How to Resist the Line 3 Pipeline

Thursday, Feb 4, 7- 8:30pm via zoom
At our next Node meeting, we will get an update on the fight to stop the Line 3 pipeline and what role we can play.

Like the Keystone XL pipeline (whose federal permit was recently cancelled by President Biden), the proposed Line 3 (not yet cancelled) would bring convey huge quantities of crude oil derived from dirty tar sands. It threatens to cut across sacred lakes, untouched wetlands, and treaty-protected wild rice beds, and would release 193 million tons of greenhouse gas every year.

Zoom in to learn what’s going on and how we can help – including by taking a few actions during our meeting!

Can’t make the meeting? Call Chase Bank and urge them to defund Line Three. For more, see this guide for other ways to keep updated and get involved.

At the meeting, we’ll also share updates from the ongoing legislative action on climate bills and transparency rules.

As usual, we’ll also welcome announcements / requests for help on your own climate-related projects.

Yes, we CAN do something about climate change, TOGETHER!

We are citizen activists working to confront the climate crisis. We meet as the MetroWest Node of 350 Mass, a statewide climate activist network. Many of us are also members of the MetroWest Chapter of 350 Mass Action, which works to elect progressive climate champions. We welcome participants from the MetroWest suburbs of Boston and beyond. The Node and Chapter currently meet on the first and third Thursdays of each month, when we gather to share, learn, and organize to take action.

Legislative Actions

Time critical actions:

Municipal Sustainability Checklist

We have created a municipal “sustainability checklist” that can help towns compare what they are doing with other towns, as well as get ideas and encourage collaboration. For residents, the checklist helps understand what towns are doing and not doing, as well as set priorities for local advocacy. For organizers, the checklist is an excellent tool to organize local groups around, and to build networks of people who care about sustainability.
