About a mile south of President Joe Biden’s beach house backyard, an advocacy group from Louisiana against liquified gas export terminals launched a new campaign June 28 at the Rehoboth Beach Bandstand.

The campaign is called Defend Louisiana, an initiative of Louisiana Bucket Brigade, an advocacy group that, according to its website, “uses grassroots action to hold the petrochemical industry and government accountable for the true costs of pollution.” Representatives of the group held their campaign launch in Rehoboth because of its connection to Biden – he has a house in the North Shores community to the north – and other Washington, D.C. connections. 

The campaign’s primary question asks beachgoers, “if elected officials in Washington, D.C., would ever allow Rehoboth Beach to be destroyed the same way the Gulf Coast of Louisiana is being devastated by liquified gas export terminals.” The group would like to see Biden stop the permitting of gas export terminals.
