Gaz Updates

What I can handle of the Gas, Gaz updates,
Fricking, Fracking.

Some spin yarns of wool,
Some spin lies, you fool.

Call for Action:

Dear friends - Sending this again in case it didn't go out to everyone,

Since 2012, Vermont Gas Systems has attempted to construct a 42-mile long fracked gas pipeline from Colchester to Middlebury. Due to widespread opposition from the public and landowners, Phase 2 of the pipeline was defeated in early 2015, protecting Lake Champlain and shoreline communities from the dangers of an explosive pipeline. And now, as the cost of Phase 1 continues to rise, the Vermont Public Service Board will decide whether or not to scrap Vermont Gas’ permits altogether, putting an end to the largest fossil fuel expansion in Vermont in the past 50 years.

On Monday, June 22, at 4 pm, people from across Vermont will gather in front of the Public Service Board hearings in Montpelier to stand up for our right to a livable planet and to defend the rights of communities from Alberta to Monkton. Will you be there?

Sign up here: bit.ly/floodthehearing

Together, we will send a resoundingly clear message to the Board and the Governor: It’s time to scrap the fracked gas pipeline once and for all.

After rallying outside the hearings, we will hold an all-night vigil and encampment to remember and honor those who have already lost their homes or lives due to climate chaos. There will be music, food, and opportunities to connect with your neighbors and community to grieve, offer prayers, sing, and share the weight of all we are up against. We will also have facilitated conversations considering how to move this movement forward and stop the fracked gas pipeline and build a just and livable future for all.

On the morning of Tuesday, June 23, we will break camp and fill the hearings to support intervening landowners who are standing up to the fracking industry in the regulatory arena.


The human and environmental impacts are huge. From the shalefields of Alberta to the communities in Chittenden and Addison counties, people’s health, safety and democratic participation are cast aside for the interests of the fossil fuel industry. The time to rise up to demand and create a better world has come. Please visit bitly.com/floodthehearing to sign up to join us and learn more.

-Anna and the Campaign to Stop the Fracked Gas Pipeline

P.S. Invite your friends to participate by forwarding this call to action on other list serves and sharing the facebook event.
