Water is Life Rally and Concert

December 2, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm

It’s time for the biggest public protest ever organized against the Atlantic Coast and Mountain Valley Pipelines. Here’s our goal: To bring so many moms and dads and farmers and students to Richmond on Saturday December 2nd that we can literally form a human ring around the Capitol building and the Governor’s mansion.

This encirclement will be the first protest of its kind in Virginia’s history. After the rally, we’ll stick around for a concert at “The National” theater just two blocks away.

We have to be creative and loud on December 2nd because, frankly, time is running out. The State’s Water Control Board will hold final hearings in Richmond on the MVP (Dec 6-7) and the ACP (Dec 11-12). We’ll be putting pressure on the Water Control Board with our massive rally and we’ll be telling our new governor and House of Delegates that water is life and we intend to preserve it for all our children!

Who: Virginians opposed to these pipelines, and you!
What: Water is Life Rally & Concert to Stop the Pipelines
Where: Bell Tower on Capitol Grounds, Capitol Street, Richmond, VA 23219
When: Rally 1-2pm at the Bell Tower, free concert at the National Theater 2-4:30pm, Saturday, December 2nd
