North Carolina Mobilizes to Stop the Atlantic Coast Pipeline! Walks planned for Nov. 19!

November 19, 2016

WALK TO PROTECT OUR PEOPLE AND THE PLACES WE LIVE: STOP THE PIPELINE

untitled-10

The $5 billion Atlantic Coast Pipeline has been proposed by Duke Energy and Dominion Resources to bring fracked gas from West Virginia, through Virginia. and through North Carolina almost to the South Carolina border. It will endanger and otherwise do enormous damage to homes, farms, wetlands, rivers, mountains, and communities along its entire 500 mile route. In addition it will contribute enormously to climate change, and to extreme weather events like Hurricane Mathew which devastated some of the counties which the ACP is proposed to pass through. Along the entire route, individuals, communities, and organizations are coming together to prevent its construction.
.

On Saturday, November 19 there will be three walks in three counties.
