Health Study Rally – December 9th
Health and Safety First
December 9, 2015
10:30 – 11:30 AM
NYS Capitol – Million Dollar Staircase
Join with political leaders from Albany, Rensselaer, and Schoharie Counties and with medical experts to call on Governor Cuomo to direct the NYS Department of Health to oversee a comprehensive assessment of the health impacts (CHIA) associated with gas infrastructure and to direct the Department of Conservation to include such assessments in their review of gas infrastructure proposals.
If you oppose the pipeline/compressor station, please have your voice heard.
We have seen before that large numbers do make a difference. Please come and bring as many people as possible.
- Arrive at 10 am to clear “airport-like” security. Avoid wearing metal. Travel light.
- Bring SNYFGP or homemade signs (without sticks or metal supports) or make a sign that reads: “Health and Safety First”.
- Sign our petition to Governor Cuomo asking him for a Comprehensive Health Impact Study
