ACTION: Protest Spectra Pipeline - NYC
Texas Gas Men vs. the People of NYC Showdown.
Spectra, You've been warned. Get out of Town, We don't like your kind around here.
This Monday night Spectra Energy is due to start heavy construction on the Hudson River site. We are going to throw them a little unwelcoming party for their arrival. It's Showdown time! Put on your toughest Clint Eastwood face, bring your signs, noisemakers, snacks, puppets, instruments, songs, chants and prepare to tell the dirty extraction industry, "Go ahead. Make my day."
Wear a costume! Bring a sign, an instrument, anything to help spread the word to the people most affected by this, the residents of the NYC and NJ.
The “New Jersey-New York Expansion Project” is a proposed high-pressure gas pipeline, varying in diameter from 42-30″ and slated to travel up the New Jersey shoreline, through the edge of Staten Island, under Jersey City and across the Hudson River, entering Manhattan at the Gansevoort Peninsula in the West Village. It is known more commonly by the name of its builder’s parent company, Spectra Energy.
We must take a stand to defend our communities; upstate, NYC, New Jersey, all places where hydro-fracking rears its ugly head. The gas industry thinks they can sneak in and set up shop in NY and we'll just lie there and take it while they destroy our farmland, water and air quality, expose our homes to radon and put us in a blast zone. They're dead wrong.
Monday night we follow in the footsteps of our brave climate justice comrades and we fight back. Please join us.
Fun Fact: Spectra Energy is excluded from regulations of the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts.
Fun Fact: Radon Gas, according to the Surgeon General, is the 2nd leading cause of Lung Cancer in the nation today.
Radon Gas is what they want to pipe into your home via your cooking and heating gas. Thanks, but no thanks!!
Location is at the end of Gansevoort St and Hudson River Greenway.
