Photos: March to Stop Pipeline

These photos were taken on August 29 in Keene. They show a march against a proposed fracked gas pipeline. The proposal comes from Texas-based Kinder Morgan Corporation. The pipeline would be near Keene and Greenfield. It would carry gas that is mined using a process called “fracking,” which poisons drinking water. Fracked gas is a fossil fuel. It causes climate change, which the world's leading scientists say is a major threat to earth's ability to support human life.

A red tail hawk flew in as the marchers waited for everyone to arrive. Two photos show the hawk. FERC is the federal agency that will decide whether to allow the pipeline. The federal government is largely controlled by the companies it supposedly regulates.

About 50 people attended the march, which was organized by Stephanie Scherr of the group Stop the NH Pipeline, which has a web site at www.NHpipelineAwareness.org. There is no phone number at that site, but the site says it's affiliated with another group which does have a phone number:
