Herring, Stand with Appalachia: No Mountain Valley Pipeline
May 18, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Rally with us in Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring’s hometown to encourage him to rise above the incompetence, corruption, and climate consequences associated with fracked gas pipelines. Delegates Chris Hurst and Sam Rasoul will lead Southwest Virginians to NoVa to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with allies from across the Commonwealth and demand a stop work order for the Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP).
Virginians oppose the MVP, the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP), and the Southside Connector because they are unnecessary, unjust, and destructive of our water, ecosystems, and climate. Virginians demand real action on climate change, including major reductions in fossil fuel production and use. Virginians want a democracy that is not captured by corporate interests and a regulatory process that is honest, transparent, responsive to Virginians, and protective of the most vulnerable among us.
We request that Mark Herring
1) initiate a STOP WORK order for Mountain Valley Pipeline,
2) pursue his lawsuit against MVP to its fullest and refuse to settle the case,
3) and affirm the state’s authority to revoke a certification it granted.
We invite Herring to be a leader. Should he accept, we invite him to be the star of the show on May 18.
This No Pipelines Rally for the Climate is co-sponsored by POWHR (Protect Our Water, Heritage, Rights), Indivisible NoVA West, 350 Loudoun, Great Falls Sierra Club, Northern Virginia chapter of the Climate Reality Project, Indivisible Northern Virginia, Fauquier Indivisible, Food and Water Watch, Water is Life. Protect It., Protect Our Commonwealth.
