BXE Convergence: April 26-28, 2017
At the end of this month a massive March for Climate, Jobs and Justice will be happening in Washington, DC, and Beyond Extreme Energy will be there. In fact, we’re going to be in DC from Wednesday, April 26th until that huge march on the 29th, and we invite you to be with us.
We’re organizing a BXE convergence to connect BXE organizers and supporters, build community, discuss future plans, prepare big and colorful props for the Saturday march, and take action in DC to keep building our momentum. We hope you’ll make plans to attend!
Last month BXE was a co-sponsor of the very successful, two-week North Carolina Walk to Protect the People and Places We Live, in opposition to the Atlantic Coast Pipeline. Following that walk, BXE leaders took part in an action at Duke University peacefully calling out FERC Chair Cheryl LaFleur as she was about to speak.
And for the last few months we have played a leading role in a coalition of 150 groups working to oppose Trump’s any-day-now nominations to fill three vacancies on the FERC five-commissioner board. Those efforts have generated significant press coverage even before the nominations have been made. In the meantime, FERC does not have a quorum, cannot rubber stamp any new gas pipelines or infrastructure, and we’re working to keep it that way for as long as possible. We say: no Senate approval of Trump’s FERC nominees until Congressional hearings on FERC are held and action is taken to address its malfunctioning.
Next up for this FERC vacancies campaign: we’re urging people to organize meetings with US Senators or their staff when they’re home the next two weeks during a Congressional recess. You can find out more by going to this Facebook link: https://www.facebook.com/events/1689942584356367/
