We Won’t Back Down: Action to halt new fracking permits

January 4 @ 7:30 am - 9:00 am

Our group will gather at the Colorado State Capitol from 7:30-9:00 am on Friday, January 4th, the Opening Day of the legislative session, to demand a moratorium on new drilling until a state-sponsored health assessment is completed and new rule-making based on findings are enacted.

  • Date:  January 4, 2019
  • Location:  CO Capitol Building – 200 E Colfax Ave, Ste 136, Denver
  • RSVP: here

January 4th is the first day of the CO legislative session and we’re calling on supporters of Prop 112 and the fracking resistance movement to join us at the Capitol to demand legislators put a ***halt to all new permits.*** As legislators walk into their first day at the Capitol of the new year, we’ll be there chanting, singing and making sure they know we will be holding them accountable.

Show our legislators that will we not stand by quietly as Colorado families are poisoned with benzene, while our water and air is polluted and communities destroyed by industrial fracking operations. Implore them to act on behalf of the people and not the oil and gas lobbyists! Let them know that we are watching and they MUST stop this pervasive industry NOW.

Bring binoculars, magnifying glasses and signs!!
