STOP INVASION OF OIL STORAGE BARGES ON THE HUDSON!!

  • NY SOCIETY FOR ETHICAL CULTURE 2 West 64th St. New York, NY (map)
  • Enter building on W. 64th near CPW by going up a few stairs and opening brass doors. Basement meeting room.

  • What is being done with the glut of volatile Bakken crude oil stacking up in Albany? It is being put into 40+ huge barges and parked in the scenic Hudson River. 

    We and the Hudson have had enough of the oil invasion!

    Oil trains run along one side, the Spectra-AIM pipeline was put under the river next to the aging Indian Point Nuclear Plant, and now towns from Kingston to Yonkers face an invasion of floating oil storage tanks that are vulnerable to accidents, could come unmoored, willleak over time, and pose a security risk.

    At this event you will learn more about this and what we can do.  We will have a well-informed guest speaker from Riverkeeper.

    Co-sponsors of this event are:  United For Action, Food and Water Watch and Friends of Clearwater.

    NOTE:  Though the NYC Grassroots Alliance usually holds our events/meetings on the first Mondays of every month, this one will take place on the second Monday due to the holiday weekend on July 3.
