Join members of FANG: Fighting Against Natural Gas and Burrillville Against Spectra Expansion – BASE to hear about the fight against one of the biggest fossil fuel expansion projects in New England.

Spectra Energy wants to spend $5 Billion of public money to expand their New England fracked-gas pipeline system. Much of this gas would be sent to LNG facilities in Canada where it will be exported overseas. It’s time for renewable energy, not more fossil fuels.

We will be presenting information about the pipeline projects, why they’re a bad idea, the alternatives available and how you can join the resistance movement.

There is no charge for this event, but donations are welcomed.  Facebook page for this event: 

Many Thanks to

From our article, Push Aside Sam Colt. Stand Up Real Deal Sheroes and Heroes of the Civil War we find this in our opening lines:

The radical abolitionists—Frederick Douglass, Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman and John Brown—are the only figures in American history before the emergence of the worker’s movement with whom we can identify. We know this as a fact.  Walt Whitman and Albert D. J. Cashier are our people our true heroes. Clara Barton opened up the door to providing relief to victims of war and disaster on a neutral bases, with a caring for humanity. These folks are indeed our sheroes and heroes. These folks indeed stand up tall stong and powerful. We celebrate them.

After Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation and gave the go-ahead to the recruitment of black troops, nearly 200,000 joined up to fight for their own freedom.

Writing in 1861, Karl Marx said, “The present struggle between the South and North is, therefore, nothing but a struggle between two social systems, the system of slavery and the system of free labour. The struggle has broken out because the two systems can no longer live peacefully side by side on the North American continent. It can only be ended by the victory of one system or the other” [“The Civil War in the United States”]. Criticizing Lincoln’s early wavering on emancipation, Marx declared, “Events themselves drive to the promulgation of the decisive slogan—emancipation of the slaves.”
