Sen. Warren’s 12/4/2016 Facebook post on DAPL

Read her comment on the Dakota Access Pipeline following activists’ successful protest.


Thank Congressman Stephen Lynch, who sent a letter on Nov. 2, 2016 to the Chair of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) urging him “to delay permitting and construction of natural gas pipeline projects in Weymouth and West Roxbury, Massachusetts.” A press release followed it. He sent another letter on Nov. 18 saying that locating such pipelines in residential areas “exponentially increase[s] the potential for loss of life.”

Please also contact our Senators Markey and Warren to urge them to speak out much more strongly on this issue than they have done to date. Their relative silence on this issue is a mystery and disappointment. They’ve seen Congressman Lynch’s letter; let’s keep up the pressure.

Homeland Security

Citing TSA’s own official statements that high pressure pipelines like the WRL represent a significant terrorist target, SWRL in a May 17, 2016 letter has asked Mass. Department of Homeland Security Undersecretary Patrick McMurray to take action to stop the pipeline.  Congressman Lynch, State Senator Rush, State Representative Coppinger, & City Councilor O’Malley have all expressed the same concern and are working to get action from federal Homeland Security officials. Here is an excerpt from TSA’s Jan. 2011 report:  “Pipeline Threat Assessment” (PDF).

Investigate FERC

Active opposition to a deeply flawed regulatory process that allows for unnecessary and dangerous construction is growing. On Jan. 11, 2016, groups including NFGiM, PLAN-NE, MassPLAN, StopNED, and others signed on to a letter sent by the Delaware Riverkeeper Network last November asking U.S. Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren to call for an investigation into the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). There was no immediate word from Warren’s office, but staff at Sanders’ office said the letter was under review. To show your support for this letter and to build on its momentum, we asked Elizabeth Warren’s constituents to call her Washington office beginning Jan. 25, 2016 to support the call to investigate the FERC and halt all pipeline construction: (202) 224-4543
