Postponed … Again

By Faith Meckley, Staff Writer February 21, 2015
While the powers of Reading and Schuyler County have realized that sending the We Are Seneca Lake protesters to jail is costly and only fuels our movement, many in my activist cohort believe that Judge Berry's hesitance to sentence me runs deeper than that. They joke that he sees me as an incarnation of his own young granddaughter, who, according to Berry, refuses to speak to him when he sends people to jail.

Do humans cause climate change? Let’s vote.

Before myself and my comrades began lining up in front of Crestwood Midstream's gates on Route 14 just north of Watkins Glen, I never put much thought into the area jails.

I clarified to him that our blockade was not going to let anything in or out. "Well, I'm going to open the gates, then!" He declared in a tone that said, 'alright, you asked for it.' The negotiation phase was over; now, they were using intimidation. When he opened the gates, the driver climbed into his truck and lurched forward, blaring his horn.

First Amendment Rights Don’t Come First

By Faith Meckley, Staff Writer October 3, 2014
...as the excitement from Flood Wall Street died down, I saw that day much differently. I now see how tightly the police controlled us, and, subsequently, how watered-down our first amendment right to peaceably assemble was.
