The Philadelphia Tribune covered the Environmental Justice Protest March held in Chester this past Saturday. They captured quotes from several of the speakers and a few participants. They also recorded a few quotes from the mayor himself.
The mayor seems to support protest movements and would like to see them expand to Marcus Hook and Trainer also. He expressed how he wouldn’t be the one to lead a protest in those towns and takes umbrage that anyone from outside Chester would come into the city to stage a protest here without meeting with him first. According to him, it’s interesting to see whites who once lived in Chester come back to try to help the current citizens. In his words, they should ‘Mind their Business.’
