Letter to the editor originally printed in The Olympian.
“People of conscience in the Tacoma area must speak out against the proposed LNG terminal. The facility would be built in immediate proximity to the Puyallup Tribe reservation in violation of the Medicine Creek Treaty. Additionally, the “blast zone” of the plant encompasses other residential areas as well as the Northwest Detention Center; NWDC has effectively no plan to protect the people unjustly detained there if the LNG facility combusts. The health and safety risks associated with the LNG plant will disproportionately impact communities who already face injustice every day. This is a violent project that puts profits over people.”
