Michael Moore – Get Up, Stand Up (lecture)

But you couldn't fool all the people all the time
And now you see the light, stand up for your rights

Finding justice in the Portland Harbor cleanup

Portland Harbor is the heavily industrialized portion of the Willamette River running north of downtown to Kelly's Point. Since it was listed as a Superfund site in 2000, cleaning up the toxins - ranging from heavy metals to pesticides - has been a source of contention between the city, state, industry and citizen groups. Now a "Portland Harbor Partnership" composed of government and industry representatives is moving towards a final plan for cleanup and future use of the area.
