Sunday at Suncor Refinery Commerce City, Colorado - Occupy the Hot Zone. Occupy gathered to protest the continuing oil leak at the Suncor Refinery that threatens the local water supply. This is the second demonstration at the refinery, the first March 10, 2012 here.

Meeting at small parking lot next to The Sand Creek Greenway bicycle path (64th and York Street), the group made signs, ate a donated meal (Food Not Bombs), then proceeded to the overlook area near the clean up activities where Sand Creek flowed into the Platt River.

Part of the activity was to inspect the area for signs of clean-up by Suncor so Occupy went over the fence down to the water and around to the worst part of the leak. As compared to the previous inspection in March - the aeration and pumps to remove the benzene were gone and any other clean up activity was not obvious.

The story in the Sunday Denver Post about Suncor indicated that on the one hand the cleanup could take years and on the other hand they thought they had fixed the leak although the residue could continue for some time. It was hard to have any confidence in either Suncor or the local authorities as real answers were non existent and dates extended toward the next century.

After returning from the inspection the activity moved to the nearby highway where the demonstrators waved signs to engage motorists awareness of the problem.

Enjoy the photos!
