Bayview Hunters Point Says: WE CAN’T BREATHE!


The BVHP community held a press conference and mini-rally at MLK Park. At some point in the future maybe we will hold a car caravan if the need arises. Read about that here, here and here

The organizers in BVHP have cancelled the car caravan action due to ongoing health risks posed by the fires. Residents of Bayview Hunters Point are already at a much higher risk for asthma and other respiratory illnesses than the general population – which is itself a legacy of decades of injustice and pollution in their neighborhood.

This situation only underscores the intersecting crises we face in a warming world. Thanks to everyone who helped us organize this event, stay safe, and please stay tuned for more actions that we can take together in the weeks to come.

Read more in this statement from XRSF organizer and Bayview resident Blair.
