But instead, Spectra Energy is seeking $30,000 in restitution from FANG activists for delaying construction of their fracked-gas pipeline expansion.
On December 4-5th you're invited to connect and take action in and around Burrillville. Join us for a community dinner focused on making connections and celebrating two years of resistance to Spectra's Northeast pipeline expansions, followed up by a day of action:
Friday, December 4th Community Dinner and food & coat drive from 6-9pm at the Beckwith-Bruckshaw Lodge located at 50 Lodge Road in Burrillville.
Saturday, December 5th Where's OUR Restitution? Rally and Action at 10am. Park on Eagle Peak Road, which is off of Wallum Lake Rd in Burrillville.
Burrillville, a rural town located on occupied Nipmuc territory, is a regional epicenter of the fracked-gas industry. The town is home to two major interstate fracked-gas pipelines, a fracked-gas power plant and two toxic fracked-gas compressor stations. As part of the Spectra expansions, one of these compressor stations would be doubled in size, twice. Plus a mammoth new $700 million fracked-gas power plant has been proposed for the town by Invenergy, a Chicago corporation.
For nearly two years FANG (Fighting Against Natural Gas) and BASE (Burrillville Against Spectra Expansion) have been organizing and building resistance to the fracked-gas industry in Burrillville. BASE has organized local marches, countless community meetings and visits to the Town Council. FANG has supported these efforts while also deploying a number of nonviolent direct actions at Spectra's construction site in Burrillville.
If you're able, we could certainly use your donations (https://org2.salsalabs.com/o/7315/donate_page/fighting-against-natural-gas), but mostly we just want to see you there!
We hope that you can join us for some exciting days of resistance and community building.
