    Hi! My name is Rand Michaels and I am a freshman at SUNY-school of Environmental Science and Forestry studying environmental education and interpretation. I have played a part in organizing an event for Saturday, February 28th about the effects of fracking and the new policy in New York. This will be held at 1 pm at University United Methodist Church, 1085 E. Genesee St. it is sponsored by: Sane Energy Project, Coalition to Protect New York, Syracuse Peace Council, People for Animal Rights, Shaleshock CNY, and We Are Seneca Lake. Speakers will include Doug Couchon, from People for a Healthy Environment and Mary Menapace, from Gas Drilling Awareness for Cortland County, and we will try to accomodate you in whatever way we can. If you can’t make it to this event, I would still love to have you visit our campus when you get a free moment. Thanks so much and keep up the great work!

    Hello, My name is Nikolas Michael and I am a student at the George Washington University, originally hailing from New York City. I am a part of the organization Green GW, the only student run green organization on campus. I would like to congratulate you on your impressive run at the governorship. I would also like to inquire about the possibility of you, speaking to the students at George Washington about your career, your involvement in politics and similar subjects. While I am not able to ask you on behalf of the school itself, I would like to invite you on behalf of Green GW, and will do our best to accommodate you accordingly. Thank you very much.

    A large blockade and rally is planned for tomorrow (starting at 9am if you can join) but today, several friends (some of whom you may know) began the blockade and successfully shut down the Crestwood facility for 7 hours. Construction is authorized to begin tomorrow on what is by far, the most insane of insane projects: storing volatile, pressurized gas in unstable salt caverns next to a drinking water supply for 100,000 people, risking salinating Seneca Lake and ruining one of the few economically stable parts of the state, the Finger Lakes wine and agricultural region.

    Gratitude and respect for all those who are putting it on the line here, especially Doug Couchon, of People for a Healthy Environment, who’s been keeping pretty busy since he retired two months ago. Video of Doug suggesting that accepting radioactive frack waste into the Chemung County Landfill is an equally insane idea is at the second link.

    Tomorrow (9/23) at 47th Street and 1st Avenue outside UN Building

    Noon to 2pm

    Sponsored by the Internation Acton Center and Syrian American Forum

    Link to Facebook Event

    “As the U.S. intensifies its attacks on both Iraq and Syria, we must mobilize in outrage against these endless wars for profit! The U.S. is using ISIS as a pretext to expand their imperialist wars, domination, and exploitation in Iraq and Syria, along with the entire region.

    For the anti-war movement in the United States, it is a time to remove any doubts about who is who in the war going on in Syria. The worldwide forces of oppression — U.S., NATO and Israel — are all lined up against the Syrian government.

    The International Action Center joins the Syrian American Forum, along with many other anti-war groups to demand an end to these dangerous war escalations by the U.S.

    Obama will be addressing the UN on Weds., Sept. 24th and we will be there demanding the U.S. stop endless war and occupation in Iraq and Syria, and around the globe.

    We will be assembling outside the UN at 47th and 1st from 12pm-2pm to protest. There will be a speak-out beginning at 1.

    We urge national actions against this newest war drive by the U.S."

    I am writing to cordially invite Mr. Hawkins and Mr. Jones to be special guests of the media event, A Community Forum on Economic Justice in NYC: Thawing the American Dream featuring a screening of the Emmy-nominated documentary “American Winter”, a poignant and moving portrait illustrating the economic struggles of American families.

    Mr. Hawkins and Mr. Jones are on the razor’s edge of progressive politics and social justice organizing, and the crucial work of ending poverty in NYC and beyond could get a real boost from their, or their staffers’ presence and participation, as we connect the dots between poverty and inequality, global climate change, and so many other interconnected issues.

    I hope they may be able to join us for this screening and post-film solutions-focused panel discussion taking place in heart of the communications center of the world, Fordham University’s Lincoln Center campus, where they can engage with other activist, academic, and non-profit leaders including NASW NYC leadership, American Winter co-director and producer, Emmy-winning filmmaker Harry Gantz (HBO’s Taxicab Confessions), Hugh Hamilton, former host of the Pacifica radio show Talkback!, 2012 Green Party Vice Presidential nominee and Director of the Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign, Cheri Honkala and others, as well as with students, and fired-up community members in identifying and participating in what’s next in anti-poverty work which can cultivate a green and growing future for our country.

    This event is sponsored by the Fordham University Graduate School of Social Service, United Neighborhoood Houses, and The College of Mount Saint Vincent and will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 7th starting at 6PM. The screening space holds 200 people.

    Here is a link to the event registration page (it is a free event, but attendees must get a ticket to reserve a space as there is limited seating):!speakers/cfp1

    I hope the campaign may be inclined to share event promo materials with those in your networks.

    I have provided some additional information about American Winter below, and a link to the trailer. An “after party” and continuing discussion/action planning is planned at P.J. Clarke’s within walking distance from the venue, on a pay-as-you-go basis.

    More on American Winter, link to trailer

    The HBO release of American Winter, combined with successful screenings in more than 70 cities and towns to date, has created a tremendous amount of interest and engagement in not only the film itself, but the issues it addresses. American Winter has already generated debate on the dwindling middle class in Washington. Last year, four subjects from the film testified at a Senate Subcommittee hearing titled: “State of the American Dream: Economic Policy and the Future of the Middle Class”. This was the first hearing held by Senator Merkley of Oregon, the Chair of the Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Subcommittee on Economic Policy.

    Below is a link to the trailer:

    I look forward to hearing back from you soon regarding the possibility of Mr. Hawkins and Mr. Jones participating in this impactful event. Please email at or with any questions you may have. Thanks, and have a great day.

    In peace and solidarity,

    Dear Ursula…..When we met at Rollie’s place in Rose, I got the impression you thought I could give more. A few years back I was a millionaire but then I lost it trading derivatives in the stock market. So now I am retired on Social Security and no job. I can and will give $100 monthly along with my $25 automatic deduction. Really sorry I can’t do better.
