Historic Massachusetts Conference Environmental Ministry Team
Massachusetts Environmental Ministries of the Southern New England Conference of the UCC was a co-sponsor of the event and have gone on record previously against this compressor.
|Rev. Gretchen Elmendorf and others from the East Weymouth Congregational Church, UCC—Rev. Elmendorf has long been an outspoken activist against the compressor.|
An important update: Scientist Dr. Nathan Phillips, Professor of Earth and Environment at BU, began a hunger strike on January 29 to draw attention to the dangers of the proposed compressor station and to demand that Governor Baker and DEP Commissioner Suuberg address specific safety concerns. Read Phillips' statement here. Please pray for Dr. Phillips and for an immediate halt to construction of the compressor station.
