New fallers and a sign on the bridge: pictures of Kayaktivism 2015-10-03

Signs, no pipeline, new fallers, and a fine day on the Withlacoochee River No Pipeline! --Ashlie Prain 30.8930683, -83.3185959 from Langdale Park to the US 41 bridge: here are some pictures of Kayaktivism, October 3rd 2015.

Thanks to Ashlie Marie Prain and others for organizing this event by the Valdosta State University (VSU) Anthropology Club, the VSU Sociology Club, and Students Against Violating the Environment (S.A.V.E.), which was also cleanup for Keep Lowndes/Valdosta Beautiful (KLVB), and a WWALS Field Trip, plus Tom Hochschild was there for the Lowndes County Democratic Party (LCDP), which, like WWALS, is an intervenor on FERC Sabal Trail Docket No. CP15-17.

Don’t forget to e-comment to FERC today! Today’s the deadline for e-comments about the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS).

Special thanks to Continue reading

Last Call to E-Comment to FERC about DEIS 2015-10-26

Speak up today and be heard by FERC and the whole world watching!

Update 4:30 PM 26 Oct 2015: I called FERC and was told e-comments or e-filings any time today or even tomorrow will be fine. Paper mail postmarked today will be fine. I was told they’re more interested in getting the comments than in exactly when they’re sent. But don’t wait very long.

Here’s how to e-comment.

Simple is good: “I love the Withlacoochee River (or the Suwannee River, or Okapilco Creek, or….) and I don’t want a huge pipeline drilled under it.”

Or: “We’ve got enough sinkholes without risking more with a pipeline that doesn’t even benefit us.”

Just write what you mean and send it in.

If you want inspiration, here’s what many other people have said.

But don’t get hung up on trying to review all the background: just say what you mean. Say it today!


You can join this fun and work by becoming a WWALS member today!
