"The anti-incinerator coalition blasted the mayor's decision. On the eve of the city council vote, activists brought nearly 800 children--Hasidic, Latino, and African-American--to City Hall to urge the council to reject the mayor's plan to build new incinerators. Rabbi Niederman of the UJO told the crowd that 'just because we are poor does not mean our children must breathe air made poisonous by garbage-burning incinerators.' Luis Garden Acosta of El Puente focused on the pathbreaking coalition that had been formed between the often-warring groups, noting that 'in our common air we have found common ground.'"
