SUPPORT NEEDED!

EMERGENCY CALL FOR SUPPORT

FROM THE RIVERDALE

MOBILE HOME ENCAMPMENT

June 11

Follow Save RMHC on Twitter




This morning, we were informed by a utility worker that construction crews affiliated with Aqua America are planning to begin excavation on the land of the Riverdale mobile home community tomorrow (Tuesday).

We have successfully delayed construction of a massive water withdrawal facility, permitted to suck up to 3 millions gallons of water daily from the Susquehanna River for use in fracking operations, for over 10 days now. The encampment is in urgent need of support at this time! Now is the time to show your conviction and solidarity with these brave residents and volunteers who have decided to stand their ground in the face of ruthless corporate giant - Aqua America.

Ways to Support:

- COME TO RIVERDALE: If you live within a few hours of Riverdale, now is the time to drop everything and support a community in dire need. The families that have stood their ground face imminent homelessness upon their removal. Call in sick to work, or take a vacation day - do it for the Riverdale residents.

- DONATE: It has cost hundreds of dollars to feed and house the dozens of people who have come to support the residents of Riverdale. Money will be needed to support residents who face homelessness, and bail will need to be posted ASAP for those brave supporters who are holding the barricade.

- Call or Email those responsible for fracking and the construction of this (and all) water withdrawal facilities.

- CONTACT your friends, neighbors, allies, churches, and other networks that you may belong to. Ask them to spread the word, donate, write letters to the editor of their local newspaper.

This fight can still be won, but only with immediate action from people like you!

  1. Riverdale where? New York? If you want to go to Riverdale to support, you need an address. Thank you.

  2. we're watching, here in upstate NY, where the frackers want to devastate communities, too. thank you for the live stream.

    have you thought of inviting someone(s) from Aqua America to dinner? Seriously. Is is possible to relate to them on that level? Show them hospitality at your beautiful homes and see if any part of them be touched by your beautiful humanity. Outside of paperwork, and policies, job expectations?

  3. I applaude such brave efforts, and hope for the outcome to be in your favor. Your struggle reminds me of the (dire) importance of community.
    And no one should be able to use the river in this way. Waterways should be sacred. good luck.
    I've been inspired.

  4. Remember to use OSHA 1926.1101 section K for comunications of hazards. If they do not have samples for proving that no asbestos is in the trailers then everything but the wood and metal is asbestos. That is if they try to demolish the trailers.

  5. Don't laugh, but the town is called Jersey Shore, Pa., on Rt.220 west of Williamsport. There is an exit of Int 80, and the town is 15 miles from 80 on a two lane country road. Watch out for the Amish buggies on that road.

  7. As Thoreau famously sead, it doesn't matter where or how far you go - the farther commonly the worse - the important thing is how alive you are. Writing of every kind is a way to wake oneself up and keep as alive as when one has just fallen in love.”Love Sms , Love Text
