On Monday, November 20 hundreds of people from in and around Pittsburgh will join the People vs. Oil and Gas Summit and travel together to Southpointe – a commercial park about an hour outside the city that houses the headquarters and local offices of several dirty energy companies destroying our climate and communities.
There will be a family-friendly rally and march between several offices featuring the voices of impacted front line communities across North America, and some of us will take action against to call out the dirty energy companies behind fracking, bomb trains, pipelines and pollution across North America
Here are the final details:
- What: Rally and Action in Southpointe
- When: Monday, November 20, 8AM bus departure, return to Pittsburgh ~11:30AM
- Where: Buses depart from Omni William Penn Hotel (530 William Penn Pl, Pittsburgh, PA 15219)
Around the country, people are fighting the greed of fossil fuel billionaires in their communities – and this action gives us the opportunity to come together and confront them on their home turf. We’ll disrupt business as usual, and give them a taste of the discomfort that comes with living near oil and gas infrastructure.
While we’re there, we’ll also visit the offices of public officials including State Senator Bartolotta and the Chamber of Commerce to urge them to stand up to Big Oil and help fight for the renewable energy future we need.
Hope to see you there
