Saturday December 2, 2017, Richmond: Assemble at the Bell Tower on the Virginia Capital Grounds for the Circle of Protection Rally starting promptly at 1 pm. Together, we will encircle the entire capital grounds to protect Virginia’s water as well as the courage and integrity of its newly elected leaders. Bring a blue ribbon, scarf or fabric to create the waves of our circle. Wear your No Pipeline shirts.
Rally participants, along with the 60′ Water Spirit puppet and the ARTivists who will accompany and perform her, will then walk together on the sidewalk a few short blocks up to The National for a concert, keynote speaker, participatory water is life ritual, drinks, and opportunities to prepare for a revived and powerful presence at the upcoming Virginia State Water Control Board hearings.
The concert at the National features Lobo Marino, The No BS! Brass Band, The Wild Common and The First Nations Voices.
Bill McKibben of 350.org invites you to join the rally in Richmond to take a stand against the Atlantic Coast and Mountain Valley Pipelines. One day, once voice, rising to stop the ACP & MVP.
