Love Our Water! By Seraphina Mallon-Breiman

This past Saturday about 30 GMC students and Poultney/Rutland locals gathered on the corner of a street in Rutland in 14 degree weather to rally against the third phase of the Vermont pipeline from being passed! The Activism floor/club put together anti-fracking signs with the theme of Valentines day, encouraging our community to stand up for our water!

Times Argus wrote, “It was a protest against a proposed natural gas pipeline, but love was definitely in the air when about three dozen sign-waving members of the Rutland Area Climate Coalition and supporters gathered in the city’s downtown Saturday.

Heart-shaped signs with semi-romantic sentiments — “A foreign corporation allowed eminent domain for self profit: Where is the heart in that?” and “Roses are red, mountains are green, pipelines are bad, keep Vermont clean” — bobbed above a group of about 35 tightly bundled protesters who braved the cold with what organizer Beth Thompson said was intended to be a warm message.

“The reason we’re here on Valentine’s Day is because we love Vermont and we love Rutland County,” she said. “This is a little love note — a ‘Rutland, be mine.’”
