29 Arrested Protesting Fracked Gas Power Plant in Dover, New York

HeadlineNov 20, 2019

In New York, 29 people were arrested Saturday protesting the construction of a fracked gas power plant in Dover. Both Connecticut and New York residents oppose the power plant’s construction, saying it will pollute the air with harmful chemicals and greenhouse gases, a major driver of climate change. And the British Labour Party says it would remove companies failing to take action to climate change from the London Stock Exchange, if Labour wins the general election on December 12. The announcement came after Britain’s Green Party criticized Labour for dropping plans to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2030.
