Rally Against Northern Access Fracked-Gas Export Pipeline

As the permit deadline looms, New Yorkers are rallying in Albany against the Northern Access Fracked-Gas Export Pipeline:

Who: Concerned residents; speakers from Delaware Riverkeeper, Sierra Club and Energy Justice Network, as well as landowners facing eminent domain

What: Citizens will march from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) to the Capitol Building in opposition to the proposed Northern Access fracked-gas pipeline; there will be speakers at both locations; the group will deliver a letter opposing the Northern Access Pipeline (NAPL) to Governor Cuomo and the DEC signed by more than 140 businesses, organizations and faith communities

Where: Noon start at DEC (625 Broadway, Albany, NY 12207); 12:30 PM march to the Capital Building; speakers at both locations

When: Monday, March 27th, 2017 – 12:00 PM–2:30 PM

Why: In less than two weeks, the DEC will either grant or deny critical permits for National Fuel’s proposed Northern Access Pipeline, which would move half a billion cubic feet of Pennsylvania fracked gas each day through Western New York, with most of the gas going to Canada. Approximately 40 landowners are facing eminent domain for this export project. If built, NAPL would cross more water bodies than the Constitution Pipeline, which the DEC denied a key water-quality certificate in April 2016. The deadline for the DEC’s decision on NAPL is April 7, 2017
