Climate Action: Support Burrillville In Spectra Fight
Burrillville, RI – On December 4-5th we’ll be gathering in Burrillville, RI with BASE (Burrillville Against Spectra Expansion) to reflect on two years of resistance and to take action once again.
Invenergy, a Chicago based corporation, recently filed their application to build a $700 million fracked-gas power plant in Burrillville. Invenergy has been going through the community telling residents that if they want to move away from the proposed toxic plant, they’ll happily purchase and then bulldoze their homes.
Now is the time to come together and support the folks leading the resistance on the frontlines in Burrillville and send a message to Invenergy and Spectra (who’s pipeline would be expanded again to help feed the power plant) that we will fight their fracked-gas projects every step of the way until they are cancelled. Let us know you’ll be at the mobilization by taking a moment to register.
In the lead up to the mobilization, we’ll be hosting two nonviolent direct action workshops to prepare people to take coordinated action on December 5th. The trainings will be in Providence and Greenville:
People from West Virginia to Maine have already registered for this mobilization and together along with the residents of Burrillville we can send a clear message to Invenergy and Spectra that our resistance is unified and two years later our resolve is as strong as ever. Join us.
