In an effort to raise money for the people of Cove Point in Lusby, Maryland to help the community stop a new liquefied fracked gas export terminal from running through their community, Popular Resistance is raising awareness as well as funds to challenge Dominion Resources' project.
This is the first-ever liquefied fracked gas export terminal being built so close to a large residential population on the East Coast.
While Popular Resistance knows that stopping the $50-billion company's fracking project isn't an easy task, the activism site is putting aside their own fundraising needs to help the opposition grow against Dominion Resources and raise $20,000 for the We Are Cove Point campaign.
Also joining forces with the community of Cove Point are residents of Pennsylvania, Ohio and other neighboring states along with many climate change activists who are rallying together to "reclaim Cove Point from Dominion and to fight to save their beautiful, tranquil and historic community using whatever tools are necessary including nonviolent resistance."
Fracking is causing incredible damage to the environment, while having a negative impact on human health and the community of Cove Point is fighting back to protect their community.
After numerous studies were conducted to determine the possible health and environmental impacts of the terminal, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) approved the refinery and export project and construction has already begun, according to We Are Cove Point, a coalition of people organized to stop it from further construction.
If you care about putting an end to fracking, protecting the environment and finding a solution for climate change, please help Popular Resistance in their fundraiser to Stop Cove Point and make a donation to the campaign: We Are Cove Point Indiegogo Campaign.
