Pipeline

Fracked Gas and the Colonization of New York

May 1, 2016 // 0 Comments

By Lisa Harrison Something is happening in New York State. It will impact millions of people, but I, like so many others, was unaware until I heard about Minisink from my friend Asha. What Happened in Minisink? In 2011, Asha and her husband Yorke moved into their dream house in the bucolic township of Minisink, NY (about an hour northwest of New York City). The township is in the fertile “Black Dirt Region”, which provides fresh food to markets and restaurants throughout New York City’s five boroughs.

March 12, 2016 // 1 Comment

  Guilty and Proud, is the slogan of the Indian Point 11 as they appear in court to plead guilty for blocking the main entrance to the Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant owned by Entergy. One hour prior to their court appearance, they held a press conference just outside the court house to explain the reasons for their actions and were available afterwards for more comments. Their message: Over the years, even decades, we have tried many lawful ways to bring to the public and government’s attention the needed actions to correct the violations and repeated accidents at this nuclear [...]

August 25, 2015 // 0 Comments

  Over the past four years, the Unist’ot’en clan of the Wet’suwet’en nation have literally built a strategy to keep three proposed oil and gas pipelines from crossing their land. Concerned about the environmental damage a leak could cause on land they’ve never given up, they’ve constructed a protection camp to block pipeline companies.
