A compressor station is like an enormous gas leak, but worse in many, many ways.

You are invited to the State House at noon TOMORROW, August 5th, to stop the proposed compressor station for Weymouth, a community already overburdened by industry and infrastructure.

For details, please read this message from Mass Power Forward…

“We cannot have any new fossil fuel infrastructure in our state, and we must be rapidly dismantling the current system. That’s why the proposal to build an explosive gas compressor station in the Fore River Basin is insult on injury.

Governor Baker promised to do 3 more studies before issuing permits for the Weymouth Compressor Station, and he’s already issued the air permit. We believe it is likely the other permits may be coming by August 5th.

Join us as we push him to keep his promises, and NO “rubber stamp” permits for Weymouth!

Like in 2017, we will assemble in the hallway outside his office in the statehouse. Please arrive with enough time to get thru security and take the stairs or elevator to the 3rd floor.

PLEASE SIGN UP HERE SO WE CAN GET A HEAD COUNT

Governor Baker has the power to stop dangerous fracked gas pipelines. Sign the petition to tell him to stand against dirty energy.

We need our state to set an example for others to follow. We need Gov. Baker to say NO to new pipelines and YES to a clean energy future. 

Here is The Toxic Action Center’s 1 minute video on why we need Gov. Baker to take a stand against fracked gas pipelines.

It’s up to us to make sure he does.
