Stand out to defend lands and waters from A.D. Makepeace strip mining and solar projects a success!

Land and water defenders from communities impacted by sand mining and improperly sited ground mounted across Southeastern Massachusetts showed up on September 8th to protest a political fundraiser being hosted by A.D. Makepeace just down the street from nightmare sand mining and solar projects.

Makepeace’s sand mining and solar operations have destroyed portions of the globally rare Atlantic Coastal Pine Barrens, displaced and killed rare and endangered species, harmed our community, and continue to threaten our drinking water.

More people attended the stand out than the Makepeace political fundraiser featuring Rep. Susan Williams Gifford and Carver Selectboard member Mark Townsend.
