Issue #19, Vol. VII No. 1, Spring 2013
12 local community organizations are sponsoring this meeting. The presenter, Bob Nied is a board member of the Schoharie-based Center for Sustainable Rural Communities (CSRC).
For the past ten months, CSRC has been working with Stop the Pipeline to organize and educate residents and landowners along the proposed Constitution Pipeline about the range of options open to them if they wish to resist its construction.
CSRC is politically independent and does not endorse candidates, preferring to utilize public education, community outreach and citizen activism as tools for change. It has been a real privilege to work with Bob, who balances his temperate and rational argument with an (understated) passion for truth and justice.
The Franklin Garden Club invites you to attend garden talks on Saturday evenings followed by light refreshments.

Sean Lennon wrote a op-ed for the New York Times on Monday, August 27, 2012.
“A few months ago I was asked by a neighbor near our farm to attend a town meeting at the local high school. Some gas companies at the meeting were trying very hard to sell us on a plan to tear through our wilderness and make room for a new pipeline: infrastructure for hydraulic fracturing. Most of the residents at the meeting, many of them organic farmers, were openly defiant. The gas companies didn’t seem to care. They gave us the feeling that whether we liked it or not, they were going to fracture our little town.”
He and his mother, Yoko Ono, have launched Artists Against Fracking.
