Previous Meetings/notes

It wasn’t a valley meeting at all.  It was a statewide meeting that took place in the valley.  On Wednesday, March 5th, over 50 activists from across the state met to start an organizing strategy for this proposed, atrocious fracked gas pipeline.  We had 3 organizers from Boston representing 350ma.org, BetterFutureProject.Org and ToxicsAction.org and members of the new group nofrackedgasinmass.org which is a great resource.

Also, on Saturday, March 9th, over 100 people met in Cummington to voice their opposite to this proposed pipeline going thru their back yards.

We’re also establishing a working relationship with stopthepipeline.org from New York as they have been fighting this fight for a while now and see us as nature allies because if the pipeline can’t come thru Massachusetts, then it will be less viable in New York.

There is a very positive vibe of this being a unify issue to bridge local with national to global issues like Keystone XL.
