People's Pipeline Protest Rally (Sept 12- Richmond, Virginia Beach, Glen Allen, Woodbridge, Harrisonburg, Roanoke, Abingdon VA)

  • All Seven DEQ Offices throughout Virginia VA (map)

Join hundreds of faith leaders, health experts, students, environmentalists, and other concerned citizens in your area as we rally, protest, and pray on September 12-14 for Gov. McAuliffe outside his seven statewide “Environmental Quality” offices.

Day 1: Tuesday, September 12th – Lunchtime rally and press conference at noon at all seven of DEQ’s offices throughout Virginia.

Local citizens will attend lunchtime rallies on the public sidewalks outside the DEQ offices in Virginia Beach, Roanoke, Harrisonburg, Richmond, Abingdon, Glen Allen, or Woodbridge. Our top message: “Governor, we’ve been asking you for three years to do the right thing and reject these pipelines. Now we ask you to take 48 more hours to deeply reflect on your responsibility to protect human life and the environment, BEFORE deciding to harm our state and your legacy forever.” We expect scores of participants at each protest with key local leaders speaking to the issues. We’ll have banners and signs and invite local media. We’ll have a giant cardboard clock showing that time is running out and the next 48 hours are key.
