Why Is Minisink’s Battle So Important To The State, And To The Nation?
Minisink’s case at the U.S. Court of Appeals will set a new legal precedent in terms of communities’ rights vs. the corporate interests of the oil and gas industry. Already, Minisink has broken four legal precedents, and the community is now poised to make history again at the federal judiciary level. It could either go remarkably well, and Minisink could
be the first community in the nation to have a compressor station shut down and physically removed, thereby setting an incredible precedent for the state, in fact a national precedent; or it will be an unconscionable failure to protect and defend the people, enabling the industry to place
industrial facilities of this magnitude in agricultural and residential areas across the country, even if corporate fraudulence is exposed, and viable alternatives exist. It’s one or the other, there is no in-between in this scenario.
