NYC LABOR CHORUS: WE SHALL OVERCOME
For today’s show, we bring you environmental and labor music from the New York City Labor Chorus, along with news on some important stories:
• how environmentalists reversed Governor Hochul on methane standards.
• hard-fought victory of residents against National Grid’s North Brooklyn pipeline.
• As Antarctica's current changes, nutrients for the world's oceans will be reduced.
• Holtec’s plans to dump radioactive water into the Hudson River and how communities are fighting them.
• Africa had a record-breaking cyclone lasting 36 days, Cyclone Freddy. What are some of the details?
• Good and bad news regarding TransCo's 303-mile Mountain Valley Pipeline
• Real and present danger to Human Rights Defenders worldwide
The NYC Labor Chorus has 19 songs on “We Shall Overcome”, their Symphony Space concert CD. We'll play a few of them for you on this episode of Eco-Logic. This show is a special highlight for our listeners, presenting the NYC Labor Chorus. They are having a sold-out Paul Robeson Tribute concert on Saturday night, April 29th, but you can still hear them on a CD that NYCLC donated to Eco-Logic and WBAI to show their appreciation.
Now you can appreciate them and Eco-Logic--it's a win-win! Get one of the copies that NYCLC donated!
The New York City Labor Chorus’s We Shall Overcome CD is available at eco-logic.wbai.org or www.ecoradio.org

When the air or water are clean, thank an environmentalist. If not, become one. 'Nuff Said!
