Pilsen Residents say no to Environmental Racism

Pilsen residents in the neighborhood surrounding the H. Kramer ingot factory on 21st street voted overwhelmingly in favor of a referendum to investigate contamination and pollution from the factory. The H. Kramer factory is notorious amongst Pilsen residents for repeated incidents of blanketing the neighborhood in noxious fumes during the night and day. On several occasions residents have documented smoke literally coming out of cracks between bricks; these occurrences underscore the unsavory and unsafe nature of these fumes.
