Videos, Photos: “Walking the Line: Into the Heart of Virginia” Along Path of Proposed Fracked-Gas Pipeline


I’m hopeful that people who actually took part in this march post here about their perspectives, what they learned, why they’re doing this, etc. For now, though, I wanted to post some video and photos from “Walking the Line: Into the Heart of Virginia”. Thank you to everyone standing up for Virginia’s environment and clean energy future against destructive, short-sighted, greedy fossil fuel interests like Dominion Power (and the politicians they’ve bought and paid for).

Note that the walk was one of “resistance and CELEBRATION along the proposed path of a fracked-gas pipeline (ACP),” which urged everyone to “[s]ee for yourself what is on the line…the forest habitats, mountains, farms and homes that are in danger of irreversible destruction.”

Starting in Highland & Bath Counties with a Kick Off Rally at Noon on Saturday (6/17) at a historic family property on Sam Snead Highway in Bath (https://goo.gl/maps/JBeyY8Y2TMy), that is ‘On The Line.’ 

We will follow as close as possible to the proposed path for 150 miles – Through Bath, Augusta and Nelson Counties, into the heart of Virginia; Buckingham County – the site of the proposed toxin-emitting Compressor Station.

Our vision is of a celebratory, peaceful walk of resistance, to share the stories of the communities and the beauty of the landscape that would be impacted, to raise awareness and help ensure that these ill-conceived plans do not come to fruition.

Together, we can, must, and will prevail.

There's no paywall on Blue Virginia, and we definitely want to keep it that way! If you want to help support our work, you can donate here - thanks! Also, you can sign up for our weekly email list here.
