Climate March Report Back TESC Peggy Allan

Peggy Allan, Health and Safety chair of Local 4277, Thomas Edison College Federation of Professional Staff, walked with a ”No Frack” contingent from Trenton, NJ and Bucks County, PA area to the People’s Climate March, Sept. 21 in New York. “Pennsylvania and NJ are threatened with the oil and gas industry drilling in the Delaware watershed, so this is critical issue for water and air quality and overall health of the millions of people who would be affected if the water quality was diminished,” she said. “The march was an amazing showing of solidarity on this issue from what seemed to be millions of people.” March estimates ranged from 310,000 to 400,000 participants, but Allan is certain that showing represented millions more who see environmental justice as a critical issue.

Here are few of Allan’s photos from the march.
