Support Camp Granny Smith and WV Pipeline Resistors

A new pipeline resistance camp has emerged in West Virginia’s Eastern Panhandle, where the Eastern Panhandle Protectors need your help in stopping an extension of the Mountaineer Gas Pipeline for a proposed Rockwool mineral wool factory.

The fracked-gas pipeline extension appears crucial to the viability of the factory, which will require natural gas, coal, and pet coke to fire its furnaces to a temperature hot enough to melt rock — and in the process release polluting emissions and endangering the local water supply.

Rockwool, based in Denmark, would be unable to build such a plant in that country because it would violate Danish environmental laws. Instead, Rockwool chose Jefferson County, W.Va., near struggling communities of color and low-income families.

Despite widespread opposition, the West Virginia Department of Environment approved the pipeline extention’s permit March 29, without a public hearing.

Eastern Panhandle Protectors has set up Camp Granny Smith to put bodies on the line to protect families and natural communities from poisoned water and air. Your help will support camp expenses and resistant efforts, as these protectors refuse to consent to ecocide.
