No Potomac Pipeline: DMV Action! (Nov 4- Washington D.C.)

  • Georgetown Waterfront Park Washington D.C. (map)

**Previous event was deleted, please RSVP here**

The action will begin promptly at 2 and will be held on the steps of the Georgetown Waterfront Park directly west of the Washington Harbor, between 31st St and Wisconsin St NW (if those streets went all the way south to the water.)
-----------------------------------------------------------------
A high risk natural gas pipeline is currently being considered in the region that threatens the entire Potomac Watershed - a major freshwater source for DC, Maryland, and Virginia residents.

Over the past few months, DC, Virginia, WV and Maryland residents have built a strong collective resistance to this pipeline through events, protests and gatherings throughout the region.

Now, DC activists will host an event to bring more DC residents into the campaign and help DMV residents come to together to stand up against the Potomac Pipeline that threatens our prescious drinking water. Ultimately, MD Governor Larry Hogan will decide the fate of the pipeline so now is the time to show our resistance across the region. DC residents must do our part to influence the DC Council to publicly oppose the pipeline and send a strong message to Hogan.

The proposed pipeline would carry fracked gas under the Potomac River. It is being built by the notorious TransCanada Corporation – the company behind the Keystone XL Pipeline. The pipeline is slated to route through very porous bedrock under the Potomac River. Because the bedrock is full of holes and fissures, it is very easy for any pollutants to enter our drinking water sources. If gas from the pipeline were to leak into this system, the safety hazard would be significant.

We must all come together and show we will stand for clean drinking water and against fossil fuel infrastructure!
Please join us for a celebration of the river and a rally for all DMV pipeline activists on November 4! Speaker list to come shortly!

The rally will be held on the steps of the Georgetown Waterfront Park. The steps are located directly west of the Washington Harbor and are between 31st St NW and Wisconsin Ave NW if those streets continued south to the water. See you there!!
