Giles County Anti-Pipeline Public Forum
Where: Doe Creek Farm, 412 Doe Creek Farm Rd., Pembroke
When: Tuesday, August 23, 2016, 7-9 PM
Opposed to a high pressure 42 inch gas pipeline routed through Giles County? Dismayed that a federal agency can grant eminent domain to a private corporation to ride rough shod through the heart of our county and take private lands? Aware of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (due out next month) and how it will impact our fate?
Then attend this Open House to inform the public about the threats posed by the Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP) to our water, safety, pristine views, tourist-based economy and way of life. Obtain information about your property rights, why you shouldn’t take MVP’s offer for a right-of-way, the status of our efforts to stop the MVP, and how you can help.
The open house is organized locally by the two citizens groups leading this fight, Preserve Giles County (PGC) and Preserve Newport Historic Properties (PNHP). Representatives from both organizations will provide updates of the status of their efforts to oppose the MVP and explain how Giles citizens standing together can stop it. Experts from Appalachian Voices and the state chapter of the Sierra Club will give presentations about the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s process for deciding whether to allow this pipeline and answer technical and legal questions.
Don’t just accept what MVP tells you! Don’t just assume there is nothing you can do. Come learn the real picture and what you can do to help STOP the MVP!
