On Thursday September 20 at 7 PM at Faneuil Hall there will be a hearing on the State Court's mandated restudy by NIH of the Biocontainment Lab 4 in Boston.
Our lawyers feel it is VERY IMPORTANT to fill this hall with people who object to this biolab being built in the South End. You may testify if you wish so be there early-but it is not necessary to testify. JUST BE THERE.
IN THE PAST BU HAS PACKED THE HALLS WITH THEIR PEOPLE SO COME EARLY, AS EARLY AS 6:30 PM
The NIH report is over 300 pages long but we hope to send out a summary and analysis. Look for it. There will definitely be a flyer with talking points at the door.
One point we can all raise at the hearing is that while NIH's siting criteria for BSL4 labs include the absence of substantial community opposition, they have been ignoring the community response to this lab for almost five years. Senators Clinton and Schumer in New York have just announced their opposition to siting a BSL4 lab on Plum Island in Long Island Sound. Their reason: it's too close to New York City! It's time our Senators defended our right to be safe and secure in our community. It's time for NIH to acknowledge and respond to our opposition.
