No gasoducto!

On February 19, 2012, a Sunday, we got very little rest. After getting to Dominga's farm around 2am, we were still excited to wake up at 6:30 to leave for a rally in San Juan, Puerto Rico. That morning we had the most delicious breakfast of organic eggs, fruits, and fresh baked bread. We needed the energy!

The protest was attended by thousands of people against the building of a natural gas line line through the city. (The story can be read at: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/10/22/us/puerto-ricos-plan-for-gas-pipeline-has-many-critics.html?pagewanted=all.)

Locals told us that although they supported green energy, they felt that this project was rushed, not well planned, and posed a health threat for the communities where the gas line was being built.

We hear ya Puerto Rico!

Even more impressive than the size of the protest and people's commitment to the cause, was their commitment to having fun while they were doing this work.





Thank you for the inspiration.
