A controversial plan to build a 93-mile natural gas pipeline that will cross Puerto Rico from south to north has energized the Caribbean island’s environmental movement – all the way to New York.

Officially called by the government Va Verde (Green Way), the pipeline has been dubbed Va de la Muerte (Death Route) by its opponents and prompted protests and petitions to stop it.

"Several independent studies have shown that this project will have a negative environmental impact on the island’s natural resources like no other project carried out in Puerto Rico in decades," said Arturo Massol, an activist with Casa Pueblo, a community organization in the mountain town of Adjuntas that is leading the opposition.
