Watch the Documentary

Talking Truth presents scientifically documented harms that will be imposed upon New Yorkers of all ages and demographics, especially the most vulnerable; children and low- income; and on New Yorkers across the river in the Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn and Staten Island. Truths that Mayor de Blasio does not refute, yet continues to ignore.

The film substantiates the facts behind why the garbage station does not achieve its goal, is not needed, and why the DEC should not renew the permits for its construction. Approaching the anniversary of Superstorm Sandy, Talking Truth vividly documents that the garbage station will create an environmental disaster when another Sandy-size storm inevitably occurs.

As the City moves forward with building this dangerous garbage facility, P2P continues to educate the public about the short and long-term health, safety, environmental and fiscal dangers that will adversely impact all New Yorkers because of this unjust policy by the City.

Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, Assemblyman Dan Quart, Assemblyman Robert Rodriguez, Council Member Ben Kallos, Council Member Dan Garodnick and community members appear in the film.
