Opportunities to Get Involved with the Fight against Dominion Cove Point!

Dominion Cove Point teach-in • June 23, 7 p.m.
Southern Community Center, 20 Appeal Ln., Lusby, MD

This teach-in will look at the impacts the Dominion Cove Point LNG export terminal and liquefaction plant would have if the construction is completed and it becomes operational. Already, residents are finding it increasingly difficult to go about their lives during the construction phase. If it goes online, people will be faced with increased health issues, continuous loud noise, light pollution, further degradation of this part of the Chesapeake Bay, and the ever-present risk of a catastrophic explosion. Further away, this project would directly enable a vast increase in fracking and natural gas infrastructure across the eastern US.

Join us to learn more about these issues and how to plug in with endeavors to stop this project from being completed. For more information, write donny@wearecovepoint.org.

The phrase “direct action gets the goods” is tried and true. This will be a general training on non-violent direct action tactics and theory, covering why direct action might be used and how it can create power. We’ll look at different tactics other campaigns have used and go through exercises to help prepare people for participation in a direct action. There are many tricks and tips to help make sure actions are as effective as they can be and produce the results we’re looking for. This training will seek to walk through all of this in an empowering and accessible manner.
