“Climate Emergency: Tri-State Pipeline Strike” will kick off at 10:00 AM in downtown Roanoke, VA, Monday, September 23, 2019!
As part of the Global Climate Strike week of action, we will be joining with residents and landowners across WV, VA, and NC who are impacted by the proposed Mountain Valley and Atlantic Coast fracked gas pipelines and other climate-impacting threats.
This is a public, permitted, and very family-friendly event! ALL ARE WELCOME!
We will be occupying Wells Fargo Plaza at Salem Avenue and Market Street in downtown Roanoke near the Wells Fargo Tower and Sun Trust bank – two of the largest investors in both the ACP and MVP.
This public event is the second of two NO MVP / NO ACP actions coordinated by a tri-state coalition of WV, NC, and VA pipeline resisters. The “Circle of Protection” event will take place the day before on Sunday, Sept. 22, and will seek to serve and elevate the voices of the host community, in this case, Bent Mountain, and others now facing the destructive robbery of the Mountain Valley fracked gas pipeline. Communities resisting the Atlantic Coast Pipeline threat will come to tell their own story and stand in solidarity to protect the region’s rights to clean water and to protect their own homes and future.
