This fall we can stop the violence caused by the Mountain Valley Pipeline. Join us in Richmond at Dogwood Dell Amphitheater on December 11, 2021 starting at 1:00 PM for the Violation Vigil convergence event with ritual and song. Register here.
Mountain Valley Pipeline emissions would equal 23 coal fired power plants, and the project threatens 236 of our Virginia waterways. Right now, together, we can end MVP’s destruction of common water and our shared future.
Reject MVP’s request for a new 401 Water Quality Certification from Virginia and stop this pipeline in its tracks by joining the Violation Vigil Project now.
What is the Violation Vigil Project?
The Violation Vigil Project is a full coalition artivism campaign to give poignant, visual and aural representation to the hundreds of water violations caused by the MVP.
In typical and excessively complicated language, the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality claims that there is “reasonable assurance” that Mountain Valley Pipeline will not harm our waterways “if” MVP complies with the permit.
But Mountain Valley Pipeline has already committed hundreds of documented water violations. The evidence proves that there is NO “Reasonable Assurance”, NO Past “Compliance” and that there can be NO MVP.
You and 300 others are needed NOW to give witness to every single MVP water violation, to receive your Violation Poster and begin to use it, and to come together in Richmond at Dogwood Dell Amphitheater on December 11, 2021 starting at 1:00 PM for the Violation Vigil convergence event with ritual and song. Register here.
