POPs exposure health hazard constituted by
contamination of the mainstream food supply.  The first one of these
meetings turned out to be a party attended by ALCOA, local politicians
and government employees.  Everyone was smiling and much laughter
could be heard in the board room of the Massena Municipal Building.  I
felt offended by this showing of disregard for the suffering of
wildlife and human beings that had been caused by the poisoning of the
Grasse River and the much resisted effort to initiate clean-up of the
site.  During the hour prior to the start of the second of these
meetings, which took place in the Massena High School, I danced and
spoke out in protest against the corporate/government culture
deceptions that were being promoted at this event.  I concluded my
protest performance once the meeting began.  Many Massena business
people and politicians spoke in favor of the limited clean-up that was
being proposed by EPA and promoted by ALCOA.  There were nearly 200
people at this meeting.  Only four people, including myself spoke on
the subjects of the less than acceptable clean-up that was being
proposed or expressed any concern for better protection of public
health.

The two meetings that took place at Akwesasne were very different.
These were meetings attended by considerable numbers of First Nations
people.   The First Nations participants outnumbered the whites in
attendance.  The energies of these two Akwesasne meetings were
absolutely wonderful to feel.  These meetings were all about people
standing up for the protection of Earth and the inhabitants of the
Earth.  The goodness and strength of character of the people of
Akwesasne made these meetings powerful steps upon the path of bringing
an end to the abuse of the Earth by greed driven corporations and
their government underlings.  The people of Akwesasne were unified in
their demand that the industrial contaminants be totally removed from
the Grasse River and the surrounding lands.

With such wonderful people to share energy with, I spoke the words of
bringing out the Truth about federal government deceptions concerning
POPs exposure and disease.  I questioned the EPA scientists and the
New York State Department of Health (DOH) public health educator on
the subject of the educational outreach that had been conducted at
Akwesasne describing the harm that is associated with the presence of
the PCBs and other industrial contaminants in the environment.  I
established the fact that this educational outreach had been limited
to elucidating the PCB exposure health risk associated with consuming
fish from the Grasse and St. Lawrence rivers.  I asked for an answer
to the question of why no educational outreach had taken place on the
subject of mainstream food supply POPs contamination, considering the
loss of local wild caught fish as a food source.  The less than
truthful government people who attempted to answer this question took
the position that they were not the proper people to be discussing
this matter due to their lack of expertise and that their particular
agencies were not responsible educating on the subject of mainstream
food supply contamination.  I countered this by stating that the EPA
risk assessment scientist, Dr. Marion Olsen possessed expert knowledge
on the subject under discussion and that the mandate of both EPA and
DOH was to protect public health.

After much argument, it was conceded that we held diametrically
opposed views of the matters in question.  I believe that my words
moved the human race forward upon the path of achieving full awareness
of the deceptions perpetrated by corporations and government involving
the role of chemical exposure in disease causation.  The Truth is
coming out about the poisoning of the Earth and the inhabitants of the
Earth.  The Truth is coming out about the efforts of corporations and
government to hide the Truth about the disease epidemics that have
been caused by this poisoning.  These great Truths will serve as the
foundation of a worldwide environmental revolution.  This revolution
is already swirling around us.  Yes!
