Last call to UnFrack FERC this May

May 23 — That’s a wrap! We went back to FERC this morning for the third and final of our #UnFrackFERC spring action series. We started with a great rally and speak out that featured numerous statements from frontline communities impacted by FERC decisions this month.

Then we had a big crew of folks inside the FERC meeting who spoke out and silently demonstrated opposition to FERC’s continued rubber stamping of fossil fuel projects. We also stormed the FERC lobby (non-violently) with songs of love and defiance.

You can watch and share the video below to get a sense of the action and spread the word. Or check out more photos, videos and other content on our social media:

Since our April action, a disastrous safety test blew out a section of the MVP pipeThis is exactly the sort of thing we’ve been telling FERC to fine and hold the MVP accountable about for years: Shoddy work, degraded pipes and coating, failure to adhere to safety and environmental standards. Now there’s photographic evidence that our concerns were not only justified, but possibly understated the danger to public safety and the environment!

So, we’ll tell them again – FERC’s duty to safety and the environment compels them to reject the MVP’s request for an early in-service date. But FERC has not been very good at either receiving feedback. Nor have they ever rejected a project or denied an industry request as a result of (even overwhelming) public comment. And this month’s FERC meeting promises to have a doozy of additional bad projects approved – including new and expanded LNG in Texas, and the return of our old enemy the New England Forward Capacity Auction.

That’s the whole reason we’ve been waging our campaign to UnFrack FERC this spring: FERC doesn’t work. And to UnF***k FERC, we have to take direct action. Join us in DC or online on May 23 to make it happen!

    It is imperative that we stop MVP, which has proven to be unsafe and terribly dangerous. And no fracking!

  4. Fracking is causing a huge problem to the environment and wildlife. This has to stop!
