Enviro-Mich message from CSim592951@aol.com

Everyone from SE Michigan is invited to come and show your support at noon on 
Saturday May 5, for the parents of McMillan Elementary School students who 
are being forced to send their kids to the new Beard School which is being 
constructed on a toxic dump site. Historic McMillan Dual Purpose 
Multicultural School is the oldest elementary school in Detroit, circa 106 
years, has high quality programs and 4 generations of alumni in the community 
who support the school. 

At least 8 construction workers on the new site have become ill because of 
their exposure to contaminants and have also passed the illness to their 
families. The site has not been completely tested nor remediated to the 
satisfaction of environmentalists. Yet, the School Superintendent insists on 
sending the students to the new building when school opens in September. 

The parents and students will assemble for a symbolic human chain at noon at 
615 So. West End, between W. Jefferson and Fort Street in SW Detroit.
