Mar 15: Film screening: "The Pipe"

"The Pipe" is the story of five farmers in a small fishing village in Ireland who, with support from many of their neighbors, chose to defy Shell Oil's and the Irish state's plans to lay a new gas pipeline. This film has been widely hailed at many film festivals, and their struggles mirror the struggles we all have fighting to stop the gas industry from ruining our state with fracking wells and thousands of miles of new pipelines. 

This showing of The Pipe will be followed on Tuesday March 20 by a Marcellus Infrastructure Counter-Summit sponsored by Marcellus Protest in opposition to the industry's Marcellus Mainstream conference focusing on pipelines.  The Counter-Summit will take place at Smithfield United Church of Christ, 620 Smithfield St., downtown Pittsburgh.  Doors open for sign-making at 4PM, a rally and march to the Convention Center at 5PM, dinner and counter-summit back at the Church beginning at 6PM.
7 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church, 5401 Centre Avenue, Shadyside.
