Stand Out 1 Year

State House Stand-Out 1 Year Celebration

Wednesday, Jun 05

Since June 5, 2023, climate activists from XR Boston, Scientist Rebellion, Our Revolution MA, Mothers Out Front, Third Act, 350 Mass, and Fore River Residents Against the Compressor Station (FRRACS) have been peacefully standing out in front of the State House to demand that MA stop permitting new fossil fuel infrastructure projects. In rain or shine, through winter and summer, we have discussed the climate emergency with thousands of members of the public and State House Staff, passed out tens of thousands of fliers, delivered thousands of postcards to Gov. Healey Senate President Spilka, and House Speaker Mariano, and have spoken with Governor Healey at chance enounters made possible by our persistence.

We have born witness to the inaction and hypocrisy from the governor's office, Senate and House of Representatives, as they claim to be climate leaders and followers of the law, which requires a 50% reduction in greenhouse gasses emitted in MA by 2030, all the while allowing new fossil fuel burning projects to proceed.

Whether you're an old hand at the Stand-Out or just want to celebrate the persistence and dedication of this group, join us for a lunchtime dance party / protest and help make it crystal clear to those in power that we are here to see through our demand of No New Fossil Fuel Infrastructure!

12 noon - 1 pm
