15 Arrested at Sen. Schumer’s Office Protesting Spectra Energy AIM Pipeline

HeadlineOct 27, 2016

In New York City, resistance is growing in opposition to Spectra Energy’s AIM pipeline, which is slated to carry fracked gas only hundreds of feet from the aging Indian Point nuclear power plant and then under the Hudson River. On Tuesday morning, 15 people were arrested blocking the doors to New York Senator Chuck Schumer’s office in Manhattan to demand Schumer stop the pipeline’s construction. This comes two weeks after four activists blockaded pipeline construction for more than 15 hours by crawling inside the pipeline and locking themselves to each other.
