Pipelines in [so called] VA?! NO ~fracking~ WAY!
April 24, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Hosted by Virginia Student Environmental Coalition, Charlottesville
Tuesday, April 24 at 8 PM – 9 PM
University of Virginia, Old Cabell Hall, Room 107
MVP? ACP? Monopods? Tree sits? Resistance camps? Arrests?!
Wondering what all of this is about?
For years, the profit hungry Dominion Energy, Duke, & EQT have been pushing two fracked gas pipeline projects on lands stretching from West Virginia through Virginia to North Carolina. Throughout the process, politicians and regulators have consistently turned their backs, tuning out the voices of those defending the land and the water. But countless courageous communities of resistance have fought back along both proposed routes, successfully delaying construction… but not without sacrifice.
VSEC Charlottesville will host a gathering (featuring *desserts*) for the Charlottesville community to catch our breath and find out how we move forward. Please come this Tuesday evening to learn more about these pipelines, acts of resistance, and histories of these lands. Also, *ahem* COME EAT HOMEMADE DESSERTS!!!!
