Elected Officials

Fracked-Gas pipelines need political support in order to be built. Political support ensures that permits are granted and helps uphold the lie that fracked-gas is good for communities.

Putting pressure on elected officials to speak out against, or withdraw their support from a pipeline project is a powerful way to erode Spectra’s power. Below is a list of elected officials who have come out in favor of Spectra projects. These people need to stop believing Spectra’s lies – and instead join our resistance movement. This transition can be sped along through creative, nonviolent action.

For example after a series of steadily escalating tactics, culminating in the action below, Senator Sheldon Whitehouse removed his name from Spectra’s list of official supporters of the “AIM” pipeline project. Direct action works.
