A Call to Action on May 27, 2015 - Bus to the FERCus!

FERC permits for pipeline construction must stop. The climate-disrupting, community-trampling, enrich-the-few-at-the-expense-of-the-rest system must change. With climate change, we are at a moment when we cannot remain silent. We must hold accoutable those who are causing and furthering our climate crisis. We will continue to intensify our nonviolent campaign while the oil and gas industry is reeling from the massive drop in fuel prices worldwide. Business as usual is  not acceptable. We must step up to block the tsunami of new fracked-gas infrastructure that is overwhelming communities across the nation.

Pipeline and environmental activists are heading to the FERC building on First Street in Washington, DC this month. We urge support of and participation in the nonviolent demonstrations at the FERC on May 27, 2015. Our bus will be leaving Staunton at 7 am and arriving in Washington DC at 10 am on May 27th. There will be a 2 to 3 hour demonstration at FERC headquarters. Returning to Staunton by 4 pm.
