Friends of Tellus360 and Lancaster County,
The Shalefield Organizing Committee (SOC) of Lancaster invites you all to our fundraiser, “Don’t Go Fracking My Heart – a night of music and art,” with music by The Outhouse and DJ Smiles, and an art auction, “Abstractions on Resource Extraction” at Tellus360, on Saturday April 26 at 9pm.
Many of you may be aware of the natural gas pipelines that are proposed to be constructed through Lancaster County. The Atlantic Sunrise project, the proposed 177-mile long pipeline connecting natural gas drilling fields of northeast, PA to the existing Transco line south of Holtwood, would include building a 35-mile, 42-inch pipeline, with a 50-125 foot right of way passage, through much of western Lancaster. This would also assuredly include compressor stations along the way. The Rock Springs Pipeline is proposed to be built connecting the Transco line, through 9-miles through Solanco, to the proposed Wildcat Point natural gas power plant in Cecil County, Md. The proposed Sunoco Pipeline would reactivate an old, existing gasoline pipeline, in West Cocalico and Clay townships, adding a compressor station as well.
Besides affecting many acres of private property and farmland, the pipelines would directly cross and impact much of Lancaster’s public lands and nature preserves, notably the the Rolling Hills region, including Shenk’s Ferry, Tacquan Glen, Fishing Creek (officially a stream rated exceptional value), and Rock Springs. Throughout Pennsylvania and all over the country, there have been many reported and confirmed cases of hazards caused by natural gas pipelines leaking, bursting, or exploding, and compressor stations exploding, releasing noxious chemicals including methane, and causing immense noise pollution. Much of the farmland, forests, and waterways of Lancaster County would be negatively impacted and the health of the people living in close proximity to the infrastructure would be in danger.
SOC is currently in a pro-active role, helping to organize a local campaign, to ensure the natural rights of all residents of Lancaster will not be violated by the proposed construction of these pipelines.
“Don’t Go Fracking My Heart” is a benefit to help the residents of Lancaster and beyond defend our rights and our land. It is a night to rally, revel, and rock n’ roll with Lancaster’s own, The Outhouse, with their unique blues rock rebellious sound and songs about justice, anarchy, and love. A silent art auction, hosted by Gallery360 at Tellus360 entitled, “Abstractions on Resource Extraction” will also be taking place. Folks from SOC will be on hand to discuss the proposed pipelines, offer information, and help provide ways for everyone to get involved. DJ Smiles will be providing a fun and entertaining atmosphere throughout the night.
* Submissions to the Art Auction are being accepted. Inquire by contacting Quinn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Come with your hearts out and your dancing shoes on! We hope to see you all here!
We Love You!
