From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 15, Reclaim Niagara, a group of citizens "dedicated to exposing the injustices faced by Niagara Falls due to the exploitation of resources by public authorities and state entities," according to the movement's website, will host their third rally of the summer. The third peaceful protest will take place at the Niagara Power Vista, 5777 Lewiston Road, Lewiston. The group is looking to "take our message to the doorstep of the New York State Power Authority."
City businessman Shawn Webber said, "For decades, this city has suffered from abject poverty. Our roads, parks, neighborhoods, business districts and infrastructure continue to decline at an alarming rate yet the public authorities and state entities we host reap incredible profits at our expense.
"Our mission is to hold these entities accountable and open dialogue about how the generations of injustices can be corrected to help make our city viable and sustainable for the future."
