NationWide Mass Demonstration Against ALL Pipelines: (June 9 Davenport FL)

  • 6525 Osceola Polk Line Road Davenport, FL, 33896 United States (map)

Join us in putting an end to the Sabal Trail Pipeline at the Central Florida Hub Compression Station in Osceola County. This is the connection site for Sabal Trail and the SouthEast Connection which extends to Lake Okeechobee. 

Actions from the resistance have pushed back the deadline an entire 30 days. With your help we can prevent gas from ever running through this pipeline. 

We demand:
- A revocation of the permits for Sabal Trail Transmission LLC and Florida SouthEast Connection
- Paying customers have the right to choose clean, renewable energy
- No fracked gas in Florida

Solidarity events will be taking place nationwide. The movement is strong and growing, we will be compiling footage from all events.

There will be signs and banners, but please bring your ideas and enthusiasm. We will end the fossil fuel empire!

The demonstration will be taking place 06/09/2017 at Central Florida Pipeline Corporation near Davenport from 10AM-4 PM! The pinned location will be posted prior to the mass demonstration.

UPDATE:

With the recent FERC confirmation hearings 5 of our Water Protectors were arrested for speaking up for our rights and demand that this commission be held accountable for their actions. Sabal Trail Transmission LLC was intended to be running fracked gas by June 5th, thankfully that is not the case. Our actions have slowed them down past their deadline, which is something we should all be proud about.

On June 9th, we will be marching in demand that the fracked gas does not run through those pipes. We demand a revocation of the permits. And we demand the option to choose clean, renewable energy. 

The event schedule:
10:00 AM - Checkpoint, bring your cellphones for this!
10:30 AM - Circle of Acknowledgement, a healing circle will be held by one of our Native speakers
11:00 AM - March begins
01:00 PM - Speakers and music
03:30 PM - Feedback and closing circle

Parking will be held at 6812 Osceola Polk Line Rd, Davenport, Florida. Follow the cones.

We will have a water station, please bring reusable water bottles! We are trying to be as waste-free as possible, so we encourage you to bring some snacks as well. Along with signs and great energy!

We are directing our message to FERC and our Senators who allowed this disaster to occur. We are on the path to green energy, we must not allow private entities to take over what rightfully belongs to The People!
