Rally on July 13th at National Mall to Protest Cove Point LNG Export Terminal

RE: July 13th Cove Point Rally in Washington, DC

In just 10 days, people from across the Mid-Atlantic will be marching through the streets of Washington, DC to stop fracked gas exports at Cove Point. As my friend Bill McKibben said by video invitation,“It’s a doable, winnable fight – if we show up.”1

With a Cove Point decision pending from President Obama’s Federal Energy Regulatory Commission as early as this August, we need to show up — in our biggest numbers yet.

Will you be there on July 13th? Stand with us in Washington to say NO to gas exports at Cove Point, NO to more fracking and pipelines — and a loud and proud YES to the wind and solar power that won’t leak, explode or flood our communities.

What: Rally to Stop Fracked Gas Exports at Cove Point and Beyond!

When: July 13th 12:30-3:30PM

Where: Rally begins west of the U.S. Capitol on the National Mall. Meet at the intersection of 3rd St NW and Madison Drive NW, Washington, DC 20216. March to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

Transportation: Bus seats are available from Calvert County, MD, Charlottesville, VA, Richmond, VA, the Philadelphia area, and New York City. Click here for bus info and the rally ride board.

Sign up here to march with us July 13th in DC, and ensure you get updates on all the final logistics.

We’re all connected in this anti-fracking movement — upstream, downstream, and everywhere in between. Just look at who’s coming to DC:

Karen Feridun is coming from Pennsylvania because gas exports at Cove Point will mean more fracking by companies like Cabot Oil & Gas — and more communities facing spills, illnesses, and undrinkable water.

People are busing in from across Virginia, where neighbors are rising up to fight three new gas pipeline proposals that could cut across farms, parks, and even the George Washington National Forest.

Scientist Sandra Steingraber is coming from New York, where a recent court victory affirmed the rights of towns to ban fracking, because, “The only things Americans get from LNG exports are terrifying new health and safety threats, worsening climate instability, and higher heating bills — all so that the gas industry can make bigger profits from fracking us.”

Will you be there to stand with us? Sign up here to march against fracked gas exports July 13th in DC.
