Detroit Incinerator Snuffed

In June, following the US Social Forum, hundreds of activists in Detroit marched against this incinerator. Now it has been shut down.

Friday October 8, 2010

“The trash burner in Detroit has been turned off – for now. On Friday October 8, 2010 the Detroit incinerator shutdown from “economic factors”. It has been a financial failure, an environmental failure, a public health failure, a public services failure, a city budget failure – a failure by undermining the fundamental needs and rights of the people of Detroit.” -Brad van Guilder, Ph. D. Ecology Center – SE MI Organizer
