MA - Protesters Bolster Case Against Weymouth Compressor Station

On May 15th, Mothers Out Front joined our allies to rally and led a press conference to expose the health risks of the proposed Weymouth Compressor Station.

While the first day of a three-day hearing unfolded inside the Department of Environmental Protection, several dozen members of the Mothers Out Front and other advocacy groups took to the streets to warn that the station would bring environmental and public-health harm to environmental justice communities in the Weymouth area.

"Emissions from this dangerous and dirty fossil fuel infrastructure will threaten the health and safety of the children of the Fore River Basin and beyond," said Anne Goodwin, one of the leaders of Mothers Out Front's Massachusetts chapter. "The northeast pipeline expansion this would be a part of will contribute to climate change at a time when we urgently need to stop using fossil fuels."
