Monday, June 13, 2016: Six brave ResistAIM members put their lives on the line for public safety and were arrested for protesting the grave danger presented by Spectra’s AIM pipeline expansion.
Lend support to these resisters by donating to our “Resistance and Resilience” legal fundraising at GoFundMe.
You took the ResistAIM pledge of your support – and look what happened!
With your community support, and resilient resistance, this is what our group ResistAIM accomplished in one week:
(Chick this VIDEO worth millions of words)
– SATURDAY, May 21: Hundreds marched and demonstrated resilience with non-violent direct action on the AIM pipeline in Peekskill, with 21 arrests in the community that stopped Spectra work.
– MONDAY, May 23: With our building pressure, U.S. Senators Charles Schumer and Kristen Gillibrand publicly called for Spectra to stop work. They join New York Governor Cuomo and the N.Y.S. D.E.C. in asking Spectra to stop work while an independent health and safety risk assesment is completed.
– WEDNESDAY, MAY 25: In a symbol of resilience and resistance, two ResistAIM-ers people courageously locked themselves into a renewable-energy powered, 20-ft recycled shipping-container home at the work site, directly on the AIM pipeline route.
We need your support now. Donate HERE.

We are so grateful and will keep you updated with news.
Our famous WE SAY NO To Spectra’s Algonquin Incremental Market Pipeline banner has been seen by many passers-by, local, regional, national and international media to help tell the story of a community who says NO to a Texas based company coming to our community to take land and install a poisonous and risky pipeline for their private profit.
What do WE SAY YES to? We say YES to Renewable, Safe, Local Jobs and Healthy Families.
Will you say YES to joining families on May 21st at 9am in Peekskill to stop the Spectra Pipeline? If so, please click HERE or on the image above to sign up for a morning of safe, non-violent, fun direct action. We are calling for people to physically stop construction activities by putting their bodies on the line along the proposed pipeline route. It’s time to show up for impacted communities, for New York, and for our climate!

Dana is contributing part of the evening’s proceeds to ResistAIM. Trees have been felled and people’s land taken to build yet more fracked gas infrastructure in the Northeast.
