Voting on Nov. 4th 2014 at Lozano Library, Pilsen.

Yesterday the voters of Pilsen spoke; PERRO’s referendum to the people of the 2nd precinct, 25th Ward (where the shredder would be located) asking if the shredder should be opposed passed 84% in favor of opposition. See the results for yourself here.

Congratulations to the community for expressing their view and to the many PERRO volunteers who knocked doors, had hundreds of conversations with neighbors and handed out many more fliers!

No metal shredder next to Juarez High School! Make your voice heard tomorrow…

We can’t allow this to happen in our community…

 

Join PERRO on May 29th to deliver a message to Alderman Solis…

NO DANGEROUS METAL SHREDDER NEXT TO JUAREZ HIGH SCHOOL!

Alderman Solis currently supports the plans of the Pure Metals Company to build a metal shredding facility across Cermak Ave. from Juarez High School.  Such facilities pose serious risks to the health and safety of the surrounding community.  Metal shredders are known to result in…

  • Increased air pollution
  • Soil contamination
  • Pollution of waterways (this facility will be next to the Chicago River)
  • Fires
  • Explosions
  • Increased truck traffic
  • Noise and vibrations

Such a facility does not belong next to a high school and a block away from a residential neighborhood.

Join us for two events on May 29th:

10:00 AM – Rally and Letter Delivery
Alderman Solis Ward Office – 1800 S. Blue Island Ave.
We will deliver a letter to the Alderman demanding he drop his support for Pure Metals.

7:00 PM – 9:00 PM – Candlelight Vigil
Alderman Solis Ward Office – 1800 S. Blue Island Ave.
If by the end of the day the Alderman has not dropped his support for Pure Metals we will be holding a vigil to encourage him to change his mind.

We need your support!  We need to send the Alderman a clear message.
