The Resistance
(clockwise from top left) As a member of Community Action Network, Jeanne Casatelli fought tirelessly to keep sprawl from destroying her hometown of East Greenbush; Michael Kink, legislative counsel for Housing Works, doggedly lobbied legislators in Albany for better funding and programs for people living with HIV/AIDS; Nadya Lawson was a highly visible force in organizing the local peace movement, in addition to her usual work for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community; John Shannon, former nuclear physicist and safety manager at two of the Capital Region's nuclear facilities, warned that the Knolls and Kesselring plants are vulnerable to terrorist attack; former U.N. weapons inspector Scott Ritter became a nationally prominent opponent of the rush to war with Iraq, arguing that claims of Saddam Hussein harboring weapons of mass destruction are unproven.
