Hawkins Supports BDS Movement Against Israel, Calls for New Relationship
On Tuesday, July 3, the US House of Representatives voted by an overwhelming 398 to 17 margin to pass a resolution condemning the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel’s violations of Palestinian human rights.
I have been a long-time supporter of BDS. In 2014, I wrote that I support the efforts to Boycott, Divest, and Sanction against Israel in response to its attack on Gaza.

Stop NY Fracked Gas Pipeline

Stop NY Fracked Gas Pipeline (SNYFGP) and Community Advocates for a Sustainable Environment (CASE) had a wonderful night on June 12. The momentum to thwart using twentieth century technology for our twenty first century energy needs is now moving in high gear.

Here is the big news: 

The Bethlehem Town Council passed a strong resolution in opposition to the E37 Pipeline proposal on a 4-1 vote with Jim Foster in opposition to the resolution. It was written by Dan Coffey, a Bethlehem Town Council member.

Presumably, the NYS Public Service Commission will take notice and hopefully the Town of North Greenbush can join us in opposition.

Here is a report about the proposed E37 Pipeline at our SNYFGP/CASE June 12 Public Forum that you might like:

Green New Deal

Summary of the Green New Deal
The Green New Deal is a four part program for moving America quickly out of crisis into a secure, sustainable future. Inspired by the New Deal programs that helped us out of the Great Depression of the 1930s, the Green New Deal will provide similar relief and create an economy that makes our communities sustainable, healthy and just.
