On Sept. 21, the Georgia Climate Change Coalition and a newly created, 350.org Local Group—Athens will host “Draw the Line—Stop the Keystone XL Pipeline.” Protestors will gather at the D.W. Brooks Mall on UGA’s south campus at 10 a.m. The march will pass UGA’s coal-fired power plant through campus to convene at Athens’ City Hall where GC3 will announce an ACC Fossil Free/Divestment campaign.

How to get to the Sept. 21 Anti-Pipeline Rally:
We want to encourage alternative transportation at all times but, since this rally takes place on a UGA home game day, traffic & parking will be extremely difficult. If you don’t live close enough to conveniently walk or ride a bike to the rally, we suggest you take a bus. If you must drive, please carpool.
- Athens Transit routes 5 stops on campus in front of Park Hall. From here it is about a 20 min walk along Sanford Drive through East Campus to Green St. where one can access the rally site. For info, visit: http://athenstransit.com/routes-and-fares/routes-by-number/route-5/&slot=sat&schtp=3
- Free parking is available at several locations on South and East Campuses within a short walk of the rally site. Be aware that competition for these parking spots on a game day will be fierce. To view a map of parking areas on UGA campus, visit: http://www.ugaparkingmap.com/?rel=1
