Toxic Tour of Agencies Involved in Compressor Station

Enbridge wants to dump a toxic, methane-emitting compressor station in Weymouth, but they aren't the only agency involved in this proposal. Join us on a tour of all of the agencies that have played a part in this toxic proposal. We'll be visiting Gov. Baker's office, DPH, TRC, MAPC, and others, to call on them to do the right thing by opposing Enbridge's dangerous compressor station proposal.

We'll meet at the front steps of the MA State House (24 Beacon St.) at 11AM on Tuesday, October 29. From there, we will march to other agencies in Downtown Boston. Come march with us!
