On Saturday November 16, 2019 community members, farmers and supporters shut down the Cricket Valley fracked gas power plant in New York State by blocking the entrance with a tractor and climbing the 275ft tall smokestacks.
29 people were arrested.
The tractor blockade lasted 7 hours before police made arrests. And the 4 people who climbed the smokestack came down at sunset and were up there for 12 hours.
The plant was shut down for the day and workers were sent home. As the workers were leaving, those shutting down the plant sang "With you, for you, on your side. We are the rising tide" to show them they are fighting for a just transition that does not leave them behind.
