Many groups continue to work on stopping the AIM Pipeline from resting 100 feet from the aging Indian Point nuclear power plant that could become a Fukushima disaster for NYC and environs. The People’s Puppets made this short video. Upstate groups like We Are Seneca Lake continue civil disobedience and arrests to stop Crestwood from storing natural gas in empty salt caverns next to Seneca Lake.
