Greens: Close Erie Coke Plant03.22.10

ERIE COKE CORPORATION’S “FLAGRANT DISREGARD” OF ENVIRONMENT SPURS GREEN PARTY OF PENNSYLVANIA TO CALL FOR TEMPORARY INJUNCTION TO CLOSE PLANT

On March 10, Erie residents were horrified by the release of a noxious cloud of coke oven gases and fine black particles as it spread across the city in an industrial “upset” from the beleaguered eastside Erie Coke Corporation.

If this situation were not bad enough, Erie Coke’s revelation in the past month that it has spewed toxic pollutants not previously measured by either the EPA or DEP was described by Freda Tarbell, the DEP’s spokesperson, as “documentation that DEP and EPA didn’t have earlier.”

Giordano Kick-Off a Huge Success03.10.10

Giordano Kick-Off a Huge Success
Campaign off to an excellent start

Philadelphia, PA – Friday night, friends and supporters packed into the Holy Smoke Bar and Restaurant to help kick off Hugh Giordano’s campaign for State Representative.  Giordano, the Green Party candidate, told the crowd why he should be the 194th District’s next Representative in Harrisburg.
