Urban Ring Plans Destructive to Geese; BU Condemns Other Part

Bob La Trémouille reports:

Yesterday afternoon, I attended the meeting of the Citizens Advisory Committee on the plans for the bus / highway phase of the Urban Ring planning.

Their plans are on the Internet. http://www.theurbanring.com/currentmaterials.asp?area=gen is the indes to the most recent posting. It is not up to date.

The plans include a pedestrian / small vehicle highway through the same area where the DCR / its agents just destroyed vegetation and probably / possibly killed Brown Beauty's babies.

The DCR was represented by the environmentally vile Julia O'Brien. She has been a key part of the leadership in the outrages going on in Cambridge on the Charles river.

Boston University condemned part of the plans which they say are destructive to their campus.

I commented that, given the destruction being inflicted on the environment in Cambridge by BU and the DCR and implemented in the Urban Ring plans, it is a pleasure to see these reprehensible, destructive bastards bitterly objecting to "harm" to them.

Years of heartless abuse, years of heartless starving, the first attack on the Charles River White Geese when BU illegally destroyed the nesting area in 1999 (destruction which is a key part of the Urban Ring plans), probably repeated destruction of nests over the years and killing of geese who defended their nests, lying about the Charles River White Geese in their alumni magazine - there is a lot to have contempt for BU for. Truly reprehensible people.

Brown Beauty Mate Alive; BU Destructiveness

Bob La Trémouille reports:

Yesterday evening after the Urban Ring meeting reported separately, I went to the Goose Meadow to demonstrate the destruction inflicted by the DCR / their agents.

In the grass on the other side of the ramp to Memorial Drive were Brown Beauty and her mate.

I helped them cross the ramp when they had had enough food. They have been forced to make this dangerous trip by their access to food at Magazine Beach being destroyed.

In the Urban Ring report, I mention publicly condemning the environmental destructiveness of BU and the DCR on the north side of the Charles.

In addition to the physical destructiveness, Boston University has stooped so low as to print a false statement by a BU related goose-feeder that the Charles River White Geese cannot survive if feeders stop feeding them. The statement is true NOW because BU, Cambridge and the DCR have been so destructive as to their habitat. The statement is a flat out lie if the destructiveness of BU, Cambridge and the DCR is omitted. The Charles River White Geese survived for 25 years living on the food which BU, Cambridge and the DCR have taken away from them.

The lie was printed in BU's alumni magazine. Friends of the White Geese submitted a response which BU would not print.

It is scary to have such a flat out lie printed. It is scarier still to have these hypocrites refuse to correct it.

It is even more scary that the Charles River White Geese are relying on somebody doing such harm to them. We have no choice. The geese need to be fed.

FOWG did the feeding for a number of months until we could find people who would do the feeding, but these two key feeders with their political harm to the Charles River White Geese are most definitely not friends. We are overworked as it is. The geese need to be fed. We cannot do it, but the two key feeders are a cancer within.
