Gus Featured in DNAinfo Article on Marine Transfer Station Safety Violations

Gus was featured in a DNAinfo article, “Trash Station Workers Ignored Safety Rules Before Chisel Broke Window,” that highlighted a recent safety violation with the construction of the 91st Marine Transfer Station, which resulted in the injury of an Asphalt Green employee. Incidents like this are why Gus is so vehemently opposed to the construction of the Marine Transfer Station, and why he was willing to get arrested in protest of it. The article highlighted a speech Gus recently gave describing his experience with civil disobedience:

“The time for being nice is coming to a close,” Pledge 2 Protect volunteer Gus Christensen told residents at the meeting. “We need to speak the language that today’s City Hall understands, and that language is civil disobedience.”
