Peekskill, New York: Residents Launch Permanent Blockade to Stop AIM Pipeline

HeadlineMay 25, 2016

In Peekskill, New York, residents have launched a permanent blockade in a bid to stop construction of a pipeline that would carry high-pressure methane gas from Massachusetts through Rhode Island, Connecticut and down to the communities along the Hudson River. Spectra Energy’s Algonquin Incremental Market Project—known as the AIM pipeline—would run only hundreds of feet from the aging Indian Point nuclear power plant, sparking concerns that a pipeline break could cause a catastrophic nuclear disaster that would threaten New York City. Democracy Now! was there as the blockade was launched just hours ago. We’ll bring you a report later in the broadcast.
