Environmental Activists On 130 Mile Walk Across Massachusetts

Activists who have been fighting for five years to stop construction of a gas-fueled power plant in Westfield, Massachusetts set off on a cross-state walk today. It is a seven-day 130 mile walk that is scheduled to end next Friday in New Bedford where an environmental conference is being held. WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Mary Ann Babinski of Westfield Concerned Citizens.
