Residents Protest Outside of Baltimore

Sep 12, 2022

Residents of Abingdon, a rural but industrial working class suburb of Baltimore, are protesting plans by developers to turn half a square mile of riverfront forest into industrial warehouses and other commercial buildings.

Not only will 200 acres of trees and wetlands be destroyed around the Haha River. Worse, some of the warehouses with all their heavy traffic will be right across a street from an elementary school. Many students there already suffer from asthma and nearly three out of four are eligible for free lunches.
