Power Shift New York kicked-off last night, and it was incredible! Co-hosted by Occupy Albany, we had incredible speakers and activists set the stage for the weekend, including Josh Fox of Gasland, Bill McKibben of 350.org, Wenonah Hauter of Food & Water Watch, and Josh Kahn Russell of the Tar Sands Action and more!
We have our work cut out for us, but we also have incredible energy here. As Josh Fox said there's "100,000 gas wells proposed for New York," and Bill McKibben said "this Power Shift is one of the most important because we have to save the Adirondacks and so much more." Check out the Storify story below to see all the highlights through tweets, photos and more. Sneak peak: Bill McKibben playing beach volleyball, and this great article in the Albany Time Union!
If you're reading from afar, sign our petition to Governor Cuomo to say NO fracking, YES green economy, we're delivering it through our action on Monday!
