We need your support for the Fore River Community in Massachusetts! If you can, please shirt up and show up for an important rally in Weymouth on Saturday, January 12. And whether you can be there or not, please help us amplify local residents’ concerns with some online activism!
Background: Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection approved the Air Quality Determination for Enbridge’s fracked gas compressor station in Weymouth on Friday. We are in a critical moment in the fight against new gas infrastructure in Massachusetts.

.@MassGovernor and @MassDEP : What do I tell my kids about the decisions you are? That our governor cares more about gas executives than our kids? #NoPermitNoCompressor #WeareALLForeRiver @MothersOutFront @FRRACS_MA
.@MassGovernor and @MassDEP decide more gas and more air pollution for the Fore River and all MA residents. #NoPermitNoCompressor #WeareALLForeRiver @MothersOutFront @FRRACS_MA
.@MassGovernor and @MassDEP we've made our decision - no more fracked gas. Moms will not give up. #NoPermitNoCompressor #WeareALLForeRiver @MothersOutFront @FRRACS_MA
You promised your voters you would prioritize climate change @MassGovernor. The @IEA reported we cannot afford to build any more fossil fuel infrastructure without imperiling our planet. Protect our kids. #NoPermitNoCompressor #WeareALLForeRiver @MothersOutFront @FRRACS_MA
Fore River residents can expect more asthma, headaches, liver & kidney damage, and cancer, thanks to Air Permitting decision made by @MassGovernor and @MassDEP #NoPermitNoCompressor #WeareALLForeRiver @MothersOutFront @FRRACS_MA
.@MassGovernor: Our kids deserve a livable climate. We needed you to represent the Commonwealth’s families by denying the air quality permit for the Weymouth fracked gas compressor station. #NoPermitNoCompressor #WeareALLForeRiver @MothersOutFront @FRRACS_MA
