Bimal Nepal Video in Homage to the Charles River White Geese

Bimal Nepal Video in Homage to the Charles River White Geese: .

1, Video of beautiful animals.
2. Limited History.
3. The plans, related photos.
4. What to do.


1. Video of beautiful animals.

I found a new video on the 38 year resident Charles River White Geese.  It is a few years old, but I have not seen it before.  There are a lot of homages to the Charles River White Geese on the Internet.

The video is entitled: “White Geese: Charles River Cambridge, Massachusetts.”  It is by Bimal Nepal, Photographer, it is posted at https://www.facebook.com/NepalPhoto/videos/996539797085998/.

Here is a still from the video.



The video combines a good view of the gaggle in a portion of the Destroyed Nesting Area of the 38 year resident Charles River White Geese which has a history and which is threatened using corrupt tactics.

This tiny area is all that remains of a habitat which extended a mile or so on the northern (Cambridge) bank of the Charles River, centered on the BU Bridge.  A very major and beautiful tourist attraction bringing in admirers from around the world and Boston suburbs; admirers as diverse as the maker of this filmed homage.


2. Limited History.

This portion was thickly vegetated with the sort of habitat which is excellent for wild animals.  It did not resemble the gardens the destroyers demand that they destroy habitat to create.  It was habitat.

The large area away from the BU Bridge was destroyed NEEDLESSLY as part of the rebuild of the BU Bridge as established by Department of Conservation and Recreation “planners.”

The area right next to the BU Bridge had to be destroyed for access in the BU Bridge project.  The DCR’s outrageous plans destroyed an area parallel to the ramp next to the Memorial Drive overpass in addition to a relatively limited area which needed to be destroyed for access to the BU Bridge.

The lie was that the state would ameliorate the destruction, but the DCR does not maintain its “creations.”  So silly garden bushes were simply allowed to die and were replaced with the dirt which was created by the needless destruction of this area.

A lot of stones were dumped by railroad workers after the BU Bridge work.  The Cambridge Conservation Commission condemned that work.  So the DCR had them move further from the Charles River than the end of the CCC jurisdiction.  This area is not in the CCC jurisdiction.

Most of the stones visible in this video were deliberately dumped into the animal habitat in accordance with DCR “plans.”

The video gives the impression of one continuous shoot walking around the gaggle of the Charles River White Geese.  It is possible to see one of the added tools of starvation in the video, orange plastic blocking off the entrance to the Destroyed Nesting Area.

The Charles River White Geese did an unacceptable thing through that entrance.  They went through it for food, grass, under the Memorial Drive overpass.  They were responsible jaywalkers.  They would wait on the sidewalk until all cars had cleared, and then cross to their food.  Unfortunately, they walked like geese.  Some dawdled.  That did not bother the drivers.  They admired the beauty.

But they were feeding.  Feeding by free animals is unacceptable to the sick people controlling the DCR.  So they blocked the entrance with orange plastic.

The camera shows the hill under the side walk.  It shows the BU Bridge.

3. The plans, related photos.

This location is key in FRAUDULENT meetings being conducted by the DCR with the blessing of the City of Cambridge.

The location was in the plans for destruction during the January 2016 outrage documented in our video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTplCCEJP7o.

The fraud in the ongoing planning has been analyzed at https://charlesriverwhitegeeseblog.blogspot.com/2019/09/fraudulent-massachusetts-cambridge-ma.html.

The DCR working with the City of Cambridge is planning further destruction and lying about what it is doing.  Nothing unusual.

Here are the plans from the destruction plans for January 2016.


The lines running vaguely diagonal from bottom to top are the Grand Junction railroad.  To the right is the Wild Area.  To the left is the Destroyed Nesting Area of the Charles River White Geese.  The above still is taken slightly to the left of and below the large blacked in circle which denotes the magnificent tree in the second following photo.

Here is a photo of the Wild Area.  The white figures in the Charles River are a gaggle of the Charles River White Geese.  They are looking for what little food has not been denied them by Cambridge and the DCR.


In addition to being part of the last refuge in the area for free animals, the Wild Area is an excellent part of the view crossing the BU Bridge, from which the photo is taken, and from Memorial Drive, vaguely visible above the tracks between the Destroyed Nesting Area on the left, and the Wild Area on the right.  The plans show exactly one tree NOT DESTROYED in the Wild Area.

We are dealing with extreme incompetence.  The people doing the “planning” poisoned the Charles River this year in an expansion of the introduction of poisons into the Magazine Beach playing fields in the 2000's outrage.  Our report on this is at http://cambridgema.iqm2.com/Citizens/FileOpen.aspx?Type=1&ID=2104&Inline=True.  The report includes a sign posted by the DCR admitting responsibility.

Trucks doing the destruction of the Wild Area would travel through the area where the Charles River White Geese are shown in the video, to the left in this photo.

The large blackened circle in the DNA part of the plans show this magnificent tree being destroyed, another part of the excellent view for all.


The tree is above the camera in the video.

As is not unusual in DCR actions, their publicity of their plans is FRAUDULENT.  The announcement says they are not developing east of the BU Bridge.  The BU Bridge is to the left in all these photos, and visible in part of the video.

At a meeting I leafleted, a lot of destructive people showed up to cheer on destruction.  Responsible people did not show up in such numbers.  That, after all, is normal when you have fraud which hides destruction.  The irresponsible people show up to praise.  The responsible people are silly enough to expect honesty from a government which says it is not working in this area.

Slides posted on the Internet found on careful search show the work area running to the right / east of the BU Bridge, to the eastern end of the Wild Area.  Those slides are are kept secret in the meeting announcement.  This sort of thing is called “getting things done” by the terrible type of people we are dealing with.

Here is one of the slides.  The BU Bridge is the downward appendage.  The DNA and the Wild Area is the abutting area to the right.


There are constant views of the Charles River White Geese in this area in the video.  Here is a more noble photo of them admiring the Charles at a location a good distance behind the camera, but still in their Destroyed Nesting Area.


The impending destruction here is comparable to the poisoning of the Charles River by the DCR, link above.

The woman who was the DCR’s agent in the poisoning of the Charles River was recently given a contract by the Cambridge City Council for environmental decision making as part of the imminent destruction of 59 or more trees by the DCR and the Cambridge City Council in the Magazine Beach recreation area, west of the BU Bridge.  The vote included furtherance of her fight to destroy vegetation she does not like which was her excuse for poisoning the Charles.

In another context, the Charles River Poisoner has been called the City Council / a particular Councilor’s“kind of activists” with regard to one of the many SECRET votes taken concerning the Charles by the Cambridge City Council.  That particular SECRET vote saw no other explanation for the vote.

4. What to do.

There is a solution to all this destruction.  The legislature tried to protect state properties from the destructiveness of the DCR’s predecessor on the Charles River, the Metropolitan District Commission.  The legislature implemented this contempt for the MDC by destroying the MDC.  The legislature gave the Charles River responsibilities of the MDC to the DCR and to the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, MassDOT.

MassDOT has been the adult in the room with the destruction, incompetence and animal abuse of the DCR and the City of Cambridge.  MassDOT has been frequently been a shining light, especially when compared to the lack of responsibility of the two entities with whom it has been associated.

The legislature should finish the job on the Charles River.  It should give the DCR properties on the Charles River to MassDOT.

Fraudulent Massachusetts / Cambridge, MA “Hearing” on “Memorial Drive Phase III”

Fraudulent Massachusetts / Cambridge, MA “Hearing” on “Memorial Drive Phase III”

1. Destructiveness, incompetence and fraud.
2. The plans kept secret in the meeting announcement.
3. Photos of the outrage kept fraudulently secret.
4. What should be done.
5. The Cambridge City Council shows where it stands.

1. Destructiveness, incompetence and fraud.

These were clearly displayed in the Cambridge / DCR announcement for the September 25, 2019 “hearing” on Memorial Drive, Phase III.  Destructiveness, incompetence and fraud were obviously demonstrated as reasons for the legislature’s destruction of the legislatures well earned destruction of the Metropolitan District Commission.

The concept for the property for which MDC was a guardian as reflected in its destructiveness was good reason to destroy that vile entity.  The sort of fraud demonstrated in the calling of the fake hearing is not at all surprising, and, really, is the principal sort of tool in “accomplishing” the sort of destruction the MDC’s “planners” have implemented since they moved to the Department of Conservation and Recreation when the MDC was justifiably destroyed.  Destructiveness, incompetence and fraud have been normal in their efforts on the Charles River and, were almost certainly used in the MDC.  Incompetent destructiveness needs fraud to “get things done.”

The description provided by the Development Department for the September 25 meeting is as follows.  It renders that meeting null and void and because of the very key omissions render the meeting fraudulent.

* * * *

The state Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) is undertaking the Memorial Drive Phase III project, a redesign of Memorial Drive and adjacent parkland between the BU Bridge and the Eliot Bridge. The project will include a re-thinking of the pathway systems, landscape/trees, the BU rotary, and roadway space.

The City of Cambridge is hosting this meeting to collect community feedback about redesign ideas and the project process. Input from the meeting will inform the city's collaboration with DCR on the project.

For more information about the Memorial Drive Phase III project, visit the DCR's project website.

* * * *

The Cambridge Development Department in announcing the meeting appeared to be simply quoting the fraudulent description of the project used by the DCR, but the Development Department has been a distressing part of the destructiveness and incompetence demonstrated by the DCR and MDC.

2. The plans kept secret in the meeting announcement.

Here are the DCR’s plan for the BU Bridge end of this typically destructive and incompetent DCR / Development Department project.  These are taken from slides previously used by the DCR in such a “hearing.’

The key to the fraud are the portions of the plans extending to the far right and, at the far right, to the bottom.

The latter extension is the BU Bridge.  The announcement of the meeting is that it concerns work WHICH DOES NOT GO TO THE RIGHT OF THE BU BRIDGE.

The plans in the DCR slides very clearly show work to the right of the BU Bridge.  The work in that area is presented in the fourth graphic, destruction of the last habitat of free animals in this portion of the Charles River.

The broken lines running generally diagonally from bottom to top are Grand Junction Railroad.  The Wild Area is to the right.  EVERY TREE IN THE WILD AREA BUT ONE IS SLATED TO BE DESTROYED.

To the left of the Grand Junction Railroad is the Destroyed Nesting Area of the Charles River White Geese.  This is the last visible portion of their 38 year habitat which has not been destroyed.  The Charles River White Geese are valuable because there are visible and loved, and because there are such long term residents.

Their last abode would be destroyed, at minimum, for trucks to destroy the wild area.  Additionally a magnificent tree towering above the DNA is doomed as well.  Photos below.

They most definitely are not the only wild beings being heartlessly abuse.  They are the most visible victims and the victims who are most connected to the Charles River in Cambridge.  They love it.  This is their home.

We are dealing with destructive people who are aware they are destructive people.

That is the reason for the blatant lie in the call of the meeting.  If they behave responsibly, decent people will react with the contempt that is due to them.

So Fraud.





Here are the plans for that portion of the January 2016 destruction not implemented in January 2016.  The destruction inflicted by the DCR and Cambridge is demonstrated in our video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTplCCEJP7o.  It will be noted in the video that, as in these fraudulent “hearings”, more was destroyed that was kept secret from the legislature when the DCR informed the legislature of supposed prior “hearings,” all of which were located to maximize secrecy, a technique of fraud by the MDC, and followed by their “planners” when they moved to the DCR.



The three slides used in the prior fraudulent hearings all show the area east of the BU Bridge shown in the Destruction Slide from the January 2016 plans as part of the project.  Those slides clearly prove fraudulent the claims in the Memorial Drive Phase III’s description that the project ends, going east, at the BU Bridge.

3. Photos of the outrage kept fraudulently secret.


Destruction fraudulently included in the fraudulently hidden plans are as follows:


* * * * * *

The plans destroy the entire Wild Area, the thick woods between the Grand Junction Bridge (left) and the BU Boathouse (right) EXCEPT FOR ONE TREE.  The magnificence of the Wild Area is a key part of the beauty shared from the BU Bridge.

This view is cherished by folks crossing over the BU Bridge and by people both on the Cambridge and Boston side.  The photo was taken from the BU Bridge.

The plans also continue the destruction of the habitat of the beloved 38 year resident Charles River White Geese shown in the Charles River, DESTRUCTIVENESS, INCOMPETENCE (including heartless animal abuse) AND FRAUD.

* * * * * *


* * * * * *

The MDC bragged about the publicly loved Charles River White Geese in multiple highway signs on Memorial Drive and BU Bridge Circle.

The MDC love for the Charles River White Geese ended with the plans given to them by the administration of Cambridge City Manager  Robert Healy.  Healy, in turn, was condemned by three levels of court for his destruction of the life of Malvina Monteiro because she worked for equal pay for equal work.  That included triple damages from the jury demonstrating its contempt for the situation in Cambridge.

Heartless animal abuse.  Heartless human abuse.

A copycat went around the Destroyed Nesting Area killing nesting geese, and assassinating the leader of the gaggle.

Encouraged by the silence of city and state, he used the Destroyed Nesting Area for a Rape and Murder.

* * * * *

Just more destructiveness, incompetence and fraud.

The Department of Conservation and Recreation, successor to the Metropolitan District Commission, the people who, among so many outrages, poisoned the Charles River by blocking the drainage facilities for poisons first dumped on the Charles River during the outrages of the 2000's, poison usage which is being maneuvered in Boston by the DCR for inclusion in the Interstate 90 rebuild on the Boston side as well.


4. What should be done.

End the outrages.  End the DESTRUCTION.  End the INCOMPETENT destruction of the public properties.  End the FRAUD used to get these very terrible goals.

Through the legislature, replace the DCR on the Charles River with the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, which has been the adult in the room since the destruction of the MDC by the legislature.  MassDOT.  Managing the other half of the MDC properties on the Charles River, MassDOT has stood up to outrages supported by the DCR and / or Cambridge.

Reverse what is reversible of the legacy of the MDC / DCR, including the heartless blocking of access to the riverbanks by the Charles River White Geese, both across from the Hyatt in the January 2016 outrage and at the river’s banks in the SECRET votes funded by the Cambridge City Council.  Let the Goose Meadow and Wild Area return to the last habitat of free animals on the banks of the Charles, and let Magazine Beach return to their habitat, beloved by residence and tourists.

End the poisoning of the banks of the Charles River and of the Charles River.  Rename the Police Station after Malvina Monteiro, the other very visible victim of the judicially condemned Robert Healy.


5. The Cambridge City Council shows where it stands.

Last Monday, September 26, 2019, the Cambridge City Council voted to provide funds to people who poisoned the Charles River with an algae infestation.

Their “reason” for the poisoning was that they were destroying vegetation on the river banks they did not like.  So they rerouted poisons from the area the vegetation they did not like lived.  The vegetation feeds on the poisons.  Rather than end to poisoning of the Charles River’s banks, they blocked drainage facilities which drained off the poisons.  Rather than end the poisons, they rerouted the poisons into the Charles River.

There was another purpose for the Cambridge City Council voting to pay money to these destructive people.  These destructive people are fighting for the destruction of 59 or more mostly excellent trees at Magazine Beach on the Charles River.  These destructive people helped in the destruction of more than 150 excellent trees east of the BU Bridge, in plans which included this latest destruction but which destruction was not implemented.

The payoff to these destructive people would provide the first action moving toward the destruction of six CLEARLY EXCELLENT TREES which are still growing and have decades before they reach maturity.

Here is a photo of these excellent particular trees who destruction the Cambridge City Council helped.


And, oh yeah, the Cambridge City Council also includes fraud.  A lot of its members loudly claim to be environmental saints.

Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation Leaves Open More Destruction of the Charles River

Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation Leaves Open More Destruction of the Charles River

1. Introduction.
2. DCR to “Improve” the Boston side of the Charles River.
3. Proposed resolution.
4. Added Thoughts.

The following is based on a letter being received by the Cambridge City Council on September 23, 2019 and previously received by the Cambridge City Manager.  A similar letter was mailed to the Secretary/CEO of the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, with appropriate modifications.

There is added an analysis below in which I guess that it was the Cambridge City Manager who accomplished the actions taken to undo the in source of the poisoning of the Charles River located at Magazine Beach on the Cambridge side of the Charles River.

The most important difference between this post and the MassDOT Secretary’s letter is that the Cambridge City Council is part of the problem while lying about which side it is on; MassDOT is part of the solution and is a lot more discrete in its public claims.  The MassDOT letter is restructured and rewritten.

1. Introduction.

Thursday evening, September 12. 2019, I attended the meeting of the Advisory Committee which the Massachusetts Department of Transportation has appointed concerning its plans to rebuild Interstate I90 (Mass. Pike) on the south side of the Charles River across from Magazine Beach in Cambridge.

Magazine Beach is the subject of ongoing construction activities which are associated with destruction of 59 or more mostly excellent trees, continued heartless animal abuse and poisoning of the Charles River.  This activity is a continuation of years of abuse of resident animals and the destruction of more than 150 mostly excellent trees between the BU and Longfellow Bridges.  Also currently pending are plans to destroy the thick woods which graces the BU Bridge on the Cambridge side.  Guilty is the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation with support of the Cambridge City Council.

The immediate topic of this post is  poisoning of the Charles River which is the result of an agent of the DCR who has been called their “Kind of Activist” in Cambridge City Council debate blocking poisons  drainage systems at Magazine Beach and causing those poisons to flow into the Charles River.  Here is the relevant portion of a formerly secret map she placed on the record of the Cambridge City Council.


* * * * *

Poisoned drainage area blocked by City Council's "kind of activist" WORKING FOR THE DCR AND WITH CAMBRIDGE HELP is the area bounded by the broken line toward the bottom middle with the leftward appendage.  Parr of a formerly secret DCR map made a City Counco record by the City Council's "kind of activist."

* * * * *

My letter to City Council and City Manager, received by City Manager and City Clerk on September 5, and posted as communication 191 on the September 9, 2019, meeting, entitled “State Agency Admits to Poisoning the Charles River.  Photos of Outrage”, did a very strong job detailing the efforts which this year have resulted in the Charles River being called a health risk because of algae infestation.

The City Manager / City Council letter delivered on September 5 is essentially posted on the Charles River White Geese blog at https://charlesriverwhitegeeseblog.blogspot.com/2019/09/state-agency-admits-to-poisoning.html,

To be concise, in the 2000's, the DCR and Cambridge under the management of a person who subsequently served as City Manager of Cambridge, instituted the use of poisons on the previously pristine playing fields of Magazine Beach.  Cambridge and the DCR use the euphemism “chemicals.”  To keep these poisons out of the Charles, Cambridge and the DCR  spent a lot of money creating a drainage system to keep those irresponsible poisons out of the Charles River.

In December 2017, a woman who has been described as their “kind of activist” in City Council debate led an operation for the DCR which blocked the bigger drainage system WITH CAMBRIDGE ASSISTANCE.  The DCR has posted a sign which brags that the drainage system keeps THEIR poisons out of the Charles River.  The sign does a good job of communicating, but does not mention that their agent has blocked the drainage system and has since been moving the irresponsibly introduced poisons into the Charles River.

Here is one photo of the blocking CREATED BY CAMBRIDGE, THE DCR AND the City Council’s “kind of activist.”  The Charles River is toward the top.  The area between the Charles River and the buildings is the area MassDOT is working on in the I90 project.


Many other photos are available on the above link.

This year there has been more than a month of algae infestation in the Charles River near Cambridge.  The public health warnings have been strong.  This infestation is very clearly the joint creation of the City of Cambridge and the DCR.

2. DCR to “Improve” the Boston side of the Charles River.

At the September 12, 2019, meeting of MassDOT’s Advisory Committee on the I90 rebuild, a female DCR manager presented her plans for vegetation on the Boston side of the Charles River as part of the I90 rebuild.

Following is a MassDOT plan of the project cropped to show the Charles River portion.  The large grey area next to the right is the Magazine Beach playing fields to which the DCR and Cambridge are applying your beloved poisons, poisons which Cambridge and the DCR have now caused to flow into the Charles River.  The green sliver next to the river to the left is the planned parkland.


Publicly, as part of the September 12 meeting, I pointed out to the DCR manager the health hazard the DCR and Cambridge have achieved in the Charles River and asked if she intended to use “chemical maintenance” (I used the euphemism to avoid needless nastiness.) in the park being created on the Boston side.

She checked with an associate in the room and commented that it was too early to discuss maintenance issues.  That would be appropriate later.

A relevant part of the record is the large poison drainage facilities installed in the Cambridge side of  the river at Magazine Beach to keep those poisons out of the river (see map and photo above).  I have pointed out above that the drainage area which was created by Cambridge and the DCR HAS BEEN BLOCKED by Cambridge and the DCR resulting in the creation of a health danger in the Charles River.

At Magazine Beach, the drainage facilities were a major part of the planning to AVOID the poisoning of the Charles River WHICH HAS HAPPENED.

The DCR representative contended in the I90 rebuild that it would be normal practice to defer decision on use of poisons until AFTER the plans for the new parkland are created.  Thus she will tell MassDOT whether she will use the DCR’s beloved poisons AFTER the layout of the land IS ESTABLISHED and it is too late TO CHANGE PLANS to put in drainage facilities to drain off poisons which, AS AT MAGAZINE BEACH, should not be used on the banks of the Charles River.

3. Proposed resolution.

This is copied from the prior letter on the poisoning of the Charles River to just show the DCR resolution which I propose.

* * * *

The legislature started the correction of Charles River destructiveness when it destroyed the Metropolitan District Commission.

The legislature failed in this task when the destructive planners simply moved to the Department of Conservation and Recreation with their vile plans and proceeded to destroy using a new name.

The Department of Transportation has officially performed part of the MDC responsibilities on the Charles River since the MDC was destroyed.  MassDOT has been the adult in a room also occupied by the reprehensible DCR and City of Cambridge.

DCR responsibilities on the Charles River must be transferred to MassDOT by the legislature, WITHOUT TRANSFER OF DCR employees to MassDOT.

* * * *

Nothing complicated about it, except for the destructive government in the City of Cambridge which is clearly very happy with the destructive DCR.

How much more environmental destruction by this destructive entity is too much?  And how much longer will members of the Cambridge City Council claim to be environmental saints in the middle of THEIR OWN EXPANDING environmental outrages?

It should be noted that, after I filed the prior letter, in the days prior to the submittal of this letter, action was taken to remove the blockage which has been in place for 20 months with very severe harm to the Charles River.
I can only guess where the cleanup originated.  My guess is the Cambridge City Manager.  Whether he ran it past the DCR in advance is beyond my knowledge.

As I said, a DCR representative certainly looks like she is taking action to maneuver MassDOT into more poisons on the Boston side of the Charles River.

4. Added Thoughts.

I very clearly objected to City Manager and City Council when this blocking of the poison drainage was created, with multiple follow ups.  It took a health crisis on the Charles River and more of my photos of reality before the blocking of the poison drainage was ended.

Poisons continue to be applied to the banks of the Charles River at the Magazine Beach playing fields with apparent intent to expand the use of poisons, part of a massive outrage co-funded and praised by NINE members of the Cambridge City Council.

Following is the photo I provided in my letter complaining about the pousoning flaunting the DCR’s bragging of the poisons and the letter which is the basis of this report.  The photo shows the reality at Magazine Beach behind the claims of environmental sainthood by members of the Cambridge City Council.  Photo by Phil Barber.


* * * * * *

Phil Barber photo.  Very large trees destroyed with moneys from the Cambridge City Council in spite of funding games designed to let them lie of environmental sainthood.  Structure in rear is the 80 year abondoned bathhouse which the City Council's "kind of activist" has spent years telling people to look at and not look at the hundreds of trees being destroyed on the Charles River.  The City Council vote was one of several SECRET votes taken so that they can claim they did not know what they were doing, or, more importantly so that their voters do not know what they area doing.

* * * * * *

I am under the impression that the Cambridge’s City Council’s “kind of activist” continues to give well meaning people the impression that the 59+ mostly excellent trees pending to be destroyed in this project DO NOT EXIST.  She somehow brags about trees she is supposedly protecting.

But then again, 20 months ago when she was achieving her blocking of the poison drainage for the DCR with Cambridge help, she did not tell people she was poisoning the Charles.  We loudly objected on grounds that she was.  The Cambridge City Council did not want to know.

6. Analysis.

A. General.

The Cambridge City Council, the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation and their friends have a long list of reprehensible environmental destruction and heartless animal abuse.

In spite of the reprehensible real record, key Cambridge City Councillors pretty much constantly proclaim themselves environmental saints.  They have a massive machine running around the city spouting this nonsense in spite of reality.

At least now, one outrage is getting publicity, yelling at the other guy, of course.

That is the poisoning of the Charles River which has been reflected THIS TIME by a month or more of algae befouling Cambridge’s portion of the Charles River.

I have spent 40 years standing up to such outrages with very visible victories.

This latest outrage was documented on this blog on August 18, 2019, under the title, “Charles River:   Govt. Poisons, Algae Blight related to poisons, persist.” at https://charlesriverwhitegeeseblog.blogspot.com/2019/08/charles-river-poisons-algae-blight.html.  A similar letter was simultaneously present to the Cambridge City Council through the City Clerk for receipt by them at their September 9, 2019, meeting.

We have objected to and publicized this latest outrage from the beginning.  The problem stems from poison usage by The DCR and Cambridge which was initiated on the Magazine Beach recreation area on the banks of the Charles River in the late 2000's.  Cambridge and the DCR paid contractors, love those contractors, to create drainage ditches to drain off poisons which they should not even use on the banks of the Charles River.

A public presentation of the DCR concerning the current outrage at Magazine Beach gave good reason to anticipate expansion of poison use from just the playing fields to the middle, park area and the western, pool area.  This would be in addition to destruction of the heartless animal abuse and destruction of 59 mostly excellent trees.  (The latter number keeps growing.)

Several years ago, friends of the DCR, etc., started organizing an annual swim in, falsely stating that the government agencies are on the correct side of cleanliness in the Charles River, rather than the reality in which the government agencies yell at the other guy while the government agencies have horribly filthy hands.

That first one day algae blight occurred

The very first of these fake events falsely praising destructive agencies was delayed by the first day of annual one day algae blights.  That day of algae blight, in turn, occurred the day after the DCR (under its prior name) dumped poisons on the banks of the Charles River at Ebersol Fields next to Massachusetts General Hospital.

This time we have seen more than a month long infestation, rather clearly stemming from the blocking of the bigger drainage pits, blocking organized by a friend of the governmental agencies with the assistance of the governmental agencies in December 2017.  She has clearly blocked the drainage as an agent of the DCR.

She bragged of funding by the Trump administration.

She has been described from the floor of the Cambridge City Council as their “kind of activist” That description of her was the only explanation I recall presented by any member of the Cambridge City Council for one of many recent secret and destructive votes concerning the Charles River taken by the Cambridge City Council.

The poisonings of the Charles River by their “kind of activist” has been objected to to the Cambridge City Council in many of my letters on behalf of Friends of the White Geese.

My latest communication was limited in its graphics to concentrate on the issues and the outrages coming from this destructive City Council and its friends.

Here is more supporting documentation.

B. DCR Sign Explains how its destructive agents poisoned the Charles with the outrage of December 2017.

This sign was posted by the DCR near the blockage.



Cambridge and the DCR introduced poisons (love those euphemisms, note the operative language calls them “chemicals.”) onto Magazine Beach.  There is absolutely no business of poisons being dumped on the banks of the Charles River.

So to keep these totally unfit poisons out of the Charles River, they spent a lot of money putting in a poison drainage system.

In December 2017, they, acting through a woman who has been fighting for destruction for years, BLOCKED THE POISON DRAINAGE SYSTEM.

In 2019, for at least a month, the Charles River has been infested with algae.  Note the right hand column of the sign:

* * * * *

When it rains, the chemicals wash from the playing fields and toward the river.  If the phosphorus reaches the river, it can cause algae blooms that use up oxygen in the water, creating a harmful environment for fish and other wildlife.


Wetlands are the gatekeepers that prevent this from happening.  Constructed in 2009, these wetlands trap and filter out damaging fertilizers that would otherwise wash into the river.


* * * * *

The DCR has proudly proclaimed on this sign how it, Cambridge and the Cambridge City Council’s “kind of activist” created 2019's month plus long algae outrage in the Charles River.

The DCR and their friend blocked the expensively created drainage for poisons which should not be used on the banks of the Charles River.  The reason why the poisons should not be used is THE EXACT REASON WHICH HAS APPEARED IN THE CHARLES, poisoning by algae as the result of blatantly irresponsible behavior by government and friends.

The DCR, Cambridge and their friends did exactly what the DCR condemned in that sign.

7. Selected Communications.

Really, repeating the entire list is out of whack.

My video of the destruction of more than 150 mostly excellent trees between the BU and Longfellow Bridge  is at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTplCCEJP7o.

Destruction was accomplished by Cambridge and the DCR with the Cambridge City Council’s “kind of activist” loudly running around, presenting herself as a protector of the Charles River and telling her victims not to look at the destruction.

This video includes plans for destruction of more than a hundred trees in the Wild Area, the thick woods between the Destroyed Nesting Area of the Charles River White Geese and the Boston University.  The doomed Wild Area dominates the view of Cambridge and the Charles from the BU Bridge looking downriver.

That is going forward with the usual dishonesty.  Here is my post spelling that out.

https://charlesriverwhitegeeseblog.blogspot.com/2019/07/comments-on-memorial-drive-phase-iii.html.

The Cambridge City Council has supported the destruction of 59 mostly excellent trees west of the BU Bridge in the Magazine Beach recreation area.

At last count the city council support of destruction of the Wild Area destruction has increased that  number from 59 to 159 in addition to 150 plus in the January 2016 outrage, and who knows what else is secret.  The euphemism for the destruction of the Wild Area is “Phase III.”

The plans at Magazine Beach when the threat was “only 54" were submitted to the Cambridge Conservation Commission.  I submitted the plans with photos of doomed trees to the Cambridge City Council many times in one part or another.  The basic letter is posted at http://focrwg.com/agenda1.html.

This letter presented the FILED destruction plans by the DCR which project in turn has been increased, by the Cambridge City Council.  The initial vote was taken by the Cambridge City Council in their first policy vote FOLLOWING A CELEBRATION OF THEIR ENVIRONMENTAL SAINTLINESS on the steps of Cambridge City Hall.

This outrage was also presented in the video.

The key woman who created this algae infestation on the Charles River is also the principal person fighting for the destruction of those 59 mostly excellent trees at Magazine Beach.  As usual, she is keeping the destruction secret hidden by words glorifying the project WHICH WORDS NEVER MENTION THE MASSIVE TREE DESTRUCTION.

Now she is publicly bragging about DEFENDING MATURE TREES.  Obviously she is bragging about the LONELY TREES she is not destroying.  DO NOT LOOK AT WHAT SHE IS DESTROYING.  LOOK AT WHAT SHE IS TELLING YOU TO LOOK AT AS USUAL.

These plans have repeatedly been presented to the Cambridge City Council.  The Cambridge City Council has responded with secret votes which have already destroyed trees.  Their secret votes heartlessly attack animal habitat on the banks of the Charles River.  The Cambridge City Council happily shares costs with the destructive state agency.  They split the costs so that the MOST OBVIOUS DIRTY work is funded by the state agency, while the City Council SO FAR destroys trees and animal habitat closer nearer to the Charles River.

Then again, while Cambridge and the state agency were happily destroying more than 150 mostly excellent trees between the BU Bridge and the Longfellow Bridge, the lead poisoner was telling people not to look at that.

One of her fake protective groups barred discussion of the destruction on grounds of lack of jurisdiction as the destruction was about to start.

That fake protective group then discussed whether to seek a payoff from the state agency after destruction WHICH THEY HAD ENABLED had proceeded.

Our video on the January 2016 destruction outrage is posted at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTplCCEJP7o.

8. What should be done.

A. Finish the Destruction of the Metropolitan District Commission and vacate all destructive funds and heartless animal abuse in any manner.

The legislature started the correction of Charles River destructiveness when it destroyed the Metropolitan District Commission.

The legislature failed in this task when the destructive planners simply moved to the Department of Conservation and Recreation with their vile plans and proceeded to destroy using a new name.

The Department of Transportation has officially performed part of the MDC responsibilities on the Charles River since the MDC was destroyed.  MassDOT has been the adult in a room also occupied by the reprehensible DCR and City of Cambridge.

MassDOT has stood up to the destructive DCR and City of Cambridge at important, valuable times.

DCR responsibilities on the Charles River must be transferred to MassDOT by the legislature, WITHOUT TRANSFER OF DCR employees to MassDOT.  Action should vacate all destructive funds and heartless animal abuse in any manner.

B. Clean up the Destructive Cambridge City Council, vacate all destructive funds and orders of support of destructive behavior / heartless animal abuse in any manner.

One Cambridge City Council incumbent has declined to seek reelection.  Incumbency with its vile actions is a strong reason for any knowing environmental voter to vote against all incumbents in this year’s municipal election.

Any candidate who supports the City Council’s destructive actions on the Charles River and vacating of all destructive funds and orders of support of destructive behavior / heartless animal abuse in any manner is unfit to be elected.

Additionally, however, any candidate should be voted against who has been key in supposedly independent environment groups who have endorsed Cambridge City Council candidates with destuctive records and call such destroyers environmental saints.  Key involvement in such outrageous endorsement renders such candidates unfit to be voted for by environmentally responsible voters.

The big ground level environmental problem in Cambridge, MA, is fake protective groups, whether they call themselves local or national (and controlled locally where it counts).

Any candidate who declines to seek reorganization of the state responsibilities on the Charles River and reversal / vacating of all destructive funds and orders of support of destructive behavior / heartless animal abuse in any manner as stated in 8.A, above is environmentally unfit to be elected.

The legislature’s attempt to bring responsible behavior to the Charles River must FINALLY be implemented by initiative from the Cambridge City Council.
