Campaign to Stop the Fracked Gas Pipeline
Tomorrow, June 22, 4:00PM
Rally and Vigil, Public Service Board, 112 State Street, Montpelier.
The Vermont Public Service Board is about to hold the final technical hearings to decide whether to reevaluate Vermont Gas’s permits to build the pipeline. Thousands of Vermonters–ratepayers, landowners, and concerned citizens–have fought, rallied, and organized for over two years to stop it. The construction of the VT Gas pipeline would result in the largest build of fossil fuel infrastructure Vermont has seen in 50 years. Organized by a coalition that includes 350Vermont, Rising Tide Vermont, and Just Power, hundreds of protesters will gather in Montpelier on the days of the hearing. The event will start with a rally at 4 p.m. followed by speeches, performances, and an all-night vigil and encampment.
