WWNO: NOLA City Council Opposes Formosa Plant in Mostly Symbolic Vote

After several delays, New Orleans City Council has voted unanimously in favor of a resolution to oppose the construction of a Formosa plastics plant in St. James Parish.

In a regular City Council meeting on Thursday, Councilmembers Kristin Gisleson-Palmer and Cyndi Nguyen, who sponsored the resolution, referenced several Formosa spills in their arguments, including a 2016 toxic chemical spill in Vietnam that Nguyen said impacted her family members.
