Let's stop CPV.
Come to the Picket Party at the CPV fracked-gas mega-plant on Rte 6 this Saturday, Nov. 18 from 11-12 - Bring food, drink, drums, guitars, etc. Please let your friends and family know. Let's make some joyful noise as we shut this down!
Join us for a special press conference and rally today as we release new information that can stop the lateral pipeline necessary for the power plant to operate. The press conference will be towards the end of our weekly picket at 11:45 am
This week we will be joined by activists from around NYS to launch the OFF campaign. Urging Governor Cuomo to move NY Off Fossil Fuels.
If you can't attend the Picket Please Call Cuomo Contact info is at the bottom of this post.
CPV could be the fourth largest fracked gas power plant in the United States. CPV is a physical sculpture that illustrates what is wrong with our County Right Now. It's being built by the Mid Hudson Regional Economic Development Council & Corporations, Not by or for People!
It is imperative you let your numbers be counted for what is right and against what is wrong. Stand with us. This plant is illegal. Just like the legoland project, it required violating the Comprehensive Master Plan of the Town and Zoning Laws. The Economic Development Council and Orange County Partnership are trying to shove this commercial development project down your throat. Your presence on Saturdays signifies a unified message that "We are done giving tax breaks and zoning favors to Corporate Welfare Demands. "
We have real Cities Struggling for Economic Recovery and they could have really used all the resources, jobs, training and materials that went into this illegal plant! Instead of helping Cities like Newburgh or Monticello, we just keep helping big successful Corporations with Profit Margins beyond that which is conceivable to the average citizen.
Orange County does not NEED CPV.
We know the most valuable donation you can make is your time and we welcome your numbers among our attendance.
Never protested before? No sweat, just stand with us. Stand among other Concerned Citizens for the Hudson Valley.
