After national celebrities stopped in East Palestine, Ohio, to have their photos taken with local residents who continue to suffer the effects of derailed train cars carrying toxic chemicals from exploding, local residents they start forming their own group, knowing that the news cycle will end soon with little or no help from the US government or the corporations that caused this disaster.
The NY Post published a great investigative report this past weekend that is getting a lot of attention in the alternative media today as they interviewed local residents.
One such resident is Jami Cozza, who has now partnered with River Valley Organizing and held her own “town hall” meeting with local residents.
Leading the charge to fight for the community is Jami Cozza, 46, a lifelong eastern Palestinian who has 47 close relatives here. Many of them are facing health problems due to the chemical fire and the psychic toll on their city becoming, in the words of a scientist who visited the area on Thursday, the new “Canal of the love”, a reference to the neighborhood of Niagara Falls, New York. which became a problem in 1978 because people got sick from living on top of a contaminated waste dump.
Even as famed environmental activist Erin Brockovich held a town hall Friday night, many residents say the fierce and forceful Cozza beat her to a pulp.
“I’ve known Jami my whole life and she’s very sharp,” Jason Trosky, 47, a lifelong resident of East Palestine, told The Post. “We’re lucky to have her. Brockovich came with her lawyer in tow. Will she help? Maybe, but also try to stay relevant. Jami will be here for us after the circus leaves town.”
Cozza, 46, who has lived in this small Ohio Valley town near the Pennsylvania border for most of her life, has her work cut out for her.
Tears fill her eyes as she talks about how her 91-year-old widowed grandmother tried to clean the chemicals from the furniture in the house she’s lived in for 56 years, before giving up and moving into a one-bedroom hotel where I couldn’t. sleep at night
“My fiance was so sick I almost took him to the hospital,” Cozza told The Post as she sat on the porch of her aunt’s East Clark Street home a few hours before leading her own gathering of the town hall on Thursday.
“I am not only fighting for the life of my family, but I feel that I am fighting for the life of the whole town. When I’m walking around listening to these stories, they’re not about people. They are from my family. They are some of my friends that I grew up with,” he said. “People are desperate right now. We are slowly dying. Little by little they are poisoning us.”
Although President Trump, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, former US Sen. Tulsi Gabbard and Brockovich visited East Palestine last week, Cozza and other residents said they know the media spotlight will fade. She’s determined to keep the pressure on when her town is old news.
“We will not be silent,” he said. “We are not weak, but we need support. We are here for the long haul. Trump came here and then he left. What will it do for us, really?
We will do it ourselves and we are organizing from the ground up.” (Source.)
River Valley Organizing, the group Jami Cozza works with, has been in the community trying to fight corporate tyranny for years. From their website:
Our beautiful valley is polluted by petrochemical waste, our communities are polluted by poverty, and our friends and neighbors are polluted by the drug companies making money selling us drugs and the prison speculators making money locking us up. Economic disinvestment, racism and disenfranchisement make our peoples ripe for exploitation by corporate interests hell-bent on profit, with no regard for human life, a healthy environment or communities sustainable
Cozza has a message for his fellow residents, and it’s a message that ALL of America needs to hear right now if we’re going to succeed in building community support to fight the globalists, and that message is that we need put aside our political differences and come together to fight against the corporations we are all at war with today.
Cozza and the hundreds of residents at a town hall organized by Cozza and River Valley Organizing have not been impressed by the railroad company’s efforts to help the city, especially the $1,000 checks, which several residents told The Post were only receive after signing something saying I wouldn’t ask for more.
“I don’t care if you hate me because I hit you years ago or not,” Cozza said at the town meeting under a large sign that read “Make Norfolk Southern Pay!”
“We must put aside all our differences and show the world that we are strong in East Palestine. We are at war with corporate greed. We need accountability and we need answers. We are here to make our city safe. And by the way, we are not say we’re not getting sick, it’s all in our heads. We’re getting sick.” (Source.)
Instead of relying on the railroad or the government to identify the problem, Cozza and River Valley Organizing brought in their own panel of experts, with some pretty impressive credentials.
Cozza’s hearing included a panel with University of Pittsburgh scientists, an environmental attorney and a veteran Ohio hazardous materials expert. None of them painted an optimistic picture of the city’s future, despite Norfolk Southern’s insistence that the area is safe and will be cleaned up and tested further.
Experts listened as desperate residents asked about the safety of breastfeeding their babies and getting water from their wells. Planting season is approaching soon in an area where many cultivate. One woman wept as she spoke of her concern for her pregnant goats.
Stephen Lester, a Harvard-educated toxicologist at the Center for Health, Environment and Justice with 40 years of experience, said the hot spot in eastern Palestine was one of the most troubling he had ever seen, stressing the dangers of the chemical dioxin that was found. released during the controlled burn and will be embedded in the soil and water.
“Until the government takes this seriously there are going to be real problems,” Lester said. “It is criminal that the EPA did not come forward with information on dioxin and did not begin testing for it.” (Source.)
Here is a short update I put together from on-the-ground interviews with people in East Palestine and how they are suffering.
