Protect the People rally

What: A rally to broadcast the need for our government representatives to publicly call for a stop to the Bomb Trains and initiate a plan to switch to 100% renewable sources of energy by 2030 as outlined in the Jacobson plan. (1)

Why: Given the high volume of Bakken oil shipments coming into our city, Albany continues to be at risk for an explosive derailment that would probably kill many and certainly devastate the city for decades.

Where: Outside Albany City Hall at 24 Eagle St., Albany, NY.

When: Wednesday, April 1st, from noon - 12:30 PM

Who: A coalition of PAUSE members and anti-war demonstrators

Photo Op: A colorful crowd with earth flags, mock bomb train, PAUSE banner, and peace regalia. PLUS, songs led by guitarists Terri Roben and Terry Phelan.


(1) Examining the feasibility of converting New York State’s all-purpose energy infrastructure to one using wind, water, and sunlight by Jacobson, Howarth et. al.
