Tag Sale to Support Stop NY Fracked Gas Pipeline
Members of Stop NY Fracked Gas Pipeline (SNYFGP) are planning a Town Tag Sale to be held at the intersection of Routes 41 and 295 in Richmond, Mass., on Saturday, October 18, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The purpose is to create more awareness of the newly revised Kinder Morgan Northeast Energy Direct fracked gas pipeline project, and the proposed Canaan, N.Y. fracked gas compressor station, and to raise money for anti-pipeline efforts. This event will further solidify the Mass./N.Y. state alliance opposing Kinder Morgan’s project. Volunteers are needed to pick up donations, provide tables, tarps, prepare the site, provide table and chairs, make signs, sell donated items, sell food and drink, park cars, and more.

This special tag sale will be held simultaneously and in conjunction with many other anti-pipeline groups in the Northeast USA. So far, there are approximately 15 towns along the proposed Kinder Morgan pipeline route in Massachusetts, having their own town tag sales. Many more such events are planned throughout the northeast. The rain date is Sunday, October 19, same time, same place.
SNYFGP’s broader mission is to stop the expansion of fossil fuel infrastructure in New York and to promote sustainable, renewable sources of energy. Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company (TGP), a subsidiary of Kinder Morgan Energy Partners, proposes the Northeast Energy Direct Project to upgrade its existing pipeline system in New York, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Connecticut. This project is a combination of TGP’s proposed Pennsylvania to Wright, N.Y. and Wright to Dracut, Mass. projects.
