Robeson County Coalition to Protect Our Lands and Waters — March for Justice

November 16 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Statewide Action to Stop the Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) Storage Facility in Robeson County, NC

Action will include a March for Justice from Maxton to Wakulla and a Celebration of our Sacred Lands and Waters near the LNG site

The billion cubic foot, Liquid Natural Gas storage and processing facility is a part of massive, harmful and explosive fossil fuel infrastructure that exists and is planned for Robeson County – all within an 8-mile radius and connected to the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline – in the  Lumbee Community and 4 miles from Maxton, a predominately African American town. The need for gas storage is unsubstantiated.  In opposition to the Mountain Valley Pipeline, the statement of the NC Department of Environmental Quality is also relevant to Duke Energy/Piedmont Gas’s planned LNG facility:  “The cost of renewable energy resources is rapidly declining, and the economics now favor utilityscale solar and onshore wind plus storage over construction of natural gas infrastructure”.

Make Plans to Join Individuals and Organizations Who Oppose the Expansion of Harmful, Carbon-based, Natural Gas Production and Who Promote a Clean, Renewable Energy Future and Job Growth across North Carolina

The full petition, filed with the NC Department of Environmental Quality on August 13, 2019 by the NC Climate Solutions Coalition and Friends of the Earth is available here.
