Hundreds of people gathered for a massive rally and march yesterday to show Spectra Energy that we're determined to keep fighting the West Roxbury Lateral pipeline. It was an amazing show of strength -- thank you to everyone who was there!
We're committed to continuing to fight this dangerous and unnecessary pipeline -- stay tuned for updates!
For many of us, it seems that nothing short of divine intervention could prompt the U.S. Congress to act on climate change.
But in the absence of an actual miracle, a visit by Pope Francis might be the next best thing.
As Pope Francis addresses Congress on climate and other issues, we're celebrating the pontiff’s leadership and using his visit as a long-awaited opportunity to bring attention to the urgent need to act on global warming. 350 Mass members across the state have joined forces with local churches and community centers to organize screenings of the Pope’s visit -- check out the full list of "watch parties" here!
The battle against the West Roxbury pipeline has entered a critical stage. Last week, a ruling by a federal judge gave Spectra permission to begin construction within Boston -- despite the unanimous opposition of local residents and their elected officials.
Now, we need to show Spectra that this fight is not over. On September 27, pipeline fighters from all over Massachusetts are gathering for a massive rally and march. This is our chance to draw a line in the sand against new pipelines. We need you there!
What: Rally and March against West Roxbury Lateral Pipeline
When: Sun, September 27, 2pm – 5pm
