We gathered today in response to Commissioner Suuberg’s decision to give the green light to the Air Quality permit based on the faulty judgement of the presiding officer. Nearly 50 people stood on the Fore River Bridge as dozens of cars drove by, honking their horns in support of the fight. We had a burma shade of signs indicating the pollutants that are present in the Basin: “You are now breathing toluene, 1,3-butadiene, 1, 4-dioxane, benzene, and formaldehyde.” Many thanks to everyone who came out in the heat to lend their support!
Be assured that FRRACS will be seeing the DEP and Enbridge in court. The Wetlands, Waterways, and Coastal Zone Management decisions are still pending. This is in no way over. And it will not be over until we tell Enbridge not to let the screen door hit them on the way out!
