Williams Pipeline Victory Happy Hour
May 16, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Hey Williams Pipeline Fighters,
WE DID IT! WE STOPPED THE WILLIAMS PIPELINE!!
Today the Department of Environmental Conservation made a final determination to reject the 401 Water Quality permit for the pipeline, which means that Williams cannot reapply.
This is a huge grassroots victory for the climate movement that would not have happened without you!
Over the past three years, New Yorkers have submitted tens of thousands of public comments and petition signatures calling on Governor Cuomo to stop this fracked gas disaster. We held dozens of protests and hundreds of us marched across the Brooklyn Bridge.
We did everything we could to protect our communities and together we stopped the Williams Pipeline!
We suspect Williams will file a lawsuit to have this decision overturned and we know that if National Grid doesn’t get their way with the pipeline, they’ll push to expand their Greenpoint LNG facility and other fracked gas infrastructure.
So we still need to be vigilant and show up for other communities fighting fracked gas, but for now take this moment to look at all we’ve accomplished, all the power we’ve built and let’s celebrate!
Join us for a happy hour victory celebration tomorrow night at 5pm. Here’s the link to join https://fwwatch.zoom.us/j/97924857193.
We are so honored and grateful to have stood beside so many of you over the last three years. We hope this victory can be a shining light during dark times and a reminder that people power can win.
So please help us spread the good news! You can share this tweet or shout for joy in the street.
