MARCHA NACIONAL – Desde Nueva York firmes contra el Gasoducto
NY Contra El Gasoducto
Invites New York to march in support of the people of Puerto Rico
Come out to support the the local NYC march/rally in solidarity with the National March Against the Gasoducto/Gas Pipeline to be held in Puerto Rico on February 19, 2012.
The Puerto Rican people, long unified in their opposition to the pipeline, will reaffirm their demand that Governor Fortuño cancel the proposed GAS PIPELINE ‘GREENWAY’, without delay or tricks.
Governor Fortuño’s Via Verde Gas Pipeline represents the destruction of 1,500 acres of forests, 800 acres of agricultural land, direct impact to 235 bodies of water, wetlands, ecosystems that produce the majority of Puerto Rico’s drinking water, threats to sacred archeological sites of native Taino people, displacement of scores of Puerto Rican families, waste of millions of dollars, as well as putting at risk over 200,000 people.
The US Army Corp of Engineers, having ignored scientific evidence, and the people’s call for public hearings, translation, access to documents, will be making the final decision of a permit soon.
In Puerto Rico, environmental, professional, labor, student, religious, cultural, political and community groups and grassroots Puerto Rican people are marching. Join us to stand with them, to stand for environmental justice, to stand for the right of the people of Puerto Rico to their land, their water, their culture. Let’s tell US Army Corp of Engineers, No!
