MA - NEWS: Rally calls for National Grid to repair gas leaks

Mothers Out Front in Massachusetts held a rally with allies on July 31st to make sure that National Grid understood we wanted them to keep their promise to fix the gas leaks. We're grateful to the Boston Globe and the community for listening!

Protesters decked out in neon orange, yellow, and green vests called on National Grid to repair gas leaks across the state at a rally in Boston on Wednesday.

Members of Mothers Out Front, Gas Leaks Allies, the Sierra Club, and other environmental groups gathered between the MBTA’s Government Center Station and the John F. Kennedy Federal Building to bring attention to the problem, a waste of energy and a significant contributor to climate change.

Organizers said the rally was held at a site of a major leak near the state’s Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs.

Protesters held signs with large letters that spelled #FIXBIGGASLEAKS for a drone that took pictures from above, and many pointed to a dead tree at the center of the circle as evidence of the nearby leak.
