ALBANY – More than 1,000 protesters gathered at the State Capitol to send the message to Governor Cuomo that New Yorkers don’t want fracking. The action included 130 co-sponsor organizations from medical associations to farmers to the Sierra Club Atlantic Chapter.
Protesters came on 30 buses, in car pools, rode bikes and walked. They were joined by former Congressman Maurice Hinchey, Actor Debra Winger, and musician Natalie Merchant.
Hinchey called upon the government to do what he said is the right thing.
Two conservation groups have re-submitted court papers in an attempt to obtain documents that they say prove state agencies improperly communicated with developers before approving the largest development project in the Adirondacks.
