On October 26th, 15 mothers, fathers, aunts, uncles, brothers and sisters were arrested in New York City on 49th street and 3rd avenue in a non-violent act of civil disobedience – blocking a doorway to a building where the office of New York Senator Chuck Schumer is located. Hundreds of others rallied on the street within yards of these brave souls cheering them on and thanking them, joining together in song and chants, calling out for help from any and all corners including New York Senator Gillibrand and Schumer, President Obama, and Governor Cuomo. We have been fighting for more then two years to stop this particular gas pipeline –the Spectra AIM pipeline – that is now under the Hudson river, within 105 feet of critical infrastructure of the Indian Point Nuclear power plant.
