Pledge to take action
Pledge to take direct action to stop Invenergy's billion dollar fossil fuel power plant proposed for Burrilville, National Grid's dangerous LNG facility proposed for the south side of Providence and Spectra Energy's continued fracked-gas pipeline expansion projects. The FANG Collective has been working alongside community members to resist these projects since they were first proposed. In 2017 these projects will be entering some of the final stages of their permitting processes.
National Grid is proposing to build a $180 million LNG facility in a community of color that is already inundated with toxic infrastructure. Recently a National Grid fracked-gas pipeline ruptured near the site of the proposed facility, forcing highways and city roads to be shut down as gas blew out of the pipeline for hours. This incident came only weeks after an ethanol train derailed and crashed in the same area.
Invenergy is trying to build a massive power plant in Burrillville, RI - a town that has been resisting the gas industry for thirty years and is already home to two interstate fracked-gas pipelines, two compressor stations and a power plant. A State law passed in the 1986 to bypass community resistance and force the first power plant on to Burrillville, is now being used by Invenergy to try and force in their project.
Communities across the Northeast have been resisting Spectra's pipeline expansions for over three years. The first Spectra expansion was only completed after dozens of direct actions and hundreds of people being arrested at construction sites and offices across the region. Spectra has two more expansion projects in the works. The next project, Atlantic Bridge, would allow Spectra to export LNG to Europe via terminals in Nova Scotia.
We have marched, rallied and testified at hearings. Now is the time to resist these proposed fossil fuel projects with nonviolent direct action and hold the elected officials, financiers and companies behind these projects accountable. Together we can make sure that Invenergy's power plant, National Grid's LNG facility and the Spectra pipeline expansions are stopped once and for all.
