(Before It's News)

‘Environmental Justice’ is a code word for attacking political enemies. Did this lizard investigate the injustice that transpired when the EPA fouled the Animas river?

Barack Obama: “Elections have consequences”.

Michelle Roberts, national co-coordinator of the Environmental Justice Health Alliance, said Thursday that Ali “played a significant role on the issue of environmental justice” by advocating within the EPA on behalf of low-income Americans and those of color.”

Mustafa Ali is leaving the Environmental Justice section of the EPA

Mustafa Ali, the founder of the EPA’s “environmental justice office” has resigned from the agency:

I never saw in the past a concerted effort to roll back the positive steps that many, many people have worked on through all the previous administrations,” he said in an interview, according to the Washington Post. “I can’t be a part of anything that would hurt those [disadvantaged] communities. I just couldn’t sign off on those types of things.”

Ali said he hasn’t seen much from the Trump administration on environmental justice concerns. “I hadn’t seen any positive movement in relationship to vulnerable communities,” he said. “I hadn’t seen yet any engagement with communities with environmental justice concerns.”
