Through a sustained campaign of nonviolent civil disobedience, we are building a culture of resistance to the fossil fuel industry in Massachusetts and beyond. Currently, Spectra Energy is building a pipeline carrying fracked gas in West Roxbury, Boston, Massachusetts, and we are shutting it down. We stand with the residents of West Roxbury whose health and safety has been jeopardized by this project. We stand with people all over the world who are already suffering the affects of our unraveling climate.

“I am taking action today because after 10 years of working with countless others to ensure a swift, complete, and just transition to safe energy within the bounds of the law, I have no other recourse to protect my children and I can’t in good conscience stand by while some commit crimes against humanity. It is time we stop this madness.”
