The Mothers of East Los Angeles at Santa Isabel would like to express their gratitude to the California community for its support against the Vernon toxic waste incinerator. On May 24, The Times reported that Security Environmental Systems abandoned its project to build our state's first such incinerator. This victory would not have been possible without the support of Assemblywomen Lucille Roybal-Allard, state Sen. Art Torres and U.S. Rep. Edward Roybal. Through their efforts, environmental groups such as Greenpeace and community groups from environmentally threatened cities such as Santa Maria, Casmalia, Kettleman City, Rosamont and Martinez joined together to halt this unproven technology.

They hustle people in front of the market and then go right in and buy it.

Your eyes ache and you have, like a cold, only it's not a cold," she says. Gutierrez, 59 and the mother of nine, has just won a battle to protect the air in her neighborhood--already polluted by traffic from five freeways, body shops, food-processing plants and factories.

As West Coast correspondent for the Cairo daily Al-Ahram, Soraya Abdoul Seoud seldom ventured across the river to Los Angeles' Eastside. "I was afraid to come to this area," Abdoul said Wednesday as she rode in a bus down bustling Cesar E. Chavez Avenue, one of the neighborhood's main drags. "All you hear about in the media is the negative side."
