A new video from Appalachain Voices. After working most her life in D.C., Ella Rose returned to central Virginia to retire — only to find out a massive fracked-gas pipeline and compressor station were planned for her peaceful, rural community. She has been a staunch opponent ever since and continues fighting to defend her home from the industrial intrusion. “I love it here. I wouldn’t want to go any place else.”
Compressor stations and pipelines don’t belong near communities. We stand with Ella Rose, who is fighting the pipelines.
In the video above, from Circle of Protection on June 17, 2018, Pastor Paul Wilson, of Union Hill Grove Baptist Church in Buckingham County, VA, tells his personal story of how the threat of the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline and the proposed Union Hill Compressor Station have changed his life.
The Truth Is in the Proof: excellent new video focusing on the Limpert property in Highland County.
What if anything can stop the construction of the Atlantic Coast and Mountain Valley Pipelines? The level of frustration is growing as more people wake up to the reality that the pipelines pose significant danger to fragile ecosystems along their paths. Concerned citizens, landowners, lawmakers, environmentalists and many government officials continue to protest. Join them!
An Appalachian Voices video, posted to YouTube on June 4, 2018, highlights Bill and Lynn Limpert of Bath County, Virginia, who are fighting back to protect their old-growth forest from the Atlantic Coast Pipeline.
Join the Circle of Protection, Sundays from 1-2 pm, a weekly interfaith prayer vigil to protect Buckingham County from the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline and the proposed Union Hill ACP Compressor Station.
June 3, 2018, will feature music from Graham (creator of the Sun Bus) http://solarpoweredmusic.com/ , a story from cultural anthropologist Lakshmi Fjord, PhD, Buckingham County resident and original member of Yogaville, and a loaves and fishes potluck at 2 in the church basement.
The vigils are open air on the grounds of Union Hill Baptist Church, 1496 Union Hill Road (State Route 663), Buckingham, VA. Details/directions for the event at Circle of Protection. It is a good idea to print out directions for the event before setting forth, as reception can be vague in certain parts of the county.
