WE STAND WITH THE LAND
My Pledge for 2017
We, as local communities, have an inherent right - and duty - to  protect the land, water and air that give us
life, and  ensure the health and safety of our residents.
Since April 2013, we have opposed Spectra Energy’s plan to run a dangerous, fracked gas, export pipeline
through the heart of our communities, using every legal means available to us. Yet our system of government,
at all levels, has failed to protect us. As 2017 begins, our resolve is stronger than ever to protect ourselves and
this land by ensuring the NEXUS pipeline and compressor stations never get built.
- We defy a system of government that tells us we can’t protect ourselves from industrial harms because
corporations have been given more”rights” than we who live here.
- We defy the gas industry’s plans to subject our families, communities, and natural environment to
catastrophic danger for their own corporate profit.
-We defy FERC’s conclusion that the NEXUS pipeline would have “less-than significant” impacts to our
air, land, water and communities.
-We pledge to protect our water.
-We pledge to protect our air.
-We pledge to protect our neighbors who have been targeted and harassed.
-We pledge to protect the future of our children, who must live with the consequences of the actions
or inaction - we take today.
With this pledge:
We vow to protect our communities through legal nonviolent protest if FERC gives Spectra Energy
Corp. or Enbridge Inc. permission to poison our air, poison our water, clear cut our forests, steal our farms,
bulldoze our properties and put our families at risk.
Check here ______ if you are committed to protecting our communities through nonviolent civil disobedience.
Together, we stand with the land.
