People Over Pipelines March. From July 14-18th, hundreds of Massachusetts residents will march the route of Spectra’s proposed gas pipeline projects all the way to the Massachusetts State House. Together, we’ll show Governor Baker and state legislators that if they don’t take leadership on stopping new gas pipelines, the people will!
Walk with us for a half-day, a full day or the whole march. We’ll provide housing and meals along the way — plus vans and shuttles for those who can’t walk the full distance. If you can’t march, there are lots of other roles to fill, from cooking to shuttle bus driving, so we’d still love to have you!
The march will start in Medway, MA (shuttle provided from Boston) on the morning of Thursday, July 14. We’ll walk from Medway to Sharon on Thursday, and then from Sharon to Norwood via Canton and Stoughton on Friday. On Saturday, we’ll head to West Roxbury to shut down construction on the gas pipeline there with our friends from Resist the West Roxbury Pipeline. Sunday will take us to downtown Boston — and on Monday, we’ll conclude the week with a final, massive rally at the State House.

Stand Out, Speak Up-Protect the Quabbin Bioreserve from DCR DeforestationHosted by Mass Forest Rescue – Commercial logging within the great Quabbin bioreserve continues, acres-at-a-time, on a daily basis, releasing massive amounts of CO2 and toxic greenhouse gases.

How Can Our Public Utilities Be Part of the Solution? The Global Warming Solutions Act of 2008 mandates an 80% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 without clarifying the role that public utilities will play. What legislative policies would incentivize Massachusetts’ public utilities to support the urgently needed transition to a fossil-free future?
Join the 350 Massachusetts Metrowest node for a discussion.  Two experts in utility policy will present their views, Nathan Phelps and David Ismay. Nathan Phelps is a former Public Utilities Commission staff member and, currently, Vote Solar’s Program Manager of Distributed Generation Regulatory Policy. David Ismay is the staff attorney at the Conservation Law Foundation who successfully litigated the recent case at the Supreme Judicial Court to disallow an electric ratepayer tariff for private natural gas infrastructure. These two panelists are among the best policy explainers in the country.

Screening of the new documentary film, “How to Let Go of the World (and Love the Things That Climate Can’t Change)”. Oscar Nominated director Josh Fox (“Gasland”) continues in his deeply personal style, investigating climate change – the greatest threat our world has ever known. Traveling to 12 countries on 6 continents, the film acknowledges that it may be too late to stop some of the worst consequences and asks, what is it that climate change can’t destroy? What is so deep within us that no calamity can take it away? There will be a discussion following the film. Seating is limited so arrive early.
The event is free, but donations will be accepted to cover the cost of bringing this film to our community.

Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative Community Input Hearing. Join us to speak out to the Department of Environmental Protection and encourage them to make the RGGI a stronger program for our communities.
What is the RGGI?
RGGI (pronounced “Reggie”) is short for the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative. The goal of the program is to slowly tamp down global warming pollution from power plants that make electricity in New England, New York, Maryland and Delaware.
Why is RGGI not good enough?
RGGI lets companies pay to pollute. But even if they pay, power plants that burn coal, gas and oil contribute to global warming and health problems like asthma in nearby communities. While RGGI reduces overall pollution, it doesn’t control what happens at any one plant — and doesn’t address issues of justice. Some groups are concerned that programs like RGGI could increase pollution in communities least likely to resist or to be heard. For example, plants in wealthy areas might clean up first and fast, leaving plants in places like Bridgeport, CT or Springfield, MA room to keep polluting. Our state governments need to show that this isn’t happening.
Also, as the dirtiest coal plants close, there’s a risk gas plants could move in. Gas plants are touted as cleaner than coal, but they actually release a lot of pollution. Making RGGI stronger can help keep this from happening.

On Tuesday, November 15th, join a massive day of action in solidarity with those at Standing Rock, and demand the Federal government and the Army Corps reject this pipeline.

TURNERS FALLS, MA EVENT
— #NoDAPL Day of Action. Join us for a solidarity action and rally at the Army Corps of Engineers office at Peskeomskut Park calling on them to revoke the permits for this dirty oil pipeline.
The Army Corps fast-tracked the Dakota Access Pipeline without proper consultation, and as a result, bulldozers are approaching Standing Rock as we speak. But with coordinated, massive demonstrations across the country, we’ll make it clear that this powerful movement will not allow the Obama administration or the incoming President to sacrifice Indigenous rights, our water, or our climate – they must reject this pipeline.

Even if the gas begins flowing now, a judge could eventually turn it off. Boston City Councilor Matt O’Malley will speak. Let’s keep making our voices heard!
