1711 James Cromwell- Jail Time: What’s Happening in Waywayanda and the protest of the CPV gas-fired power plant. Keep up the fight against fracking!

What’s happening in WayWayanda, NY is happening in many parts of the United States. Protests against fracking, gas-fired plants and pipelines, which are adding toxins to sacred and beautiful natural lands, with little input from the surrounding communities, is causing an uproar. There is a blatant disregard by the oil and gas industries as to the harm they bring to species and humans, who are displaced and poisoned. James Cromwell protested the CPV plant with other community members, and wound up in jail. He said “once you commit yourself to commit an act of civil disobedience, you know there will be consequences.” Tune in to find out what brought about this action.
