This Monday, May 12th, join Catskill Mountainkeeper in Albany for the Fracking Lobby Day. This legislative session there are five fracking bills under review by New York State legislators and we need you to tell your elected representatives that we want them to support bills to keep fracking and fracking waste out of New York State. Just last week, a hazardous waste bill that would have eliminated the import of fracking waste from out-of-state operations failed to make it out of committee for a full Senate vote by just ONE vote! We can’t let this happen again...
Come and let the Senate know it failed us and it’s time for them to clean up their act on fracking. Join us in Albany and tell Governor Cuomo, the Senate, and the Assembly that you want a moratorium on fracking and a health impact assessment, so that we will know once and for all the full range of health impacts from fracking. Click here to register for Fracking Lobby Day WHERE: The Capital Building, Albany, NY WHEN: Monday, May 12, 2014, 9:00 am For a complete schedule of the day’s events and to review the legislative agenda, click here. You must register by close of business on Friday.
Save the Date: Fracktivists Needed to Greet Governor Cuomo at the Democratic Convention
On May 22, Governor Cuomo is attending the Democratic Convention on Long Island– and we must be there in full force demanding a ban on fracking. This is a very important event for Cuomo – and for New Yorkers fighting to protect our state from fracking. The governor will describe his vision for New York’s future and will ask for our support. We must show him that our support hinges on his handling of the fracking issue. Join us in asking Governor Cuomo for an independent and comprehensive Health Impact Assessment on fracking and its related infrastructure, because the public deserves to know the full impacts of this under-evaluated, inherently dangerous industrial process. WHEN: Thursday, May 22nd from 10:00am to noon WHERE: State Democratic Convention, Hilton Long Island/Huntington Hotel 598 Broad Hollow Road, Melville TRANSPORTATION: Buses from Manhattan, Westchester, and Hudson Valley to be announced soon
