Casa Pueblo, the community-based organization founded by 2002 Prize winner Alexis Massol-Gonzalez from Puerto Rico, is engaged in a heated campaign against a proposed natural gas pipeline project. Casa Pueblo and other opponents of the pipeline say that the project will threaten the island nation’s unique environmental and cultural resources. The campaign is gaining US media attention as President Obama prepares to make the first official Presidential visit to Puerto Rico in 50 years. Earlier this month, Dr. Arturo Massol (son of Alexis Massol-Gonzalez), gave an informative interview on behalf of Casa Pueblo to Democracy Now!
