The Regional VA Southside and NC Piedmont team formed in the summer of 2020 with the purpose of protecting their lands and waterways from an extractive fossil fuel development project called the Mountain Valley Pipeline and Southgate Extension. This regional team has become the Regional Virginia and North Carolina Land and Water Protectors.
Tell President Biden to STOP the Mountain Valley Pipeline and Southgate Extension!
The Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP) is a 303-mile pipeline being constructed to carry fracked gas from West Virginia into Virginia.
MVP would yield the equivalent of emissions from 23 average U.S. coal plants or over 19 million passenger vehicles driven every year.
This pipeline crosses hundreds of streams, creeks, rivers, and watersheds. This means that the Biden Administration can reverse anti-environmental actions taken under Trump that greased the skids for the fracked gas MVP.
Indigenous water protectors and allies are fighting to protect their land. President Biden has the power to stop this project. He can review the permits granted by Trump and halt MVP and MVP Southgate construction immediately.
This will be the first climate test for his administration and we are making it clear that the MVP, MVP Southgate, Keystone XL, Dakota Access, and Line 3 pipelines must be stopped.
Please sign our petition calling on Joe Biden to #StopMVP and #STOPMVPSouthgate immediately and invoke a climate test for all pipelines.
