Justice in Chester

26m 46s

During the 1990s, residents in Chester, Pennsylvania, a predominantly poor African-American community, organized a movement to stop the ongoing permitting of waste treatment facilities in their city. The decades-long history of increasing pollution, grievances and the grassroots struggle to halt the city's clustering of commercial and hazardous waste facilities is chronicled in this documentary.
