"We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.” - Elie Weisel

“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor." - Desmond Tutu

"There comes a time when neutrality and laying low become dishonorable. If you’re not in revolt, you’re in cahoots. When this period and your name are mentioned, decades hence, your grandkids will look away in shame." - David Brooks

    FERC and RIDEM are trying to exhaust NoLNG interest, each shuttling responsibility to the other. How convenient that legal language from each agency makes it easy for them to do this. National Grid seems to be running the show, period. We can help shut this down. The liquification proposal presents unacceptable risks to the entire city and everyone in it but especially to the economically vulnerable people living on the Southside of PVD. This is a blatant gamble on the part of NG that people won’t pay attention because of the geography involved. National Grid is quite wrong.
