Tactics in lying.

The falsely named Charles River “Conservancy” has posted on its facebook page a photo of a picnic table at Magazine Beach which has been repaired by its volunteers.

The picnic area is across from the foot of Magazine Street in Cambridge.

The lie is that the Department of Conservation and Recreation and Cambridge intend to destroy that picnic area by closing off its parking lot. The picnic area is used by a lot of apparently Hispanic minorities clearly from less expensive parts of the area. Closing off their parking would, at minimum, force a long walk carrying goods including grills. Closing off their parking is just another bizarre, destructive project.

Last I heard, the falsely named “conservancy” supported the destruction without reservation, with, of course, coordinated support of the city manager related front group in the neighborhood.

And it is only a tiny parking area.
