Cambridge City Council held a budget hearing on May 14, 2007, regarding the Community Development Department. The major focus was on biotech development at the expense of all else. The City Council showing its ignorance has no awareness nor concern for the enormous potential of irreparable harms due to the tampering of the biotech research industrial complex with the distinctions between humans, animals and plants.
The City Council and the Massachusetts government have no concern for the abuses to humans used for research subjects without informed consent. In the name of good horrendous harms have been committed historically. City government enables more serious abuses ignoring the past.
