Earth Day: Fracking go away!


In celebration of Earth Day, District Leader Jonathan Geballe — with Celia Wu in photo above — on Saturday led a contingent of Village Independent Democrat club members in a demonstration against the Spectra gas pipeline and hydrofracking. The demonstration, from noon Ato 2 p.m., was held in front of the Bleecker St. Playground to symbolize that the planet must be saved for today’s children and future generations. Many V.I.D.’ers, community activists, state Senator Brad Hoylman and a number of candidates for local office joined the rally. Signatures were collected for a letter to Governor Cuomo to urge him to ban fracking in New York State.
