Santa Monica Airport Air Pollution Protest This Sunday

Bill Rosendahl

From Bill Rosendahl via email:

Dear Friends:

I want to invite you to a special pre-Earth Day event I am participating in with State Assemblymember Ted Lieu, Los Angeles City Councilmember Paul Koretz, Concerned Residents Against Airport Pollution (CRAAP), North Westdale Neighborhood Association (NWNA) and Mar Vista Community Council (MVCC).

In the years since I have taken office, I have partnered with Martin and Joan Rubin, founders of CRAAP, to identify and address the extreme health and safety impacts of Santa Monica Airport (SMO) on the surrounding residential communities.

It has been three years since we first gathered at Santa Monica Airport to protest air pollution. The community has gotten no relief from the horrible odors and toxicity of the jet fumes.

Recently, a UCLA study measured very high levels of air pollution in the Los Angeles community of North Westdale, immediately downwind of the airport. They show that the high measurements correlate to the idling jets.

This time, we will hold our protest in the neighborhood of North Westdale. On Sunday, April 18 at 2:00 pm, we will meet, listen to speakers and then march in solidarity with residents around the area where UCLA took measurements. I hope you can join us.

SMO Airport Rally and Protest
Sunday, April 18, 2010. 2:00-4:00 pm
Meet at the west end of the cul-de-sac of the 12100 block of Sardis Ave. off of Armacost Ave, 90064

Feel free to bring your own signs. Per LAPD, do not bring wood or metal sign posts.

For more information, contact Martin Rubin at 310-479-2529 or jetairpollution@earthlink.net.

Regards,

BILL ROSENDAHL
Councilmember, 11th District
