Snaps from NYC Call to Action: We Stand With Standing Rock

On November 15th 2016, a large peoples’ assembly was held in front of U.S. Army Corps of Engineers building in lower Manhattan, NYC. People congregated in front of Foley Square Fountain located in 111 Worth St. to demand the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to halt the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline and A.I.M. Access Pipeline in N.Y.

The A.I.M. is a pipeline project close to its completion stage run by oil company Spectra and its subsidiary Algonquin. This network of pipelines would deliver fracked gas to northeastern states like New York. There has been major controversy with this project because its pipelines cross the Hudson River and are being installed close to the Indian Point Nuclear Facility in New York.
