1. General.

A. An integrated attack on the environment.

The basic purpose of this blog is to protect the Charles River, its animals, its vegetation, its waters and its air from truly destructive state and local governments, and the fake groups that they work through.

It would be foolhardy to think that this problem is limited to the Charles River. The Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation and the City of Cambridge are destroying both the Charles River and virgin wild areas in the western part of Cambridge.

B. Charles River, Abridged.

Massive destruction has been done at Magazine Beach on the Charles River in Cambridge, just west of the BU Bridge. Heartless starvation is being imposed on the Charles River White Geese as part of a public policy of killing off all animals on the Charles River Basin with hypocritical lies whitewashing things. Poisons are being dumped on the banks of the Charles River to keep alive introduced sickly grasses which replace seven acres of healthy grass that survived without poisons for the better part of a Century. Magazine Beach has been walled off from the Charles River with a bizarre wall of introduced bushes. This bizarre wall is the only vegetation bordering the Charles River Basis which is NOT destroyed twice a year. The manager brags that it starves the Charles River White Geese.

Pretty much all ground vegetation was destroyed between the BU Bridge and the BU Boathouse to the east except for vegetation near planned construction work on the BU Bridge. This is the area to which the Charles River White Geese have been confined since the destruction at Magazine Beach. Their habitat for most of the time since 1981 has been a mile long stretch centered on the BU Bridge. The destruction of ground vegetation has been done since a fake protective group started destroying the environment for the Department of Conservation and Recreation.

Massive and very much worse tree destruction is planned. Hundreds of trees are targeted, along with wildlife habitat, between Magazine Beach and the Longfellow Bridge in one of many projects. Federal money has been sought using flat out lies. Governor Patrick seems to have prevented the Federal moneys for the time being but money could very likely be in the state budget.

The DCR brags, translating the fine print, of intent to kill off all resident animals in the Charles River Basin.

C. Destruction of the core Alewife reservation is imminent.

The Alewife reservation is an essentially virgin and massive woods just west of the subway Red Line’s terminus, Alewife station.

This vile behavior is playing out at Alewife with the imminent destruction of the core Alewife Reservation, with logging and clear cutting scheduled to commence in October 2011 and proceed for one month. The big difference at Alewife is that the local fake group, after years of telling people concerned about Alewife to look at everything except the most important pending destruction planned by their friends, has gone public admitting 15 years of con games to be flat out lies by praising the environmental destruction in the Cambridge Chronicle on September 16, 2011, and in a publication on line.

The massive destruction at Alewife is claimed to be for flood storage to protect against two year floods, directly across the street from a massive parking lot which readily could be used for a very large multiple of the flood storage possible through their silly and very very destructive project.

The extreme irresponsibility of the Alewife situation may be seen on Google Maps. Go to, select satellite view, and go to 100 Cambridge Park Drive, Cambridge, MA. Directly above the street is an excellent, virgin wood lands with thousands of excellent animals. The view I see is dated. There is now a scar in the middle of this virgin woods for “preliminary” work that is outrageous on its own, but the destruction is scheduled to be a multiple. Below Cambridge Park Drive and between it and the commuter rail and Alewife Brook Parkway to the east (left) is a MASSIVE parking lot. That massive parking lot can hold a very large multiple of the two year storm flood protection that the virgin woods are being destroyed for.

D. The Cambridge City Manager condemned by the courts for destroying a black, Cape Verdean, woman’s life in retaliation for her filing a civil rights action.

One key person, the Cambridge City Manager, has been called “reprehensible” by the superior court ( with the appeals court agreeing, finding “ample evidence [of] outrageous conduct.” ( The Cambridge City Manager has, civilly, been found guilty of destroying the life of Malvina Monteir, a black, Cape Verdean department head, by firing her in retaliation for her filing a civil right complaint. Cambridge has paid her $8.3 million in response to the court decisions, including $3.5 million penal damage awarded by the jury.

These combined decisions give the self declared environmental and civil rights saints on the Cambridge City Council power to fire the Cambridge City Manager for malfeasance in office without his golden parachute and, possibly, without pension.

It is not too late.

2. Basic Action.

First of all, please friend the Charles River White Geese on facebook.

Secondly, this blog has a link by which you can make a contribution to Friends of the White Geese through Paypal which accepts all major credit cards. Money is crucial to publicize the escalating outrage.

By snail mail, please send contributions to:

Friends of the White Geese
Post Office Box 391412
Cambridge, MA 02139.

Our Financial Director is Ellen Schloss, 978-362-8786,

Fliers are minimal. Print advertisements are ideal. Mass mailings are a dream which might come true with your help.

These contributions are NOT tax deductible.

Workers, telephoning / writing and money are key.

We need leafleters, especially at the BU Bridge, but also at key meetings. Please contact Bob at 617-491-7181 or at

3. Contact the big guys.

The really destructive people on the first ten miles of Charles River and in the most important part of Alewife are the governments, especially the state and Cambridge.

They have a very major weakness. They run around pretty much nonstop proclaiming they are environmental saints, and they have massive organizations repeating these silly claims.

The Cambridge City Government is particularly sensitive because they certainly look like they are in contact with pretty much everybody.

At the state level, the bureaucrats are beneath consideration. The responsible person is the governor. And the worst of the destruction is on state property.

The governor is very likely the one person most likely to behave responsibly. He has already prevented use of Obama moneys for destruction of hundreds of trees on Memorial Drive.

The City of Cambridge is very much a part of the destruction. Moneys come from the Cambridge City Council. The Cambridge City Council routinely tells everybody how to save the world.

The Cambridge City Council brags of environmental initiatives. They vote the bad stuff fast, occasionally by suspending rules to keep things as secret as possible. They then brag about “initiatives” which are next too meaningless. The Cambridge City Council is fully within its powers and its duties to end these outrages.

Communication is crucial, individual and, if possible, on a large scale.

4. Specific contact information.

Contact Information for people to contact:

A long shot, if these people are still trying to stick in Obama moneys is President Barack Obama. Millions of Obama stimulus dollars were requested for destruction of hundreds of healthy trees between the BU Boathouse and the Longfellow Bridge, PLUS being used for destruction of even more goose food across from the Hyatt Regency Hotel. That money could be once again requested. It is normal to find out about dirty tricks after the fact.

President Obama’s email contact form is: His telephone number is: 202-456-6213.

Much more important right now is Governor Deval Patrick.

Governor Deval Patrick is at the heart of this situation on the state side. His managers at the Department of Conservation and Recreation do not merit attention. They are way beneath consideration and are repeated liars.

Governor Patrick’s contact information is:

Email form:

888-870-7770 / 617-725-4005.

It is pointless to contact the Cambridge City Manager. It may be useful to contact the Cambridge Conservation Commission although its members are the Manager's appointees. (One former appointee in a different city agency won that $8.3M legal payment against the City Manager for his retaliation against her when he found her civil rights complaint displeasing. As I mentioned above, Cambridge lost the case and the Cambridge City Council has it in its power to fire the City Manager because of the court decisions.)

The Cambridge Conservation Commission may be reached by e-mail:
Director Jennifer Wright, jwright@CambridgeMA.GOV; telephone: 617-349-4680.

The Cambridge City Council and other city officials and their supporters dismiss concerns about these environmental outrages to the extent they comment at all. 2011 is, however, an election year and voters need to know where the candidates stand.

Rationale behind this list may be found at: in section 3, Distinction among the bad guys.

It is our opinion that, in order to end the attacks on the Charles River, and possibly Alewife as well, the Cambridge City Manager must be fired.

The Cambridge City Council has a very strong court opinion calling the City Manager “reprehensible” for civil rights violations. We have posted that opinion at, and have a YouTube analysis at: This analysis is dated because it was made before the Appeals Court decision.

The Appeals Court decision affirming the Superior Court was handled in such a manner that the Court communicated disgust at Cambridge for the appeal be refusing to file a formal opinion. It is posted at

The City of Cambridge has paid $8.3 million so far because of the court decisions, which, we understand will increase to over $10 million including everything.

5. Estate Planning and the Charles River White Geese.

A very major defect in Massachusetts law has existed concerning binding transfers for the benefit of animals.

The state legislature and the governor have recently added Chapter 203, section 3C to the General Laws.

Under this wording, trust conveyances can be made for the care of animals alive during the donor’s lifetime. The money cannot be retained beyond the death of the last surviving animal alive during the donor’s lifetime (legally important words). I have recently had a report by a caregiver of White Chinas living into their 30's.

Almost all of the Charles River White Geese have the appearance of White China Geese or of Emden Geese or of their progeny.

The trust can be created during the donor’s lifetime or by will at the time of death.

For the specific language of the change, please see:

Thank you in advance for whatever you can do.
