July 20, 2020. Press Release: Science Committee of NoBurnBroome sends letter to Gov Cuomo; Endicott Village Board holds Public Hearing on Recycling Facilities.

July 23, 2020. NoBurnBroome sent out a Press Release on a report we received from a South Korean environmental group on SungEel’s operation there: “The working conditions are poor, which results in frequent quitting of workers.”

July 25, 2020. NoBurnBroome led a march against SungEel’s battery-incinerator.  The July 25 march was a success! We had a great turnout. 85 people marched from Logan Field to 801 Clark St, the site of the proposed operation.

Solidarity and creativity infused the day while singing attempted to lead the way with “We Don’t Want Incineration” to the tune of the Battle Hymn of the Republic, and an easier popular version of: “Hey Hey, Ho Ho, Sungeel Has Got to Go.”  To add to the excitement, the march was filmed by Michael and Nicholas Yacovoni which included a video by drone. The brothers will enter their submission into Life in a Day of July 25 – an international project headed up by film director Ridley Scott. Spectrum News sent a news reporter from Ithaca and the interview captured the spirit of the march – it’s available here.
