Anti-pipeline rally set for Saturday

RICHMOND — On Saturday, many Virginians will gather in Richmond in a show of common cause to stand against the Atlantic Coast and Mountain Valley pipelines.

“The Water is Life Rally will feature a first-of-its-kind human circle around Capitol Grounds, with citizens joining hand-in-hand and holding ribbons and scarves of blue to represent our universal connection to water,” officials said in the release. “It will also feature an enormous ‘Water Spirit’ puppet created by Richmond’s All The Saints Theater Company and a range of speakers calling on Virginia leaders to reject the Atlantic Coast and Mountain Valley pipelines.”

The rally will take place from 1-4:30 p.m.
