As always, the “Circle of Protection” will seek to serve and elevate the voices of our host community, in this case, Bent Mountain, and others now facing the destructive robbery of the Mountain Valley fracked gas pipeline. Communities resisting the Atlantic Coast Pipeline threat will come to tell their own story and stand in solidarity to protect the region’s rights to clean water and to protect their own homes and future.

“Circle of Protection Bent Mountain” is the first of two No MVP/No ACP events from an emergent coalition of Virginia, North Carolina and West Virginia pipeline resisters during the September 20-27 Climate Strike Week. “Circle of Protection: Bent Mountain” will support the second event, “Climate Emergency: Tri-State Pipeline Strike”, which will take place on the morning of Monday, September 23 in Roanoke, VA. https://www.facebook.com/events/2838386276275707/
