Latest on Airtrain

Sharing this PDF from Guardians of Flushing Bay:

"Overview: On Monday, March 15th the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) released the next-to-final step of its environmental review process. The FAA has declined to meaningfully evaluate all but one politically expedient airport transportation alternative—the one that cuts between an environmental justice community and its waterfront park. This is irresponsible transit planning with no eye toward environmental justice, transit equity or potential displacement.

Use the guide below to join Guardians of Flushing Bay in our call on the Federal Aviation Administration and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg for an environmental review redo!"

link to the PDF with actions you can take.

What is an environmental justice community? Is that like a Bee social club?

I think Communists are just fine with public land. That's the entire base point of Communism, that land should be publicly held and not privately held.

I'm against the dumb corrupt cronyist AirTrain too, but don't bring the Communists into it. They have enough problems.
