Rally to Stop Mariner East 2 Pipeline

Saturday, June 9, 2018 - 3:00pm

On June 9, we (Food and Water Watch) are planning the largest rally so far in the campaign to stop the ME2, to show Sunoco that we want them out--and to let Governor Wolf know that if he won’t protect our communities, we will.

For over a year, Governor Tom Wolf has had the ability to stop construction on this pipeline. Many communities along the pipeline route are united in demanding that our safety not be compromised — but Wolf is ignoring us. So we’re not waiting anymore. This rally will be about the next phase of this campaign, where we become the ones we’ve been waiting for, by stopping this pipeline ourselves.

There’s one slogan the movement has adopted on signs and posters: Defend What You Love. On June 9, we will show the world what it means to stand up and protect your community from a greedy corporation.

Political leaders across the state have taken notice of this brewing movement. But the one leader with the power to stop Sunoco is Governor Tom Wolf, and instead of taking action to stop Sunoco, he has been one of the company's biggest boosters.

We’ve seen contaminated waters, drilling spills, and massive sinkholes. We fear the worst is still to come if Sunoco is not stopped right now. Governor Wolf, it’s time for you to stand up against the greed, recklessness, and arrogance of Sunoco Logistics.
