S T A N D : A Friendly City Benefit for Peters Mountain Stand

Tuesday, April 17th, 2018,
7:00 – 11:00PM
Facebook event link here.

The event is FREE.

Since Febraury 26th, 2018, Mountain Valley Pipeline resistors have been perched in trees high up on the Monroe County, West Virginia side of Peters Mountain.

And on March 28th, 2018, a monopod structure occupied by one resistor on the Narrows, VA side of the mountain was erected as an aerial blockade of a Forest Service access road used for pipeline construction.

Updates here and here.

MVP was permitted to fell trees in this area until March 31st due to restrictions on disruption of migratory bird habitats. That date has come and gone, and tree felling is now restricted until November.

These folks are standing up for thousands of Virginians and West Virginians, who have taken all legal measures to defeat MVP, so far unsuccessfully. They are standing up for millions of people who depend on healthy headwaters of their drinking water sources. They are standing up for our clean water, our irreplaceable wild habitats, our "protected" National Forests and threatened species, our family farms and communities – and especially Peters Mountain.

They will face thousands of dollars in fines, SLAPP suits, and most likely jail time for their incredible action.

So, let's raise some dough for these brave folks!

Spread the word! Bring a friend! Bring three!

"… we survive not because we are fitter or superior, but because we cooperate. All natural systems seem to demonstrate that working together for the collective good—working in community—is what actually pulls us through. Cooperation of many cells runs the sap up the trees and the blood through our veins. Every living being is in fact a complexity of collaborative elements, functioning within a larger framework of collaborative systems." - Lynn Elizabeth
