A hearing has been scheduled for H.3690, Representative Garrett Bradley (D – Hingham)’s bill to remove protections from Otis State Forest and Spectacle Pond Farm in Sandisfield for Kinder Morgan’s Connecticut Expansion project, on 11/10/2015 at 11:00am in the Massachusetts State House Gardner Auditorium. Please join us to tell the Joint Committee we do not support disposition of permanent protections our constitutionally protected public lands! Can’t join us? Call your legislators and tell them to vote No! Tell your friends to do the same. Help us to advertise the hearing by sharing this flyer.

Thanks to all who organized, participated, and the hundreds who attended! We had everything from maps of the entire proposed route of NED, its laterals, even its rumored alternatives… the “It’s Personal Photo Display”… booths from environmental groups and sustainable energy providers…
legislators who spoke and mingled… great presentations from guest speakers Shanna Cleveland and Anne Marie Garti… awesome enthusiasm for the Action Group organizing. Simply a great day.
