Afternoon-Evening — Protest the Dominion Cove Point gas export terminal and refinery being constructed in the middle of a residential community in Calvert County, MD. We will travel to the community to join We Are Cove Point and Calvert Citizens for a Healthy Community for no gas exports! Why? TPP and TTIP would increase the export of fracked gas from the US to Japan (TPP) and the EU (TTIP), making it harder to stop gas export (and fracking upstream) in Calvert County and across the country.
We will likely set up an overnight occupation at the beginning of the week for those who are interested in participating. Keep your eyes peeled for more info. If you are still around on Thursday morning there will be actions in DC related to Fracking.
What to Bring:
If you are coming to any of the actions bring musical instruments, drums, noise making devices, banners, props, signs, costumes, art, or anything else you want to share! Be creative! We will also have lots of art and props (blockade art, we the people banners, toilet paper luminaries and giant plungers (for Monday evening), vertical banners and more). Invite all of your friends!
