Article 97 T-Shirt

Wear Article 97 of the Massachusetts Constitution with pride!  These $25 shirts benefit Mount Grace's work defending protected lands from the proposed Tennessee Gas Pipeline.  Article 97, passed in 1972, guarantees the people of Massachusetts the right to clean air and water, freedom from excessive and unnecessary noise, and the natural, scenic, historic, and esthetic qualities of their environment.  Because of this amendment, a two-thirds vote of the Massachusetts Legislature is required before using public conservation lands for any non-conservation purpose.
