Cambridge City Manager Group reaffirms its "neutral" celebration of environmental destruction at Magazine Beach

The Cambridge City Manager created group which calls itself the “Cambridgeport Neighborhood Association” has announced the following item for discussion at its next meeting:


2. Update on planning for event celebrating MAGAZINE BEACH. ([omitted] 9am - 3 pm. See separate announcement.)
Please help with this event including $$ donations for operating expenses and your participation, all greatly appreciated and all helping to build community.


This project was advertised as “improving” Magazine Beach.

One of the sponsors conducted a “swim in” to celebrate the improvement of swimming in the Charles as a result of this project.

The project has blocked access to the Charles from Magazine Beach, walling it off with a bizarre wall of introduced vegetation for which well established native vegetation was destroyed.

The project has blocked boat launching capabilities into the Charles River.

The project has destroyed significant parts of the playing fields to create a drainage system. The drainage system is designed to drain off poisons which are being dumped on Magazine Beach to keep alive sickly grass which was introduced in place of seven acres of native grass which survived the better part of a century without poisons.

This project has been an integral part of heartless animal abuse directed at the 30 year resident Charles River White Geese as part of the implementation of the bizarre effort. The state manager has bragged that he is starving the Charles River White Geese.

This group which is planning a “celebration” BARS HONEST COMMENT ON Magazine Beach if that comment, as is well deserved, is negative.

Business as usual in the City of Cambridge from friends of the Cambridge City Manager and the state bureaucrats.

And they get so offended if the expression “environmental destruction” is used. After they do not allow negative comment. And they are so self righteous. After all, celebrating environmental destruction falls in their definition of “neutrality.”
