Elections and the Left Panel at Syracuse University, Communication and Rhetorical Studies

In politics, Uncategorized, Video Documentation on March 5, 2016 at 11:34 am

“Progressive and leftist voters face a choice every election season: Fight for a change from within the Democratic Party? Fight for a third party to the left of the Democrats? Abstain from elections altogether? This year’s presidential race has provided an uncommon opportunity for left politics to reach a national audience. Which candidates, parties, or strategies will help the left put an end to the decades-long triumph of the right wing?”

* Melanie Goldberg
Staff attorney, Legal Services of CNY, for Hillary Clinton

A presentation on Bakken crude oil trains with Sandy Steubing, an activist and organizer with PAUSE, People of Albany United for Safe Energy.

“Every week trains loaded with volatile crude oil “fracked” in North Dakota’s Bakken shale travel through Syracuse. With very little public awareness and no study of environmental impacts, the gas & oil industry has made our region a dangerous hub for highly flammable oil using these “bomb trains.” The rail system was never built for this kind of dangerous cargo, yet these trains travel through population centers and next to schools, homes, and businesses.”

Many are under the impression that New York is safe from fracking now because high-volume horizontal drilling will be banned. But the reality is that industry is on the attack with multiple proposals for pipelines, compressor stations, storage caverns, waste dumping and service facilities. Find out what’s happening near the Syracuse area via an online mapping tool that demonstrates that New York is in fact being fracked in every way except the drilling.  Learn how you can help stop the infrastructure projects that are threatening communities across NY.
