News:  San Francisco Green Party opposes current development of
"Parcel A"; says land is still not safe for unrestricted use
Source: San Francisco Green Party

SAN FRANCISCO--The San Francisco Green Party announced today that it
is opposing the current plan to develop "Parcel A", a 75-acre piece of
land that is in the early stages of construction by Lennar
Communities. The announcement comes on the heels of long-standing
concerns by residents of the Bay View Hunter's Point neighborhood,
many of whom point out that the land has not been sufficiently cleaned
of hazardous radiation.

"The Navy had a responsibility to clean up this site, and they have
shirked it," stated Green Party activist and Bay View Hunter's Point
resident Charlene Smythe.
