So many of us were working incredibly hard to stop the Keystone XL pipeline and we won this round. I got arrested in front of the White House. Almost all of my friends got arrested in front of the White House. My mom got arrested in front of the White House. And we stopped the pipeline for now. We did it. We owe a huge thanks to Bill McKibben and TarSandsAction and all of their brilliant organizers.
Now we can do the same to stop fracking in the Delaware River basin.
We’re not just going to sit back and enjoy victory are we?
We are going to keep up the momentum and get ready for November 21st!
I was on Democracy Now! today – take a moment to check out the video from that appearance:
We’ve come a long way in the fight against fracking. The flaming faucets in GASLAND has been seen by upwards of 40 million people in 20 countries. Our awareness campaign has worked. A recent study shows that 4 out of 5 Americans say that they are concerned about the effect of fracking on drinking water.
Our most important stand is less than two weeks away.
On November 21st the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) will vote to approve a plan that will allow for 20,000 or more fracked gas wells in the Delaware River Basin. We need you to come out and protest the vote in huge numbers.
