Panel & Discussion: Puerto Ricans Fought A Pipeline AND WON!!!

  • The Murphy Institute for Worker Education and Labor Studies, CUNY (map)

On behalf of the members and supporters of NY Contra el Gasoducto and in continued solidarity with the people of Puerto Rico we are thrilled to invite you to the NY presentation of the book documenting the heroic, historic and victorious fight against the Via Verde gas pipeline written by Arturo Massol Deyá of Casa Pueblo de Adjuntas.

The book provides an exhaustive and exhilarating account of the strategies, tactics and collaborations involved in defeating the proposed 92-mile gas pipeline that would have wreaked havoc on communities, the environment and critical resources.

It also serves as an invaluable guide for communities around the world fighting similar projects, corrupt governments and the fossil fuel industry while reinforcing the movement led by communities that are proving every day that another world is possible by committing themselves to safe and renewable forms of energy.

Come listen to Dr. Arturo Massol share colorful and insightful strategies that were employed during this struggle. There will also be other activists and representatives from other organizations highlighting the work they continue to do around pipelines and climate change.

Stop the Williams Pipeline 5 Borough Organizing Meeting

We've come a long way since summer 2017 when we started organizing against the Williams NESE pipeline. 
In 2018, we organized together with NJ allies and created 6,000 comments filed against this pipeline, recruited numerous communities to stand up with us, and even convine the NY DEC to deny them a permit.
However, they are BACK, and it's our duty to organize stronger until we stop them.

Picket Cuomo - Off Fossil Fuels

On June 18, Governor Cuomo is holding a fundraiser in Manhattan -- and we'll be there, urging him to move New York off fossil fuels.

We'll be outside the Plaza Hotel, demanding that Cuomo ban oil & gas projects and shift to 100 percent renewable energy.

We'll be picketing from 5:30 - 7:00 pm, calling on Cuomo to walk the talk and be a true climate leader by stopping all fossil fuel pipelines, power plants, and other infrastructure and transitioning to renewable energy now!

Build Music into Our Climate Movement: Build Power, Connection.

After the Albany Cuomo Walk The Talk On Climate event, we experienced how music can absolutely change the essence of an action. People who transformed the War Room into the SOLAR ROOM were led in song by Lu from The Peace Poets, and everyone we spoke to after than action expressed deep emotions specifically because of the music. We built power, community, and strengthened our movement.

A week later, Kim from Sane Energy attended a "Human Instrument" event with musician and teacher Nick Demeris, who studied under Bobby McFerrin. It was transformative, otherworldly and built deep bonds with total strangers. We are bringing Nick to NYC to build that with all of us. Please join us on June 17th from 5pm-7pm in El Jardín del Paraíso: the garden on E. 4th between Ave C & D -- We have a rain location nearby.

From Nick Demeris who will lead this workshop: "Since time long ago, before there were instruments, Human beings came together around fires, in forests, on mountain tops and at ocean sides to join there voices together to mark the changing of the seasons, to celebrate birth, commemorate death, exalt the night's sky, or bless a meal."

"Human Instruments is an experience that celebrates ourselves as beings of sounds, unlocking the power of the voice using techniques from jazz, blues, world music, freestyle rap and circle singing, practicing deep listening to ourselves and each other."

Public Hearing: Williams Pipeline in Brooklyn

The Williams Transco energy company is proposing to build a 23-mile long pipeline that will carry fracked natural gas under New York harbor. The pipeline would run along the coast of Staten Island then connect off the Rockaways. 

It's appalling that FERC, The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, otherwise known as the rubber stamp machine for fracked gas infrastructure, has only scheduled ONE hearing in New York City, one of many front line communities to this pipeline.

We will be organizing a press event and rally at a TBD time, so stay tuned for that and join us in the fight to stop this pipeline.

Cuomo: Walk The Talk Off Fossil Fuels Statewide Convergence!

Cuomo: Walk The Talk Off Fossil Fuels Statewide Convergence!

Sign The Pledge To Resist NY InFRACKstructure on April 23rd:
www.stopnyinfrackstructure.org

We will have a short prayerful event sprinkled with creative storytelling and march together in Albany, NY together before entering the New York State Capitol Building to demand Governor Cuomo Walks the Talk and moves Off Fossil Fuels NOW.

One year ago, Governor Cuomo announced in his 2017 State of the State that “the State must double down by investing in the fight against dirty fossil fuels and fracked gas from neighboring states.” And in 2014, he outright banned High-Volume Hydraulic Fracturing, or fracking, on account of health and environmental impacts. 

In 2017, however, we have seen continued expansion in gas pipelines, compressor stations, and power plants. Compressed-gas truck fleets now ply rural roads and explosive oil trains run along residential communities. The state continues to import frack waste from Pennsylvania. Medical associations have documented increased cancer rates, and respiratory problems. Besides pregnant women, children and the elderly are most at risk. Working-class neighborhoods, communities of color, and Indigenous Peoples are disproportionately targeted by fracked gas infrastructure. This contradicts the goals of Environmental Justice, human rights, and stewardship of the earth.

It’s time for the Governor to protect our future. The first step must be to halt all fracked-gas projects statewide. To stem climate change we must work toward a just transition to 100% renewable energy immediately. We must address issues of energy efficiency and storage. And we must do this with courage and expediency.

Public Hearing Preparation for Williams NESE Pipeline

Join us on Monday, April 9th at 7pm to prepare comments to oppose the Williams NESE Pipeline.

The Williams Company has proposed a 23 mile fracked gas pipeline for our shores. The Federal Agency overseeing the approval of this pipeline is holding a public hearing to respond to Williams' Draft Environmental Impact Statement (or DEIS). 

It is our responsibility to show up at this hearing to oppose it. However, we want to be on point with our allotted 3 minutes to speak. The DEIS is over 800 pages. Join us as we present key areas of the DEIS to focus on and formulate our comments pertaining to the DEIS. It is imperative we build the public record of opposition, even though this crooked federal agency called FERC (Federal Energy Regulatory Commission), approves 99.9% of the pipelines that come across their desk since that is how their funding is generated. (It's a crooked system, we know. We've been working to change that for years, and are not going to give up.)

There are a number of reasons to oppose this pipeline. It is bad for our health, it is bad for local jobs, and we don't even need it! Our Risk For Their Profit.
