VIDEO: ‘The Briefing Episode #11: PROOF’ against Port of Seattle released

‘The Briefing Episode #11: PROOF’ – area resident/activist Steve Edmiston’s ongoing attempt to “take on the Port of Seattle, one public comment at a time” – has been released:

And because he referenced it in his comments, here’s the relevant “closing the beach” clip from Jaws:

Edmiston is responding to an FAA and Port staff briefing in Spring, 2017 that he contends was both incomplete and inadequate because it failed to convey, among other things, data on the harms being caused to humans and the environment by airplanes.

The goals of this documentary film project include using Edmiston’s collected public comments as the spine of a feature documentary film.

As a private citizen, under Port bylaws, Edmiston must provide his 43-minute briefing – the same time provided to the FAA and Port staff – in two-minute public comment segments. Edmiston estimates the project will take 9 to 12 months to complete.

    I feel like the long term residents of the airport region have been beat-down and deflated from the 3rd runway fight and new residents just don’t understand the history of lies and deceit that the Port weaponized during the 3rd runway fight (such as the 3rd runway will just be used during in-climate weather…) So, I for one, would like to thank Steve for the fight he is waging on behalf of what is right for the human beings of this region that have to live and die by someone else’s financial decisions. I hope more people get on board and that he feels the supported.

    Thank you Steve Edmiston.
