McAllen, TX: 33 Acre Plume

In McAllen, Texas, there is a 33 acre plume in a south residential neighborhood. The plume rests in between the soil's surface and the water table and has been found to contain traces of benzene. Benzene is the same chemical that caused a massive explosion in Guadalajara and killed hundreds of innocent residents. Because the exact cause of the plume has not been pinpointed, the residents have not received just compensation. Sarah Chavez, a local student and peaceful activist is leading a charge to initiate action to force the responsible parties to clean up the plume.

Mission, Texas: The Helena Chemical Plant Contamination

There is a community in Mission, Texas that is suffering from an alarming rate of miscarriages, rare deformities, and high rates of cancer. Here, over 30 chemical companies produced multiple deadly chemicals at the Helena Chemical Plant. Among them were Agent Orange and 8 others which the United Nations have hailed among the "Dirty Dozen" - labeling them as "the most dangerous chemicals in the world." In 2008, The EPA removed the building that used to produce these chemicals, however, they let the surrounding homes, soil, and people behind. This footage documents only a slice of life for this community which has yet to receive just compensation for their victimization.
