Cummington: March to oppose proposed pipeline construction yard


A silent solidarity march in support of the opposition to the proposed Kinder-Morgan pipe yard will begin at 9:30 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 13, at Cummington Village Church, 32 Main St.

Marchers will proceed 5.1 miles uphill to the Waryjasz Farm field, site of a weekly protest to oppose turning the 300 acre Agricultural Protection Restriction farmland into a construction yard.

The Rev. Steve Philbrick, minister of West Cummington Congregational Church, will offer a blessing.

Individuals are welcome to join in along the way; a car will follow the marchers for those who wish to ride.

The march can be joined at the junction of Route 116 and Plainfield Road at approximately noon to 12:30 p.m. to walk the last half mile to the field. Parking is available at Mr. Tire.

A free showing of the documentary "Groundswell Rising: Protecting Our Children's Air and Water" will follow at the Village Church at 2 p.m.
