Jamaica resident and activist Ms. Pamela Hazel and her crew are giving Metro Lumber more shit about cleaning up their act.
We also need some protests on the worst bad neighbor in the community, Royal Waste, that polluting, poisonous dump that local elected officials allowed to set up shop over a decade ago in a residential area. And might as well hit all those thug auto body shops on Merrick Blvd that have turned that stretch into the New Willets Point, while again, local elected officials, including lazy Leroy Comrie, have done nothing about for years.
KEEP GIVING THEM HELL PAMELA!!!!!!!
Protestors Call on South Jamaica Lumber Yard to Clean Up its Property
Members of ‘New York Communities for Change’ rallied outside Metropolitan Lumber and Hardware on Merrick Boulevard Wednesday afternoon.
The group says the wood is exposed to the elements and is stored on racks above the store’s fences — which can be dangerous in extreme weather.
As part of their protest, the group spruced up neighboring playgrounds to show the importance of helping the community.
“Just treat us right. Just make sure that our community is not being discriminated against. Just make sure it’s attractive like all the other neighborhoods. That’s all we are not asking for anything that is unreasonable,” said New York Communties for Change member Pamela Hazel.
We reached out to Metropolitan Lumber and Hardware but did not hear back.
