THIS VIDEO DRAMATICALLY DEMONSTRATES THE DANGERS AND DEVASTATION THAT WE ARE ALL FACING IF KINDER MORGAN IS ALLOWED TO BUILD A FRACKED GAS PIPELINE THROUGH OUR VALLEY, IN NEW YORK, NEW HAMPSHIRE AND ELSEWHERE.
IT IS A POWERFUL VIDEO… AND – THE VIDEO NEEDS A SONG. WE HAVE A SONG THAT WE BELIEVE WILL UPLIFT AND STRENGTHEN FOLKS IN THE FIGHT. WE WANT TO GET OUR SONG OUT TO FOLKS ACROSS THE AREA AND THE NATION.
GO TO WWW.INDIEGOGO.COM AND LOOK FOR “TIME TO STOP THE PIPELINES” YOUR SUPPORT WILL HELP US GET OUR SONG RECORDED AND OUT THERE TO THOUSANDS OF FOLKS WHO ARE IN SHOCK ABOUT THE LOSS OF THEIR WAY OF LIFE! THANK YOU ALL!
We’re really excited to have launched a new campaign on Indiegogo – that will help us raise money to support a high quality audio and video recording of our Anti-pipeline Song and Spoken Word piece.
Go to Indiegogo and look for “Time To Stop The Pipelines” or use this link:
We so much would appreciate your support!
Our aim is to stop the building of a fracked gas pipeline through our beautiful Valley.
We want to reach people who have not yet understood what a destructive effect that a pipeline and its compressor stations will have on our life as we know it. Our water, land and air are all at risk. Our children’s future is at stake!
We also want to give folks a song to uplift and strengthen them in the fight against fracking and fracked gas pipelines.
There are some great “perks” for those of you who want to contribute – so check us out on Indiegogo.
