ONLY all of us stand up and fight, we can win this war with big money! WE COUNT ON YOUR PARTICIPATION TO WIN THE WAR!

Protest talking points:
1. Newby Landfill got 11 public nuisance tickets, 6 odor NOVs from gas leaking, MRF, and compost in 17 months, average once a month! SJ planning committee staff report says it's odor impact is insignificant! How can they conclude that? Please check its staff report at http://www.sanjoseca.gov/DocumentCenter/View/61587 2. The Newby Landfill' liner is designed for 150ft, now they are approving 95ft more! The problem is the groundwater underneath of Newby Landfill has been contaminated by a carcinogenic substance. If allowing the expansion and continuing the leachate's generation will contaminate our groundwater further! Approval of the Newby Landfill expansion is knowingly to endanger public health! Knowingly wrongdoing is a criminal action! Stop slowly poisoning half of Santa Clara county residents! 3. We want to question the integrity of the city of San Jose! 44 landfills around SF bay have been closed at max capacity without 1 public nuisance ticket, why can the Newby Landfill with 11 public nuisance tickets in 17 months get a green light on the massive expansion permit? How can the environmental impact to be insignificant in San Jose staff report for a landfill being issued 11 public nuisance tickets in 17 months? We want to call for FBI's investigation! There is something wrong! 4. The old EIR was concerned about the rights of rats, seagulls, fish, and vegetation, but omitted or ignored the impact on human beings right of fresh air and public health in results of Newby Landfill expansion! In San Jose Officials mind, we are lower than rats and seagulls! If not they should order a new EIR because the Newby Landfill is a public nuisance and groundwater has been contaminated by the garbage dumped in the landfill. 5. If Newby Landfill gets expansion permit, our quality of life and house value will continue in distress
