Crucial Hearing -- Don't Let Gov. Baker Bill Us for New Pipelines!

Governor Baker wants to bill all of us for new gas pipelines! He wants to add a charge to our electricity bills to pay for polluting new fossil fuel infrastructure. 
On February 25, the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities, which is part of Baker's administration, is holding a hearing about whether or not Eversource customers should be forced to pay for the giant Access Northeast pipeline project.  

We need to stand up and speak out. We should not be forced to pay for polluting new pipelines we don't need!
WHAT: Crucial Hearing -- Don't Let Gov. Baker Bill Us for New Pipelines!
WHEN: 1:30 pm, Thursday, February 25
WHERE TO MEET US: Join us for a street action starting at 1:30 pm outside South Station. At 2:00, we'll go the Department of Public Utilities for the hearing (the Department of Public Utilities is located above the train station -- the address is 1 South Station, Boston)

350 Mass will be doing a street action starting at 1:30 pm outside South Station (the Department of Public Utilities is located above the train station at 1 South Station, Boston). We will hold a large banner that says: "Big Sneaky Pipeline Meeting Happening Here," sing songs and hand out leaflets to get some public awareness.
