Deadline Extended: Action Alert! Stop Liberty LNG Port off the coast at Jones Beach!

The deadline has been extended. There is still time to add your voice. Action Alert! Stop Liberty LNG Port off the coast at Jones Beach!

Liberty LNG Port has applied to construct a deepwater LNG (liquefied natural gas) port just off Jones Beach. This will accelerate the pressure to frack and will crush efforts to move to renewable energy. This project is being super-fast-tracked. We must stop it now!

Brooklyn Reps vote NO to money for weapons and war!

A victory! Brooklyn Reps vote NO to money for weapons and war On, Wednesday, July 23,2013, five out of six Brooklyn members of the House voted NO on theNational Defense Appropriations Act(NDAA, annual Pentagon budget, HR 2397). Realizing that the bloated war budget robs Brooklyn taxpayers of tax dollars for vital public programs, our representatives said “ENOUGH!!”

Especially notable is that Rep. Hakeem Jeffries changed his vote from endorsing the Pentagon budget bill to voting against it! (He had voted YES on the National Defense Authorization Act, which endorses the Pentagon budget bill. Responding to the anger and dismay in his district (expressed through petitions, call, and a visit to his office), he voted NO on the Appropriations Act (which actually appropriates the money.)

Jeffries did the right thing thanks to your signatures, emails and calls to his office! Please call your representative, especially if you live in Jeffries’ district, to thank them for standing up to pressure, and for voting NO to money for weapons and war!! This is a small step but it’s in the right direction!
