Party to Save the Village
...from pipelines, random fracking, and total insanity!
Wednesday, October 3, 2012 - 6:30pm - 9:30pm
www.SaneEnergyProject.org Join us for great food, booze, live music, burlesque, and plenty of sexy magic, plus an art show and auction. Have a great time while supporting those fighting to keep the dangerous Spectra pipeline, and the fracked gas it carries, out of New York City. Featuring: Emcee Marti Cummings, Reverend Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping, Strike Anywhere, Rude Mechanical Orchestra, magician Eric Walton--plus iconic images from the forthcoming "Out of the Closet and onto the Streets: Gay Pride and the 21st Century," by photographer Suzanne Poli--and even more musicians, performers and artists! This is a totally fun event about a deadly serious issue: Studies show that the gay community has a higher-than-average cancer risk, and many in the Village already suffer from HIV-related immune deficiency. This is also a neighborhood where the number of young children has grown exponentially in recent years. 4,632 families reside here, with 1,823 children under the age of 10. Those with such delicate immune systems shouldn’t be put at additional risk from water or air poisoned by fracking, or from exposure to carcinogenic radon in shale gas piped into our stoves and laundry equipment. In addition to these and other health risks posed by fracking, the West Village and Chelsea, historical centers of gay life and home to many in the gay and arts communities, are now threatened by the Spectra pipeline, an enormous, high-pressure gas pipeline being imposed on an unwilling neighborhood. Come help support the groups who are working diligently to keep this ill-conceived pipeline and the fracked gas it carries out of New York, while leading our city towards a clean energy future. Help Sane Energy Project and Occupy The Pipeline do battle in the courts, and on the streets!
