Day 5: Some Reasons to Celebrate...


As you may have read in our previous post, we are anxiously awaiting word on the results of the negotiations between Aqua America's lawyers and Riverdale's representation.

Meanwhile, the weekend has come and gone, and we have proudly kept Aqua America and their contractors at bay for five days. Thanks to the persistence of all of the folks here at Riverdale, we are demonstrating that the constant pressure applied by an organized community can hold up against this intimidating adversary. When the volunteers are not keeping watch at the gates of the community, they can be found starting gardens, picking up trash, cooking, writing press releases, or helping residents move their remaining belongings.

Lastly, we've gained some great media! We have now been featured in/on Counterpunch, WBRE, the Williamsport Sun-Gazette, EcoWatch, and Gas Drilling Awareness Coalition's Marcellus Reality Tour. More reporters and photographers are rolling in every day!

For a deeper look into our experiences here at Riverdale, please follow us on the following websites. Our media team is working 'round the clock to keep you updated!
