Hancock 17 Drone War Crimes Resisters to Continue
The first day of the trial of the Hancock 17 Drone War Crime Resisters began Friday, January 3 to a packed courtroom of over 75 supporters.and ended just after midnight early Saturday morning, January 4. The trial continues Monday, January 6 at 5 pm at the Town of Dewitt Court, 5400 Butternut Drive, East Syracuse, NY.

The first day included powerful opening statements for the group by Ed Kinane and Clare Grady, which began with a moment of silence for people killed by drone attacks. Ed powerfully stated that the defense was the convergence of two paths - the paths of legalism and of justice and conscience - and that the activists came not to break laws, but to uphold International Law.

Get the Scoop on Yogurt Businesses and Water Safety Regulations

December 4, 2013 by Anonymous


The Susquehanna Chapter of the Sierra Club meets at 7:30 p.m. on Tues., December 17 at
Central United Methodist Church, 17 Nanticoke Ave., Endicott
The topic is: "Relaxing of NYS Regulations on Dairy Farms – Threats to Our Water So We Can Have More Greek Yogurt," with speaker Erin Riddle.

Recent media attention highlighted Gov. Cuomo’s attempt to change the regulations for CAFOs (Confined Animal Feeding Operations), raising the threshold requirement for a permit from 199 animal units to 299. As a result, the Sierra Club Atlantic Chapter filed a lawsuit challenging NYS’s decision as a violation of the Clean Water Act.

But what are CAFOs, how adequately are they regulated, and what impact do they have on public health, local democracy, local food systems, rural economies, and animals? Riddle will offer some observations in response to these questions and some potential solutions.

Riddle was born on a small dairy farm in Salamanca, Cattaraugus County, NY, and has since lived in several cities across the state. She chairs the Sierra Club Atlantic Chapter (SCAC) Farm & Food Committee, serves on the SCAC Executive Committee and the Susquehanna Group Executive Committee. In addition, she is coordinator of the SCAC campaign to pass a mandatory GMO labeling law in NYS. Currently she is finishing up a Ph.D. program at Binghamton University and teaches at Elmira College.

The public is welcome to attend. For more information, contact Scott Lauffer at:
