    Hands Across Our Land

    Protecting Our Land and Communities

    Tuesday, August 18, 2015

    Join opposition groups from both the proposed Mountain Valley and Atlantic Coast Pipelines,  as we take a stand to protect our land and communities from the unnecessary and unwanted onslaught of new natural gas infrastructure.

    We are citizens, small business owners, and farmers from every walk of life, standing up for our heritage and culture in rural West Virginia, Virginia, and North Carolina. We are united in our goal to stop the industrialization of our properties and communities by energy companies who seek to profit by stealing our land through the misuse of eminent domain!

    Actions and events will be held in localities across all three states. We are in the process of recruiting county coordinators along the paths of both the proposed Atlantic Coast and Mountain Valley Pipelines.  Local actions are already being planned in Nelson County, Buckingham County, Augusta County, the George Washington National Forest, Roanoke, and Montgomery County in Virginia, as well as Monroe County, WV.

    Dominion, Duke, Piedmont Natural Gas, AGL Resources, NextEra,  EQT, and others would build their pipelines within feet of our homes, destroy thousands of acres of forested land, pollute our water supply, wreak havoc on our local economies, degrade our national treasures by crossing the Blue Ridge Parkway,  the Appalachian Trail, and the pristine George Washington and Monongahela National Forests.  All of this desecration would be done in the name of profit for the few on the backs of thousands of private property owners. Stand with us as we hold Hands Across Our Land to protect our way of life.

    Contact Free Nelson on Facebook or email sharon.ponton@gmail.com for more information or to become a County Coordinator for an event in your area.
