On Saturday, April 24th, members of CWA Local 1102 on Staten Island, NY joined dozens of Staten Island community groups to celebrate Earth Day with a march to highlight the Graniteville Wetlands. The Graniteville Wetlands, which helped protect nearby communities from major flooding during Superstorm Sandy in 2012, is a 42-acre green space in Mariners Harbor, Staten Island, that’s on track to be bulldozed over and turned into corporate retail space, despite community outcry.
