WE DEMAND A RAPID AND JUST TRANSITION TO 100% RENEWABLE ENERGY NOW!
We are organizing a state-wide mobilization to take place in and around Albany, NY which will call attention to Governor Cuomo’s harmful energy policies and demand he do everything in his power to block all new fossil fuel infrastructure projects. The centerpiece of the campaign will be the disruption of the governor’s plan for a gas-fired micro-grid to power Empire Plaza that would pollute an environmental justice neighborhood, Sheridan Hollow, where the plant will be sited.
In the months leading up to the culmination of this campaign, November - April, local groups will organize synchronized actions with parallel messaging at the front-lines of their own energy battles throughout New York State as we move closer to a convergence Albany in April of 2018. The culmination of these actions will be a gathering in Albany for a mass training, skill-share, and large scale act of civil disobedience to make our demands heard loud and clear, disrupt business as usual and alert the public that Governor Cuomo needs to walk the talk and do everything in his power to stop all gas infrastructure projects and create a rapid and just transition to renewable energy.
