New York, October 18--The third excerpt from the benefit for Gasland and International WOW at IFC Center features Craig Stevens from the fracked zone in Dimack, Susquehannah Co.
New York, October 18, 2012---A second excerpt from the Q & A after the benefit screening of Gasland at the IFC Center on Sixth Avenue and West 3rd, where Josh Fox's Oscar-nominated film was released theatrically in 2010. Yuka Honda and Sean Lennon of Artists Against Fracking speak out against hydraulic fracturing.
|Gasland Benefit: Sean Lennon, Yuka Honda, Josh FoxNew York, October 18, 2012 -- As the hydrofracking issue becomes increasingly contentious, with deadlines approaching on every front, opponents are mounting efforts to alert residents both Upstate and in New York City to the hotly debated drilling technique's dangers. Residents of the Southern Tier, which sits on top of the Marcellus Shale, are concerned about known carcinogens in the water used in the drilling process, waste water and air pollution from methane gas, as well as the loss of their homes' real estate value once the land has been contaminated. Clean-water advocates in New York City share their concern about pollution of the aquifer which, they fear, could affect the city's watershed due to seepage of chemicals used in fracking. Also, local environmentalists and residents are worried about potentially dangerous levels of radon in Marcellus Shale natural gas. And there is also fear over the risk of pipeline explosions in a dense urban area, such as the West Village, where the Gansevoort Peninsula is the endpoint for a 16-mile, 30-inch, high-pressure pipeline that Spectra is constructing from New Jersey under the Hudson River. On Oct. 18 there was a special screening of the Academy Award-nominated film "Gasland" at the IFC Center on Sixth Ave. at W. Third St.|
New York, December 1, 2012--Today's 1 pm protest rally at Spectra Energy's construction site in the West Village had as its focus the expedited construction work taking place this week-end. Prior to shutting up shop for the winter, Spectra is rushing through the installation of their high pressure natural gas pipeline under the Hudson from New Jersey to emerge at the Gansevoort site, where Con Edison will pick up the work and build out the last section of the pipe to link to their distribution system. About 150 to 200 people attended the rally, organized by Occupy the Pipeline. Monica Hunken of OTP and Clare Donohune, of Sane Energy Project, commented on the significant gas news of the week: namely, the passage of HR 2606 by President Obama which will allow drilling to take place in national parks and wildlife sanctuaries, areas reserved for recreation; and in an instance of particularly egregious timing, a pipeline to be constructed through the Rockaways, an area devastated by hurricane Sandy and still in the process of recovery.
This is the second video subMedia.tv has produced about the struggle to stop the a natural gas transport project called the Pacific Trails Pipeline or PTP. The Unis'tot'en, a clan of the Wet'suet'en Nation have built a protection camp to bock PTP, in so called British Columbia in Canada. This is the third time the Unis'tot'en have called for a convergence in their territories. This year's camp attracted over 150 people who came from as far east as Montreal and as far south as Florida. The camp organizers opted not to tap large environmental ngo's for material support, and instead reached out to grassroots, community based allies. Out of the proposed pipeline projects that would cross through Unis'tot'en land, Pacific Trails is the first one slated to begin construction and poses and immediate threat.
