by Mumia Abu-Jamal

Most of us have heard of jailhouse lawyers – guys and gals who battle in court for themselves or others.

But I’d wager few of us have ever heard of a ‘jailhouse environmentalist.’ Truth is I didn’t think such a thing existed. Well, it’s real, and his name is Bryant Arroyo, a bilingual Puerto Rican who has spent a third of his life in prison, at SCI-Mahanoy in Southeastern Pennsylvania.

Hydro-fracking is an issue that is cropping up in the public consciousness of New York with increasing frequency. Rallies, like the one on June 2 at Auburn, are becoming more and more common. With the DEC’s release of the draft SGEIS, citizen action to ensure the government is looking out for their best interests is becoming very important.
