Join us to discuss how fracking feeds the frenzy of pipeline building, to LNG export, promoted by the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and other impending “free trade” treaties. All those 20th-century dying dinosaurs are already being overtaken by solar and wind power.
When: 7:30-PM EDT Sunday July 17th 2016
Who: Trade Justice Alliance
- Maya K van Rossum, the Delaware Riverkeeper, and leader of the Delaware Riverkeeper Network. Maya conducts litigation, organizes citizens and testifies before state and national legislative bodies in her sworn duty to protect the Delaware River and its tributaries.
- John S. Quarterman, President, WWALS Watershed Coalition, the Waterkeeper Alliance Affiliate for the Upper Suwannee River. WWALS fought a four-month legal case to try to stop Florida permits for Spectra Energy’s Sabal Trail fracked methane pipeline, and was among the groups that persuaded the Georgia legislature to deny Sabal Trail river-drilling easements.
- Patrick Woodall, Food and Water Watch.
- Dr. Margaret Flowers of Popular Resistance and Flush the TPP will also join us as we connect the dots between extreme energy infrastructure’s relationship to free trade deals like TPP, TTIP, and the March for a Clean Energy Revolution at the Democratic National Convention in Philly July 24th.
Thanks to Harriet Heywood for setting this up.
