Cambridge City Council proceeds on Charles, brings ultimate tree destruction total up to 60+

Cambridge City Council proceeds on Charles, brings ultimate tree destruction total up to 60+

1. Phil Reports.

They're finally taking that awful fence down today, but they've built obstructions so the geese can't get to the grass, proclaiming they ate the new shrubs there that died over the winter! There are two or three big tents in the lower bioswale now.

Pretty much self-explanatory of the fence down and the new barriers for fowl to access the grasslands.  That one [strings criss-crossing] is more for small flying birds who would eat the seeds, I would guess


2. Phil’s Photos.

A. Tree number 60 out of 54.



[Ed:  The destruction on the Charles River is kept as secret as possible.  The definitive document is the destruction plan the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation filed with the Cambridge Conservation Commission.  That shows 54 trees being destroyed.  I filed the plans with the Cambridge City Council with a photo analysis.   The numbers keep increasing, except for the excellent willow which was undermined with very heavy rain, lost its footing and blew over with associated very heavy winds. 

[The report is filed on the Charles River White Geese Blog at http://focrwg.com/agenda1.html.  The situation is exacerbated by pretty much non stop lies from the Charles River Poisoner (by various techniques conning the public in favor of all the destruction on the Charles).  She has fought for it all, either by direct con games or Company Union fraud.  She repeatedly lies that she is not destroying trees.

[Total destruction now looks in the 300 to 400 range.  More than 150 mostly excellent trees being destroyed between the BU and Longfellow Bridges east of Magazine Beach.  Our report is posted at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTplCCEJP7o.  This video gives before and after views of the January 2016 outrage with prequil of the current ongoing outrage.  It also goes into depth on the next phase, which has had fraudulent "public meetings."

[The phase in planning will destroy the Wild Area, a thick woods east of the BU Bridge on the east side of the Grand Junction Railroad and the Destroyed Nesting Area of the Charles River White Geeese with predictable to the Destroyed Nesting Area.  This destruction was included in the plans for the original outrage but not accomplished then.]

B. Plus.  Phil.





3. Explanation of new obstacles.

Phil:

This is about as close as I got. The place where they cut away the starvation wall is closed off supposedly to keep out ducks & geese, while the other areas, at the stump and beyond, are wrapped up in a complicated arrangement of overhead twine with things in it to scare away smaller birds. New grass seed there, I would guess. Must have cost quite a bit to string all that up.


4. Background.

One of the Cambridge City Council’s too many SECRET votes for destruction at Magazine Beach involved NEEDED destruction at the Starvation Wall which blocks off Magazine Beach from the Charles to keep the Charles River White Geese from their NOW POISONED feeding grounds where they have spent most of their time for the last 39 years as a loved tourist attraction.

Here is a photo of the Charles River White Geese being fed by DECENT PEOPLE on the first day when the Cambridge City Council and the DCR started to starve the Charles River White Geese in 2008 as part of the many outrages of the 2000's.  The Boston Sunday Globe reported the starving of the Charles River White Geese by the Cambridge City Council and friends with a large report and lead photo on their Sunday Metro Region page.



Here is a photo of the Starvation Wall taken from “From Cambridge to Boston with the DJ Inspire 1 Drone footage,” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sN-OmMzvHhw, minute 7.11:



This is the Playing fields.  The balance of the area currently being destroyed by the Cambridge City Council, the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation stretches way out in the distance.  The Starvation Wall was built running the entire stretch of the playing fields, with one tiny opening., blocking out from the Charles as if they were ten miles inland.  The tiny opening has further barriers preventing access for feeding.  Those barriers have been made worse in SECRET votes by the Cambridge City Council.  The Starvation Wall has been deservedly hated.

The expensive poison drainage ditches which were blocked by Cambridge, the DCR and the Charles River Poisoner is about two third up, following the water line.  Phil uses the correct term, “bioswales” in his reports.

The explanation of the “improvements” in this area was given by one of the DCR’s happiest cheerleaders.  This destructive group did a “swim in” during the planning to brag of the Starvation Wall.  To no great surprise, the Starvation Wall was promised as a “lawn to the river” in the DCR’s supposed holy planning document.  It was changed after the lie served no further value.

Until the Cambridge City Council and their friends installed the starvation wall AND THE POISONS the Charles River White Geese lived and fed on the Playing Fields to the great delight on residents and tourists.

The Starvation Wall definitely needed to be destroyed.  The problem is the usual problem with the destructive people with whom we have to deal, and the REASON for the SECRECY in so many of their votes.  The constantly “omit” stuff they have good reason to be ashamed of.  There are incessant euphemisms.  The much more accurate word is “fraud.”

5. Record of “improvements.”

English translation by editor: Cambridge City Council Funds, DCR work.

The DCR commonly has had lovely explanations of “temporary” obstacles which become permanent.

During debate on this particular secret vote, I believe there was comment on new items being introduced which rather clearly look like obstacles.  Looking at these photos, I am concerned about waterfront areas we cannot see.

Here is a photo of the “improvements” put in across from the Hyatt Regency, where EVERY tree was destroyed.


Try walking over them with web feet.

And here is a photo from about 2012 of an woman overwhelmed by the Starvation Wall.  She is standing in the only opening, the blocked boat dock.  It has been “improved” in another SECRET vote, by adding more obstacles.


As far as the poisons go, the DCR has refused to deny that they plan to dump poisons on their part of the Interstate 90 rebuild on the Boston side.

Cambridge, MA, USA / friends’ poisons continue to ravage the Charles River.

Cambridge, MA, USA / friends’ poisons continue to ravage the Charles River.

1. Latest Sightings Reported.
2. Early Stages of the Poisons.
3. Documentation of Guilt.
A. Cambridge City Council.
B. The Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation.
C. The Charles River Poisoner.
D. The Blockage.


1. Latest Sightings Reported.

Thanks to Phil Barber for catching this.

The Boston Globe has recently reported on its website, at https://www.boston.com/news/local-news/2019/07/25/state-officials-warn-of-algae-bloom-along-charles-river, that the algae infestation which last year created the public health hazard on the Charles River between the Mass. Ave. Bridge and the Boston Harbor is back.

The Boston Globe also reports at https://www.boston.com/news/local-news/2020/06/25/charles-river-toxic-algae that the algae is poisoning and highly toxic to dogs who swim in the Charles.  A lovely sounding entity has expressed concern.  Unfortunately, as is too common, this “saintly protective” organization has a record of constant refusal to recognize the great danger to the environment of their friends in the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation.

One of the biggest subsidiary problems to the highly destructive DCR and Cambridge City Council, are these beautifully named organizations decrying problems and falsely claiming that these environmental destroyers are the solution RATHER THAN THE CAUSE.


2. Early Stages of the Poisons.

Here is a photo of first symptoms of the blocking of the poison drainage (see below), courtesy Phil Barber.  The colored water and the growth are, of course, algae.  The photo was taken in May 2018.

It was taken to the east of the blockage of drainage at the end nearest the Charles River.  See below for detail.


Phil got the following photos of the first known accumulations in the Charles off Magazine Beach, taken in September 2018.  Here are two groups of photos.  The first group is from September 3, 2018.






The second group is from September 17, 2018.  Note Phil's comments.






3. Documentation of Guilt.


A. Cambridge City Council.

The Cambridge City Council has funded the Charles River Poisoner to do more “environmental” work on the Charles River.  This work will lay the ground work for more of the ongoing tree destruction on the Charles River supported by the Cambridge City Council.

The latest outrage funded by the Cambridge City Council would lay the groundwork for the destruction of the excellent grove across from the MicroCenter on Memorial Drive in Cambridge.



The Charles River Destroyer, in addition to her poisoning (see below) has been the most vocal supporter of the ongoing efforts of the Cambridge City Council and the DCR to destroy 59 plus mostly excellent trees and animal habitat on Magazine Beach, located between the BU Bridge and the River Street Bridge on Memorial Drive.  For details, see the DCR plans and my related photos in my June 6, 2016 letter to the Cambridge City Council posted on the Charles River White Geese Blog at http://focrwg.com/agenda1.html.

She, using abusive Company Union tactics was key in the destruction of more than 150 mostly excellent trees, plus animal habitat, between the BU Bridge and the Longfellow Bridge.

The city council did not want to know what was going on.  Cambridge bureaucrats worked on that outrage for about a decade.  My video on that outrage is posted at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTplCCEJP7o.  The City Manager mentioned in the video was the predecessor to the current City Manager.

The video includes preparatory comments as to the Magazine Beach outrage, and includes details of the NOW IN PLANNING destruction at the Wild Area, east of the BU Bridge and the Destroyed Nesting Area of the Charles River White Geese.  Severe harm would also be inflicted on the Destroyed Nesting Area.



The Charles River White Geese are visible in the Charles River hunting for food next to the Wild Area.

In typical fraudulent behavior by the DCR, a “public hearing” was fraudulently conducted which claimed the reviewed project ended at the BU Bridge.

The slides included the Wild Area.

The Cambridge City Council did not want to know about the 150 tree destruction.  They have supported the outrages at Magazine Beach in multiple votes and praised the Wild Area destruction in a carefully worded vote clearly providing deniability.

So they have SECRETLY voted funds for outrages in the Magazine Beach destruction which, in addition to destroying trees, destroying animal habitat by adding new obstacles to the 39 year resident Charles River White Geese resuming feeding at what was their primary home most of the last 39 years.  In addition to obstacles, poisons were introduced.

B. The Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation.

About ten years ago, the state legislature destroyed the DCR’s predecessor in control of the Charles River.  Fairly loudly included in the reasons was the destructiveness of the DCR’s “planning” entity.  Another reason was the failure to meaningfully communicate the outrageous plans.

The “planning” entity of the predecessor organization moved to the DCR with their plans for destruction on the Charles River, and, with the help of Cambridge City Councils and bureaucrats have been aggressively destroying in accordance with those outrages.

It should be noted, however, that initial plans destruction on the Charles date back to 1997 when the Cambridge City Manager’s outrageous plans for destruction were first bragged about by one of the usual fake protective groups.

The extreme destruction started in the 2000's.  Key management was by then Assistant City Manager Rossi.  Rossi was promoted.  He is the City Manager so prominently mentioned in my video, link above.

Funds were unanimously provided by the destructive Cambridge City Council.

One of most prominent of the then destructive members has since retired.  She recently been seen active in the dirty tricks on the I90 rebuild as a Cambridge appointee with a lot of bad action.  She voted to close an ramp to Cambridge from Soldiers Field Road with great possible harm to Cambridge residents.  I managed to reverse that vote.  Her destructive behavior has most definitely not been limited to that.

Dishonesty has common once the “planners” got involved in the Charles.

Notable is the Starvation Wall created as part of the outrage of the 2000's.  It was sold as an improvement for swimming off Magazine Beach.  Its principal purpose was the starvation of the Charles River White Geese.

Here is a photo of the Starvation Wall from the Boston side.  Another of the fake protective groups allied with the DCR conducted a “swim in” to celebrate the way this Starvation Wall would improve swimming off the Magazine Beach Playing Fields.  The Playing Fields might as well have been 10 miles from the Charles.


The opening has a second row of introduced vegetation to prevent access to the grass which has been the food of the Charles River White Geese for most of their 39 year residence.  That has been compounded by the introduction of the poisons which have since been rerouted to the Charles to create the algae blight.  Additionally, by a recent SECRET funding vote the HIGHLY destructive Cambridge City Council unanimously added to the blockade of the entrance for the Charles River White Geese.

The latest contribution to development professionals has been voted for in SECRET funds from the Cambridge City Council.  They have removed a lot of the bushes and installed more subtle starvation techniques.

A good example of the obstacles being installed has been installed across from the Hyatt Regency Hotel destroying a favorite feeding place of the Charles River White Geese.  Looks great unless you are trying to get over it with web feet.

One good example is “White Geese of Cambridge” by Eddie Sarno, at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C2-xSIYrB5o.  He spent an overnight with them at their Destroyed Nesting Area and joined them in an overnight / dawn feeding by them at this destroyed feeding area.



C. The Charles River Poisoner.

This woman is heavily mentioned above.

fShe was distressed that there was vegetation growing in the drainage ditches created to drain off the introduced poisons.  The vegetation had the nerve to be growing WITHOUT CONTRACTORS MAKING ANY MONEY.  That could not be allowed.

The vegetation thrives on the poisons being dumped on the banks of the Charles River so it got very thick in the drainage facilities.  Naturally, the last think any of these destructive people would think of is ending the poisoning of the banks of the Charles River.

The poisons were introduced by the Cambridge City Council and the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation during the outrages of the 2000's.  Prior to that, Magazine Beach was responsibly managed for perhaps a Century.

Here is a cropped photo of the key drainage ditch taken from “From Cambridge to Boston with the DJ Inspire 1 Drone footage” posted at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sN-OmMzvHhw, minute 10.26.



At the top is the Charles River.  Below it is the Starvation Wall.  The L shaped area is the poison drainage facility.  The most important part is the portion perpendicular to the Charles River.  The first photo in this report was taken to the left of the main drainage site, at the end nearest the Charles River.  The Charles River Poisoner was described as her “kind of activist” by one former City Councilor as the only explanation I remember for one of the City Council’s SECRET votes.

There is a second drainage facility to the right (west) it feeds into this facility which drained off the accumulation in such a manner as to keep it out of the Charles River, until it was blocked by the Charles River Poisoner acting as agent for the DCR.  They used federal money during the first year of the term of president 45.

Volunteers were obtained for the work by the DCR falsely calling the project environmentally responsible.  Was using people who are not knowledgeable their only option?

The DCR is currently involved in planning for the rebuild of Interstate 90 across the river from Magazine Beach.  When I directly questioned them on their intentions of introducing poisons there as well, in light of the Algae infestation, the DCR refused to comment.  They insisted on waiting to announce plans until it would be too late to stop them.

The project on the Boston Side is managed by the Massachusetts Department of Transportation which got the bridges across the Charles when the predecessor organization was destroyed to protect the Charles from the predecessor organization.

MassDOT has commonly been the adult in the room when it has had discussions on matters of destruction for which the DCR and Cambridge were fighting.


D. The Blockage.

A lot of vegetation was pulled out of the drainage ditch in December 2017.

That vegetation was neatly placed in plastic bags and left for the City of Cambridge to take it away. 



Interestingly, one of the loudly false explanations for City Council indifference (before they resumed funds) was that this is state land.  Councilors claimed that destructiveness was none of their business (while praising the DCR’s destructive plans) They have since, in votes as SECRET as possible, spent a lot of money destroying animal habitat and trees while praising the DCR.

Here is how the Charles River Poisoner “improved” the Drainage Ditches.

This is the area perpendicular to the Charles in the above drone still.  The black area is yet more plastic deliberately blocking the drainage ditches.  At top is the Boston University campus on the Boston side of the Charles River, with the Charles River visible below it.  The Starvation Wall is lower straight ahead.

Here are some more photo from elsewhere in this orgy of destruction.





And a photo from Phil taken on September 17, 2018.


The big destruction of drainage was in December 2017.  Who knows how many more periods of algae blight and related animal poisoning will be caused?

Section 2 above gives early photos of the outrage rewarded by the Cambridge City Council with Cambridge assistance under the supervision of the DCR with funds from president 45's organization during his first year of incumbency.

More dirty tricks debunked from Cambridge, MA, USA, fighting for destructive Grand Junction commuter rail.

RE: More dirty tricks debunked from Cambridge fighting for destructive Grand Junction commuter rail.

The powers that be in Cambridge, MA, USA, CANNOT achieve the very terrible things they are fighting for in the light of day.  So they keep on trying to sneak in their irresponsible behavior as secretly as possible.

The following communication attempts to bring in to reality YET ANOTHER IRRESPONSIBLE INITIATIVE.  Copy has been sent to the Cambridge City Council.  I would not be so silly as to expect responsible behavior there.  But, by putting it on record, the usual lie that they do not know what they are doing is made that much less credible.

There is one obvious typo in my communication corrected as stated.  The original communication was an email with two photos attached.  The photos are inserted in the appropriate location where the reference is in the letter.

RE: The latest outrage SECRETLY being pushed by destructive Cambridge Interests, Commuter Rail on the Grand Junction.

Gentlemen / Ladies:

I am writing individually and as Chair of Friends of the White Geese, an Attorney General registered non profit defending the Charles River, its animals and environment since 2001.

Enclosed [ed:  inserted] is a photo of the most visible of the many free animals under constant attack by destructive people in Cambridge, MA, the Cambridge City Council and the Department of Conservation and Recreation.  These are the Charles River White Geese.  In the background of the picture is the Grand Junction Railroad Bridge, a key part of their habitat.  They have lived on the Charles River for 39 years.  For most of that period, their habitat has extended for a mile of the Charles River centered on the BU Bridge.



Destructiveness of the DCR, the Cambridge City Council, and their friends has restricted their habitat to an area which was their nesting area.  Massive destruction of vegetation, habitat and food has been to normal from these destructive people.

I understand you are having a meeting this coming Monday, June 22, 2020 at 11 am.

I further understand that very destructive people in Cambridge persist in trying to sneak through the I90 project the horribly irresponsible concept of Commuter Rail on the Grand Junction.

MassDOT has done a study on this matter which was PUBLICLY communicated and received strong negative comment.  MassDOT responded to that strong negative comment and to its detailed analysis which found that commuter rail on the Grand Junction would have no value to anybody except for Kendall Square developers.

So a bunch of destructive people are trying to sneak it through the I90 project which PUBLICLY has nothing to do with commuter rail on the Grand Junction.  EXACTLY WHERE THESE DESTRUCTIVE PEOPLE TRY TO SNEAK THINGS IN.

Such a project would be highly destructive to animal habitat, trees and the environment.

I have posted an analysis of these people’s “achievements” on the Charles River at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTplCCEJP7o.  In January 2016, they achieved the destruction of more than a hundred excellent trees between the BU and Longfellow Bridge AS SECRETLY AS POSSIBLE, business as usual.

Currently they are fighting for and in the process of the destruction of 59+ mostly excellent trees at Magazine Beach.  Friends of the White Geese, of which I am chair, has strongly objected to this destruction in many communications.  The key letter publishes the Department of Conservation and Recreation’s destruction plans with photos of doomed trees.  That letter is posted at http://focrwg.com/agenda1.html.  Significant destruction has occurred.  Destruction of animal habitat at the banks of the Charles River has been SNEAKED THROUGH AS SECRETLY AS POSSIBLE in votes of the Cambridge City Council.

Related to this destruction, the key destroyer proceeded with poisoning the Charles River in December 2017, acting as agent for the DCR, WITH CAMBRIDGE ASSISTANCE.

Here is my original objection:  http://cambridgema.iqm2.com/Citizens/FileOpen.aspx?Type=1&ID=1874&Inline=True, pages 146 to 155.

In 2019 [typo in original, 1999], the DCR, Cambridge and the Charles River Poisoner achieved a declaration of a public health emergency based on this irresponsible behavior.  We summarized that outrage in our letter to the Cambridge City Council posted on line at https://charlesriverwhitegeeseblog.blogspot.com/2019/08/charles-river-poisons-algae-blight.html
.   The DCR’s bragging about the destruction is posted at https://charlesriverwhitegeeseblog.blogspot.com/2019/09/state-agency-admits-to-poisoning.html
.
The City Council letter versions of these blog posts were received by them at their meeting on September 9, 2019.

The City Council showed their opinion of the poisoning of the Charles River by voting funds to subsidize “environmental planning” by her which are initial steps toward destroying the excellent grove across from the MicroCenter.

I summarized after destruction the destruction of the Charles by the Charles River Poisoner at https://charlesriverwhitegeeseblog.blogspot.com/2020/03/developer-hated-non-paid-for-vegetation.html.

They are trying to sneak in further massive destruction between the BU Bridge and the BU Boathouse.  Destruction would include the excellent woods east of the BU Bridge.  That was included in the plans implemented in January 2016, but it was not done then.  A detailed analysis of this project is included in the video, link above, and at http://cambridgema.iqm2.com/Citizens/FileOpen.aspx?Type=1&ID=2121&Inline=True, pages 171 to 180.  The DCR conducted a fraudulent “public meeting” on the project announced as ending going east at the BU Bridge.  The slides showed it extending to this excellent woods.

The plans show EVERY TREE BUT ONE being destroyed in this woods.



[ed:  not in original, but here are the plans]


MassDOT has been often active as the adult in the room with two destructive children, Cambridge and the DCR.  The fight to sneak in this outrageous proposal have been part of that.

I have been active in the planning for the I90 project.  MassDOT is to be commended for standing up to repeated attempts to SECRETLY expand the scope of this project.

I have participated to stand up to the outrages from these very destructive people in Cambridge.  I have decades of experience in transportation planning by the MBTA.  I have two years employment in mid / lower lever railroad management with exposure to pretty much all aspects of railroading.

The I90 project has benefitted from my experience in two major positive changes:

1. It was my idea to close the left turn from the Soldiers Field Road off ramp to the River Street Bridge and to replace it with direct connection from Soldiers Field Road to the main planning area east of the hotel complex.

2. Appointees of the City of Cambridge voted to kill the right turn as well.  This turn is of major importance to people throughout the City of Cambridge.  I objected and did a little organizing.  MassDOT has been kind enough to save the right turn.

MassDOT has resembled the adult in the room with two destructive children (Cambridge and the DCR) in very many Charles River issues.  The Charles River has greatly benefitted form the responsible, constructive behavior of MassDOT.  One of the most important areas of benefit has been killing the irresponsible initiatives of destructive Cambridge interests has been MassDOT’s standing up to outrages such as the current attempts.

By legislative vote, MassDOT should replace the DCR on the Charles River.  Removal of the DCR in favor of MassDOT would be a breath of fresh air.

5. Responsible Solution.


1. Introduction.

Glamour shot of the Charles River White Geese.

This view is from their Destroyed Nesting Area with the Charles River in the background, and the Grand Junction Railroad Bridge at the top.


I have recently taken a lot of photos of the Charles River White Geese in their enforced, food destroyed ghetto, their Destroyed Nesting Area.

The dominating situation at the Destroyed Nesting Area of the Charles River White Geese is the belligerent destructiveness and incompetence of the state agency which supposedly is managing their lives.  That lack of fitness to manage the environment is praised AND FUNDED by the Cambridge City Council.

The Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation bragged about the Charles River White Geese until the Cambridge City Manager proposed a plan to destroy for them their home of most of the last 39 years.

Since then, outrage has followed outrage.  During the worst of the outrages, the environmentally destructive and highly hypocritical Cambridge City Council has been evil.  This irresponsibility has been through silence when outrage was called for, and through outright support, financially and cheerleading, including destructive actions done as SECRETLY AS POSSIBLE.  Destruction has included destruction of most of the formerly mile long habitat of the Charles River White Geese. destruction which is being made worse through the recent SECRET votes.

The Cambridge City Council topped off their outrages by funding the appointment of the woman who created last year’s Charles River Poisoning.  The destructive Cambridge City Council is paying her for “environmental” work on the Charles River.

The Cambridge City Council  is setting the groundwork for the destruction of the key EXCELLENT key grove in the Magazine Beach Recreation Area west of the swimming pool and across the street from the parking lot of the MicroCenter Shopping Center.

Here is a close up of this excellent AND DOOMED grove.  As with so much of the outrage on the Charles, it is difficult to get a panoramic shot of pending destruction.


This destruction is as part of the ongoing and accelerating destruction of 59+ trees at Magazine Beach, the ramping up of poisons there and habitat destruction.  This is part of plans to destroy 325 to 400 trees and animal habitat on the Charles River, of which between 150 and 175 trees have already been destroyed.  The poisoning of the Charles River by the Charles River Poisoner was done as agent for the DCR with funds from 45's administration and physical assistance of the Cambridge Government.

This year, the Cambridge City Council has UNANIMOUSLY reaffirmed its contempt for the environment through an outrageously destructive upzoning of the beloved Harvard Square which will destroy housing, small businesses, historical buildings, the most beloved newish building in the square, and a whole bunch of open space and trees.

A lot of the destroyed uses, it would appear, will be moved to Harvard’s campus in planning at the I90 (Mass. Pike) exit to Cambridge and to the Brighton neighborhood of Boston.  Harvard’s new Mass. Pike campus is visible across the Charles River from Magazine Beach.

Plus, of course, as part of the package, the usual pols, bureaucrats and frauds are fighting for major damage to the animal habitat on the Charles River.

Fraud has been highly visible from key activists in the fight to destroy the Charles River and the fight to destroy Harvard Square.

The Charles River Poisoner repeatly lies by denying that she is destroying trees.  The Harvard Square Destroyer repeatedly denies that she and NINE CITY COUNCILORS are destroying anything.


2. Detailed photos.

A. Approach to the Destroyed Nesting Area from Magazine Beach.

Here are views placing the Destroyed Nesting Area in context.

Here are pages 9 and 10 of my June 6, 2017 letter to the Cambridge City Council and Cambridge City Manager.  This northeast extreme of the Magazine Beach Playing Fields were popular with the Charles River White Geese before the heartless abuse started.  Pages 9 and 10 (after printing the plans) spell out planned destruction in this area.

The Cambridge City Council did not want to know what it was doing, and AS IT HAS IMPLEMENTED THESE OUTRAGEOUS PLANS, continued to not want to know what it is doing.  And both on the Charles River and at Harvard Square are key "activists" fighting and lying for the cause.

On the Charles River, the key “ACTIVIST” is getting paid for “environmental” work even after she has clearly poisoned the Charles River as agent for the DCR.

The Cambridge City Council has made the Charles River portion of this eastern area WORSE and more destructive in the City Council’s recent SECRET funding votes.

You can increase the views by double clicking.  Scans of all pages in this letter are posted on the Charles River White Geese page at http://focrwg.com/agenda1.html.  Double clicking from this base would be more effective.

Here is the view on my way to the Destroyed Nesting Area.

You compare the two.  Additionally, I have since followed up with a lot of photos, which I will use in later posts.

In this photo, the Destroyed Nesting Area is straight ahead.  Those big trees are in the DNA.  The walk would be highly dangerous for the Charles River White Geese.  I do not think they tried it even before the DCR blocked off access as part of the starvation attacks.  However, before the Cambridge City Manager made the initial initiative for destruction, the DCR has signs posted bragging of the Charles River White Geese and asking courtesy toward them from drivers.



Here is a closer view of the area between Magazine Beach and the Destroyed Nesting Area.  The brick structure dominating the photo is the Memorial Drive overpass above the BU Bridge rotary.  The turn at the right goes to the BU Bridge.  The trees viewed after the highway to the right point are in the Destroyed Nesting Area.



Memorial Drive is the boulevard following the Charles River on the north side of the Charles.  It has a counterpart on the south, Boston side.


B. Entrance to the Destroyed Nesting Area of the Charles River White Geese.

Here is the entrance to the Destroyed Nesting Area.  Memorial Drive is to the left on the far side of the off ramp coming from the BU Bridge traffic circle.

The traffic cones are the DCR’s reaction to the fact that the Charles River White Geese had the nerve to cross the off ramps to get the last food not destroyed to them, under the overpass.



The Charles River White Geese were excellent jaywalkers.  They would stand on the sidewalk and wait until the ramp was clear, then cross.  A few of them would, unfortunately, behave like geese and wander on the way to the food.  Boston area Commuters happily waited for them to finish their crossing, with big smiles on their faces in admiration.

The DCR finds the availability of food unacceptable.  So they blocked and continue to block the entrance to maximize the starvation of the Charles River White Geese.

The massive tree which dominates this photo was slated for destruction in the outrages of January 2016 in which DCR / Cambridge destroyed more than 150 mostly excellent trees between the BU Bridge and the second bridge further east, the Longfellow Bridge, plus animal habitat.

It was missed.  It is now slated for destruction in the next phase of destruction.  “Public Meetings” with fraudulent announcement were made, letting lobbyists for destruction know while keeping the outrageous parts secret in the supposed announcement.  Slides included this destruction zone.

Our video on the outrage of January 2016 included full plans for destruction here and presaged the current outrage at Magazine Beach.  It is posted at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTplCCEJP7o, Memorial Drive Destruction, January 2016, final cut.  The Cambridge City Council has publicly praised the destructive plans wording it to allow deniability of the outrage.  Also planned for destruction is the thick woods (minus 1 tree) beyond the DNA, as explained in the video.

The key lie in the original destruction of the Nesting Area was that it was being made into a “park.”  Nobody used it except for free animals, so the DCR has stopped that particular lie with EMPHASIS by the blocking of the entrance.

Initial destruction was by Boston University.  BU showed knowledge of its vileness through repeated denials of guilt.  BU reversed these lies after the Cambridge Conservation Commission condemned BU for the destruction.

Here is the view of the Destroyed Nesting Area as you enter it, after multiple waves of destruction..


The crushed rock is the DCR’s idea of habitat.  The dirt is the DCR’s idea of maintenance.  They have no use for natural growth so ground vegetation is aggressively destroyed or allowed to die, WHILE HUMAN TRASH IS ALLOWED TO ACCUMULATE.

Translation: The DCR is bragging of its incompetence.


C. Middle of the Destroyed Nesting Area.

The dirt at the end of the path is an excellent example.  First fake protectors, paid staff and “volunteers” both fools who mean well and paid employees of the DCR and Cambridge’s bed mates destroyed valuable ground vegetation and replaced it with the DCR’s beloved dirt.

Then railroad workers used this valuable area as a parking lot, rather than parking along the access ramp (as was done by MassDOT workers on the BU Bridge).  The Cambridge Conservation Commission objected.  So the DCR told the workers to move back beyond the line of jurisdiction of the CCC and continued destruction, plus added a whole slew of more crushed rock, showing their agreement in the environmental contempt of the belligerently incompletent DCR.

The vegetation is a mixture of planted AND NOT MAINTAINED shrubs which would be too thick to be useful for the Charles River White Geese and fellow free animals, plus long time vegetation which is the remnants of vegetation dumped on top of native vegetation back in the 1999 destruction by Boston University.

Here is a Charles River White Geese female on her nest in the remaining vegetation from Boston University's destruction of November 1999.


Note the black plastic above the nest.  This is another common example of the DCR’s incompetence.  It has been there for about a decade.  The DCR is too irresponsible to remove it.  They are too busy destroying and starving.  That, to them, is the important stuff.

I only saw one baby during the day.  Others may have been on the Charles with their parents.


D. Core of the Destroyed Nesting Area.

Here is a panorama of the Charles River White Geese trying to live in the formerly lush nesting area in dirt created by the irresponsibility of the DCR, mixed with human trash which the DCR is too irresponsible to pick up.  Picking up human trash would  responsible.  They only pick up vegetation which would make the area livable for free animals and keep the dirt from washing away.


On the left is the formerly lush woods which has been destroyed by the DCR incompetence.  In the middle and to the right are glimpses of the Charles River, where most of the gaggle probably was.  Extending from the middle to the right toward the top of the river is the Grand Junction railroad bridge.  Under most of half of this view are part of its supports.  To the right is vegetation which remains from the Boston University outrage of 1999.

Here is a photo of that vegetation from the river side of the vegetation.  A a number of nesting geese can be seen.  The previous shot was taken from the area near the far end of this vegetation.  Both the dirt and the crushed rock have been introduced into this formerly lush area by the DCR / its friends.


Considerable trash can be viewed.  Irresponsibility on the part of the DCR is one of the things the Cambridge City Council and the usual “activists” are particularly proud of.

The alternative to THIS incompetence from the DCR would be more dirt.


E. The Riverfront.

Here is a view of the dirt and the Charles toward the right edge of the panorama.  Highly common is the DCR’s beloved human trash.  They only have money for destruction.


Three White Geese are visible, right, left and at the water.  A lot of trash is left by the irresponsible DCR as part of their continuing contempt for their responsibilities.  The right goose is probably just resting.

Here is the same view moving the camera to the right.  Visible are the same three plus two others and the eastern end of an inlet in the western part of the DNA.  Plus the Grand Junction railroad bridge and the DCR’s beloved human trash.  The DCR shows their for their destructive bedfellows in the City of Cambridge with all this human trash.

                         

Destructive “activists” MAY get around to doing work the DCR is too irresponsible to do.

The DCR AND THEIR CONTROLLED “ACTIVISTS” find environmental destruction and heartless animal abuse much more useful ways to spend money.


Here is the inlet to the right of the above pictures.


Stones may have been introduced by the DCR which reduce access for the Charles River White Geese to and from the Charles River.

And moving to the right.


Here is a view of the area, FORMERLY HEAVILY VEGETATED, through which we have come.



Moving back to the left (east), here is a nest above the water.  The Charles River White Geese desperately put there nests in the very few NOT DESTROYED areas.



And a goose couple with their baby.  This was the only offspring I saw, but others could be on the water with their parents.


Views such as this were normal on Magazine Beach before the heartless animal abuse became policy integrated with fraudulent claims of environmental sainthood from the Cambridge City Council.


F. PART of the next place the ENVIRONMENTALLY DESTRUCTIVE CAMBRIDGE CITY COUNCIL WANTS TO DESTROY.  Heartless animal abuse and heartless human abuse.

Coming back to the panoramic view, here are a number of geese in the not yet destroyed woods below the railroad tracks.  The Cambridge City Council has plans to destroy in these woods.


The ground vegetation has been wiped out by DCR employees and fake protectors since destruction on the Charles became policy, a policy originating in the office of Cambridge City Manager Healy starting in 1997.

Healy, during the same period as working for heartless animal abuse on the banks of the Charles River was involved in heartless human abuse of black female Cape Verdean department head Malvina Monteiro because she had the nerve to demand equal pay for equal work.

Animal abusers frequently graduate to humans.  Healy was condemned by three levels of court in awards which along with costs exceeded ten million dollars.  A copycat is in jail for rape and murder of a woman in this location.

The Cambridge City Council showed their impression of City Manager Healy by naming the police station after him.

The human killer had been killing nesting geese in the area, culminating in the killing of the leader of the gaggle.  Responsible people demanded the Cambridge City Council end the outrage.  The Cambridge City Council spent an hour discussing the rape and murder but they did not want to know where it happened.

The ninth member briefly mentioned the location, swallowed her words and looked around guiltily.  She retired from City Council and has been active in the currently accelerating outrages, ON THE DESTRUCTIVE SIDE, OF COURSE.

Our photo at the beginning of this report showed the Charles River White Geese in the Rape location, DIRECTLY BEHIND THE CAMERA IN THE ABOVE PHOTO.  Here is another copy.



The portion of the Grand Junction Railroad Bridge above their heads is close to or the actual location of the murder by the City Manager / DCR’s copycat.


For the opinion of the Trial Judge calling Healy’s behavior “REPREHENSIBLE,” see http://charlesriverwhitegeeseblog.blogspot.com/2009/04/judge-issues-decision-denying.html.

For the Appeals Court panel’s opinion called not an opinion, see http://charlesriverwhitegeeseblog.blogspot.com/2011/08/appeals-court-decision-in-monteiro.html.  The panel refused to dignify the Cambridge Appeal by calling their opinion an opinion.  This was pretty much as strong a communication of contempt for the Cambridge City Manager and for the Cambridge City Council as could be imagined.

The Cambridge City Council showed its attitude for Healy by naming the Police Station after him no particularly long after receiving these formal communications of contempt for him.


3. Related and Coming Major Outrages.

Cambridge and the DCR have plans to destroy the thick woods on the other side of the Grand Junction Tracks.

The DCR used corrupt tactics to conduct what it will lie was a public hearing on the destruction.  A unanimous Cambridge City Council, hiding behind the corrupt tactics, praised the planned destruction.  This thick woods is a candle in the darkness on the Charles River.  It is doomed along with so many other outrages.


The destruction on Magazine Beach, the pending destruction in this area, and the outrage of January 2016 are part of a coordinated pattern of destruction dating back to the plans first announced in 1996 by the Triply Court condemned City Manager Robert Healy.

Total tree destruction coming or accomplished between the River Street Bridge and the Longfellow Bridge on the Charles River would appear to be 325 to 400 mostly excellent trees.  The destruction on Magazine Beach is 69 or more mostly excellent trees.  The Wild Area, next to the Destroyed Nesting Area will be reduced to one tree according to the plans.

Here is the relevant destruction plan, showing both the Destroyed nesting Area (left) and Wild Area (right).


The destruction in the Destroyed Nesting Area is far less than the destruction planned for the Cambridge City Council.  In addition to the destruction of that excellent tree (above in section 2.B) and others in the destruction plan the Destroyed Nesting Area will be used as a highway for trucks to truck off the very ground under these excellent trees.

Our video detailing the January 2016 outrages, with coming outrages (including this area) is at https://youtu.be.com/h_u-woTPRJ8.

That part of the DCR plans for Magazine Beach which were praised by the Cambridge City Council and then partially funded WITH GLOWING PRAISE are included in my letter to the Cambridge City Council of June 6, 2017 are posted on the Charles River White Geese’ page at https://youtu.be.com/h_u-woTPRJ8.  The Cambridge City Council, as is their custom does not want to know the public records of the destruction they are praising and partially funding.


4. Context.

The following photos are cropped stills taken from drone footing pasted at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sN-OmMzvHhw, From Cambridge to Boston with the DJ Inspire 1.

A. Taken from minute 10.54.

Is the following still showing the BU Bridge in the lower right.

To the left is the BU Rotary under Memorial Drive.  To the right is Boston University.

Dominating the still is the Charles River.

Under the BU Bridge is the Grand Junction Railroad Bridge.  Triangulated by the Grand Junction Railroad Bridge, the BU Bridge and Memorial Drive is the Destroyed Nesting Area of the Charles River White Geese.

The thick woods above the Destroyed Nesting Area is the Wild Area, the magnificent woods which the DCR and the Cambridge City Council want to destroy.  Between the Destroyed Nesting Area and Memorial Drive is the on ramp from the BU Bridge Traffic Circle to Memorial Drive.

At the bottom leading to the on ramp is the area between the Destroyed Nesting Area and the Magazine Beach Recreation area shown in the first few shots in the report.



B. Taken from minute 10.02.

Is the western / central portion of the Magazine Beach Recreation Area.

At the top of the still is Harvard University’s future Mass. Pike Campus, the location to which NINE DESTRUCTIVE MEMBERS of the Cambridge City Council are paying Harvard to move much of Harvard University’s Harvard Square Campus.

Most of the 59+ mostly excellent trees at Magazine Beach being destroyed by the Cambridge City Council and the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation are in this still.  The thick woods in the middle are the part most outrageously planned to see destruction and have already seen irresponsible destruction.

The building above this thick woods is the Magazine Beach Swimming Pool.  Between it and the Charles River is the area where the Cambridge City Council is paying the Charles River Poisoner to do “environmental” work preparatory to the destruction of the thick grove west of the Swimming Pool’s bathhouse.  The building across from the bathhouse is MicroCenter.  Its parking lot is above (west) of that building.



5. Responsible Solution.

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation has also been active on the Charles.  MassDOT is not perfect, but, when MassDOT has been working on the same matters as the Destructive Duo of Cambridge and the DCR, the impression has commonly been that of an adult in a room with two destructive children.

MassDOT should be appointed as replacement for the DCR on the Charles River.  The Cambridge City Council has the power to initiate the transfer in Cambridge through the legislature under the Home Rule provisions in the Massachusetts Constitution.

The Charles River deserves a chance of responsible behavior from governmental agencies.
