Don't Make Us Pay for Pipelines -- Round Two!

Dear friends,

Screen_Shot_2016-02-17_at_5.47.02_PM.pngGovernor Charlie Baker doesn't just want to build massive new gas pipelines through our state. He wants all of us to pay for them through a charge added to our monthly electricity bills. For Massachusetts to have any hope of meeting its climate targets, we need to stop the pipelines -- and Charlie's plan to make us pay for them.

The Department of Public Utilities held a hearing about Charlie's pipeline proposal last week, and we stunned DPU officials by turning out in huge numbers, filling the hearing room, the overflow room, and even the hallways.

There's another hearing coming up on Thursday -- and we need to be there even louder, bigger and bolder than before! 
We'll have a street action outside (complete with a giant Charlie Baker puppet) and then deliver creative testimony at the hearing itself. Join us!

1:00 pm, Thursday, March 10
WHERE TO MEET US: Join us for a street action starting at 1:00 pm right outside South Station. At 2:00, we'll go to the Department of Public Utilities for the hearing.

RSVP and get the full details here!We're determined to keep fighting Gov. Baker's pipeline rate hike in any way we can. In addition to these hearings, we've been bird-dogging Governor Baker, asking legislators and other elected officials to speak out, collecting petitions, and more. We need all the help we can get -- if you're interested in getting more involved, just let us know!

In solidarity,

Emily Kirkland
Director of Organizing for 350 Mass
