Pipeline protest in Greenport Thursday

Dec 01, 2016 12:05 am
Local activists are organizing a protest in Greenport with the Standing Rock Solidarity Network on Dec. 1. Several Columbia County residents returned from the protests against a pipeline on Native American lands in North Dakota this week, and others are joining a Global Day of Action with the Greenport protest at TD Bank on Fairview Avenue. Protesters have been calling for TD Bank to divest from the Dakota Access Pipeline. Locally, several similar pipelines are proposed to criss-cross the area, including the Pilgrim Pipeline that would run along the I-87 corridor through Albany, Greene, and Ulster counties to New Jersey.
