Ohio Community Rights Workshop in Bowling Green February 17, 2018

WHAT’S HAPPENING? The Nexus pipeline threatens communities across northern Ohio, including Bowling Green. BGSU students and residents are organizing to stop the pipeline and protect their community from the increasing harms from climate change. As part of their organizing, they are hosting an Ohio Community Rights Workshop. In this workshop, the Ohio Community Rights Network and CELDF explore why we don’t have the power to establish protections and stop fracking, compressor stations, pipelines, and others harms facing our communities. We look at how the corporate state overrides local democratic decision-making and forces unjust practices into our communities. And we delve into what communities are doing to elevate the rights of communities and nature over the corporate state. WHEN? Saturday, February 17, 2018   8:45 AM-5:00 PM WHERE?

Ohio Community Rights Workshop in Medina County, OH October 14, 2017 what’s happening? Medina County residents are fighting the Nexus pipeline and compressor station. The fracking infrastructure projects threaten clean air and water, and community health and well-being. For the third year, the corporate state of Ohio has blocked residents from advancing a county charter ballot measure that would protect residents from fracking harms. As frustrations mount and growing numbers of residents are demanding answers, Sustainable Medina County and Medina County Together are hosting the Ohio Community Rights Workshop. In the one day workshop, we examine why we don’t have the power to stop compressor stations, pipelines, and others issues facing our communities. We look at how the corporate state overrides local democratic decision-making and forces unjust labor, environmental, and discriminating practices into our communities. And we delve into what communities are doing to elevate the rights of communities and nature over the corporate state. when? Saturday, October 14th, 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. where?
