Spectra Energy has stopped construction on the West Roxbury Lateral pipeline for the winter -- weeks ahead of schedule!
Over the last three weeks, more than 40 people, including many steadfast members of 350 Mass, have been arrested for acts of nonviolent civil disobedience while protesting this pipeline.
It's clear that our movement is making an impact, and when Spectra starts construction again next spring, we'll be back -- bigger and stronger than ever!
Over the last three weeks, more than 40 people have been arrested for acts of nonviolent civil disobedience while protesting the West Roxbury Lateral gas pipeline.Mothers, grandmothers, students, Quakers, and others, including many steadfast members of 350 Mass, have stood up to stop this unnecessary new fossil fuel pipeline.

Last Saturday, Spectra Energy halted work for the day after more than 150 people filled the streets for a march and rally. Tomorrow, we'll build on the momentum and take to the streets for another massive protest against the pipeline. Be there and be part of this incredible moment!
What: Protest Against Spectra's West Roxbury Lateral Pipeline
When: Sat, November 14, 9am – 11am
Where: Pipeline construction site (approx. 5200 Washington St, West Roxbury)
It's official: President Obama just rejected Keystone XL.
To the countless 350 Mass members who marched, rallied, took long bus trips to DC, and stood vigil in the winter cold: thank you.
This is OUR victory, and it shows the growing strength and power of our movement. When the campaign against Keystone XL started, many people said that the pipeline was a done deal. Now, it's officially dead.
Over the coming months, we will build on this victory as we fight to stop new gas pipelines and other proposed fossil fuel infrastructure projects across New England and beyond. Spectra, Kinder Morgan, and other fossil fuel companies should be getting very nervous right now: Keystone XL is one of the first fossil fuel projects to be stopped by our movement, but it will not be the last.
