Pledge To Resist
I AM SIGNING TO PLEDGE TO RESIST THE MERRIMACK GENERATING STATION ON SEPTEMBER 28TH, AND END THE USE OF FOSSIL FUELS IN NEW HAMPSHIRE.
I ACKNOWLEDGE THAT IT IS TIME TO MOVE BEYOND A COMFORTABLE RESPONSE TO THE CLIMATE CRISIS. THIS MEANS, I AM PREPARED TO INTERVENE TO MAKE SURE THAT NO MORE COAL IS BURNED AT BOW, AND TO TAKE THE ASSOCIATED RISK.
BY PLEDGING, I COMMIT TO APPROACH TAKING ACTION WITH HUMILITY, GENEROSITY AND FIERCE DETERMINATION, TO BE PART OF AN AFFINITY GROUP FOR ACTION, TO ABIDE BY THE ACTION AGREEMENTS OF THE COALITION, AND TO PARTICIPATE IN THE REQUIRED NONVIOLENT DIRECT ACTION TRAINING
Nobody’s going to close this coal plant for us.
Continuing to burn coal and build fracked gas infrastructure in NH is immoral. That our political leaders stand idly by in the midst of this climate emergency is unconscionable. We must act ourselves.
Sitting by the river in the town of Bow, New Hampshire, the Merrimack Generating Station is the last large coal plant in New England without a shut-down date. On September 28th we will gather in Bow, take massive nonviolent direct action to shut down this plant.
September is just the beginning. If we are going to avoid catastrophic climate crisis, we need a bold and boisterous movement to end business as usual. After we shut down Bow, we will end our addiction to fracked gas, and ensure the Granite Bridge pipeline is never built.
