I visited the Cambridge Common yesterday and got photographs.
All the returning city councilors including Leland Cheung voted for massive destruction here. I have provided the current city council with photographs of the outrage. They are “neutral” on this destruction and the entire city council is “neutral” on the destruction of hundreds of trees on the Charles River, while planning their own destruction on the banks of the Charles as part of the Grand Junction highway proposal.
The big difference I saw was the construction of what looks like quite a permanent woven fence on the end of the destruction area away furthest away from Harvard Square.
I have reported on this outrage as it progresses. I started with the orange markings on the condemned trees. That followed with slats protecting the trees safe from this outrageously destructive city government.
Individual members of the Cambridge City Council have been receiving almost all email version of these reports for quite awhile now. They are encouraged to show me any errors I am making.
My interpretation is that, except for the first photo, every tree in these photographs which does not have slats on it is condemned.
The first photo is the undamaged view of the Cambridge Common from the Harvard Square entrance. The immediately following photo is the same trees viewed from the inside of the common yesterday.
Look very carefully. It would appear that this very irresponsible city council including the candidate for Lieutenant Governor is destroying more trees in this end of the Cambridge Common than they are refraining from destroying.
Please see YouTube for my video report on this outrage including photos provided to the Cambridge City Council, at http://youtu.be/FgQ9ojVuMxM.
The plans, also provided to the Cambridge City Council, for destruction of hundreds of trees on the Charles River, funded by $20 million from the State House are provided in a link quoted the information page to the YouTube posting at http://youtu.be/_5AvCUULcXo.
See YouTube, as well, for my report on the position of the Cambridge City Council, including Leland Cheung, on heartless human abuse by the former City Manager. Judge, jury, and appeals court panel found reprehensible his destruction of the life of Malvina Monteiro because she filed a civil rights / women’s rights complaint. The members of the Cambridge City Council, including Leland Cheung, did not publicly, as far as I know, express the slightest concern for the heartless treatment of Malvina Monteiro, thus squarely placing themselves on the side of heartless human abuse, in addition to heartless animal abuse. The posting is at http://youtu.be/_5AvCUULcXo. The posting, in the information page, includes cites to the decisions of the trial judge and the appeals court panel, although the appeals court panel was so disgusted with the City of Cambridge that it refused to honor them by calling the panel's opinion an opinion.
