Join with us as part of the Global Climate Strike week of action to stand with impacted communities across WV, VA, and NC, protect energy customers and demand the pipelines be stopped!
This is a public, permitted, and very family-friendly event! ALL ARE WELCOME!
We will be occupying the Wells Fargo Plaza (outside the Wells Fargo bank).
Here are the details:
WHAT: Climate Emergency: Tri-State Pipeline Strike!
WHERE: 26 Salem Ave. SE, Roanoke, VA 24011
WHEN: September 23rd, 10am-2pm
This public event is the second of two NO MVP / NO ACP actions coordinated by a tri-state coalition of WV, NC, and VA pipeline resisters. The “Circle of Protection” event will take place the day before on Sunday, Sept. 22, and will seek to serve and elevate the voices of the host community, in this case, Bent Mountain, and others now facing the destructive robbery of the Mountain Valley fracked gas pipeline. Communities resisting the Atlantic Coast Pipeline threat will come to tell their own story and stand in solidarity to protect the region’s rights to clean water and to protect their own homes and future.
