Thurs 2/5: Community meeting in W. Rox @ Ohrenberger School

Please come to a community meeting organized by Stop the West Roxbury Lateral Pipeline (SWRL)

Thursday, Feb. 5, 6:45 p.m.

Ohrenberger School (in the cafeteria), 175 West Boundary Rd., West Roxbury

Did you know? Senators Markey and Warren finally, in response to the pressure we have mounted, sent a letter to FERC yesterday expressing concern over the safety of the proposed WRL pipeline. Their statement of opposition is good news, but without more intervention and pressure, Spectra Energy will break ground on their high-pressure natural gas pipeline — which will stretch from Westwood through Dedham into West Roxbury — as early as March 15. This project is dangerous! Come to this important community meeting to learn why and to discuss how we can stop it. We have invited speakers from other anti-pipeline campaigns to share their lessons and experiences. We will discuss how we can broaden our support and strengthen our struggle in West Roxbury to keep our community safe. Getting there: The school has a parking lot. You can take the #34 bus down Washington St and get off at the intersection with West Boundary Rd. The school is about a 5-minute walk along West Boundary Rd. Questions: stopwrlpipeline@gmail.com The campaign can use your help!
