People over Pipelines Walk
Sponsored by CT Chapter Sierra Club and 350CT
Saturday, September 24, 2016, 12:00 pm Noon
Start: 1615 Suffield Ave, Agawam, MA
Walk along pipeline route in Suffield and East Granby. Total length of walk= 8 miles. Come for any or all of the walk!
Support vehicles will be present!
Kinder Morgan’s natural gas project, Connecticut Expansion, will begin construction in Suffield and East Granby shortly. This high pressure, large diameter fracked gas pipeline is being built to satisfy for-profit energy corporations Eversource (owner of Yankee Gas), and Iberdrola (owner of Connecticut Natural Gas, and Southern CT Gas). Methane (natural gas) is having a terrible effect now by causing global heating which is exponentially worse than carbon dioxide. To prevent the worst effects from climate disruption, we must stop the fracked methane gas expansion projects. Join environmental, faith, labor and justice groups as we walk Kinder Morgan’s proposed pipeline expansion route to call attention to everything that fracked gas projects put at risk. It’s time to take a stand for our planet’s future, and make sure that CT politicians hear the message that fracked gas is not a bridge to the future, but the road to climate disaster.
Park in the Suffield Village Shopping Center parking lot, at the intersection of Route 75 and Route 168 in Suffield. Shuttles will take walkers to Agawam compressor station. Or join the walk in Suffield Center and continue into East Granby.

Thanks to all that joined the Clean Energy March
350 CT joined an estimated 10,000 people in Philadelphia before the Democratic National Convention to pressure them to hold true to their promise to promote clean energy, keep fossil fuels in the ground, and address the climate crisis we have created.
The Struggle TV highlighted some marchers in this weeks episode and will have more in subsequent episodes. March Photos
