Great Ohio River Relay

Different groups fighting fracking all along the Ohio River are working together to do a fossil fuel free relay from Pittsburgh, PA to Cairo, IL, the entire length of the 981 mile Ohio River!!! Appalachia Resist! is organizing the leg from Marietta, Ohio to Point Pleasant, West Virginia. There will be baton reception rally at Muskingam Park on Front Street in downtown Marietta AT NOON on Thursday September 19th. We will hand off the baton at the Moth Man Festival in Point Pleasant on the afternoon of Sat. Sept. 21. We hope to have a critical mass bike ride through Marietta and then let our long distance bike riders take the baton to Pomeroy, Ohio. Marchers carry the baton through Pomeroy starting at 8am on Saturday Sept 21. Meet at the playground at the intersection of 124 and 833. We will march from there to the boat launch in downtown Pomeroy. Canoes and kayaks will travel together from Pomeroy to Point Pleasant. Meet at the boat ramp at 10am. We have a premonition that Mothman will be making an appearance at the Riverside Amphitheater at 3pm on Saturday Sept 21. To show your allegiance with this harbinger of riverside disaster, be there in full black attire by 2:30. Bring eerie noisemakers if you have them.
