Communities in eight states participated in coordinated local actions last week, by virtually “holding hands” in solidarity with others across to call attention to the plight rural America faces as the fossil fuel industry attempts to build more and more new infrastructure.

The grassroots groups holding actions proclaimed their rights to protect their private property, their homes and families, and environment.

The nationwide action, Hands Across Our Land was coordinated by Sharon Ponton of the Blue Ridge Environmental Defense League, a 31-year old community-based, non-profit environmental organization with chapters in seven states.
