Herring: Stand with Appalachia, NO Mountain Valley Pipeline
May 18, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
On May 18, rally with us at the courthouse in Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring’s hometown to encourage him to confront the incompetence, corruption, and climate consequences associated with fracked gas pipelines.
RAIN LOCATION: Douglass Community Center.
Emcee: Delegate Sam Rasoul.
Speakers include Karenna Gore, the Center for Earth Ethics; Delegate Chris Hurst; Professor Emily Hammond, George Washington University Law School; affected landowners, and more.
Music by old time fiddler and banjoist Rachel Eddy and the SUN SiNG Collective’s Josh Vana, BJ Brown, and Graham Smith-White.
Kids’ activities (face painting, bubble-making, making water flags and prayer flags) and GIANT puppet
We have invited Attorney General Mark Herring to join us. We request that he:
1) halt work on Mountain Valley Pipeline,
2) pursue his lawsuit against MVP to its fullest and refuse to settle the case,
3) reverse his staff’s poor legal advice and affirm the state’s authority to revoke the 401 certification it granted.
