COLONIE -- If you were driving in the area of Wolf Road and Central Avenue on Monday, you may have noticed the 'Grannies for Peace.'
The group came out to raise awareness for the effect war has on the environment. They were dressed in red, carrying signs - and in some cases, broken hearts.
'Grannies for Peace' argues that war is the largest user of fuel, and that has a huge impact on the environment. "We have been aware of the impact of war on people - on civilians and the military - but now we have to think again not only of the impact on people, but on the world that we are living in," said one group member.
