Earlier today, I mailed my Designating Petition off to the NYS Board of Elections in Albany. Now I can turn all of my attention to the June 24th primary election, which means taking action to protect the environment.
The Green Party voters that I have spoken with during the course of the past two months want action on environmental protection. I have a long and strong history on environmental protection. Environmental protection is my whole life. It is my intention to proceed with environmental protection actions that will inspire fellow Americans to join together in a mass movement in opposition to hydro fracking and tar sands extraction.
I always told myself that if I had been alive when the buffalo were being slaughtered in the late 1800s, I would have done what I could to stop it. The hydro fracking is an atrocity of similar proportions. Tar sands exploitation is an atrocity of this scale. “We will show the oil and gas corporations what it means to love the Earth and remember the buffalo.”-Donald L. Hassig
