  Videographer Peter Eliscu follows the judge’s verdict of the last three defendants who used non-violent civil disobedience to stop the oil/gas corporation, Spectra, from continuing a part of their pipeline next to the nuclear power plant, Indian Point, in Weschester County, NYS.  Their defense was to use the “necessity defense” as their reasoning for their actions:  we tried everything else and nothing has worked, so this action, this non-violent civil disobedience action, was our next, last and only choice left to us.  Therefore, we are all innocence.   In [...]

April 28, 2018 // 0 Comments

  Enjoying our environment can sometimes be interrupted, as is happening now on Staten Island. Imagine having to walk, run or bike across an 8 lane avenue, in order to get from one park to another! Add to that “Left Traffic Turning Lights” and a “ Right Turn Only After Stopping” traffic sign but have no timing, no signs, no traffic buttons for pedestrians, runners or bikers, and what do you get? Besides a number of people who won’t “Stop” before making any turns and swerve around pedestrians and other cars, as we’ve all experienced at times, we have a VERY UNSAFE, hardly [...]
