While horizontal hydrofracking has not yet begun in New York, it has been devastating our neighbors in Pennsylvania. Some of the largest natural gas companies are now headquartered in New York State, with plans of drilling here as early as this summer.
One such fracking company operates right in our backyard. It is time for Southern Tier residents to directly confront the companies – telling them that we will NOT allow drilling here in New York.
Direct Action has been a powerful tool in countless past struggles. When our lawmakers fail us, we must use our own bodies to speak our hearts and minds and to make a point. JOIN US for a non-arrestable, family-friendly action. Bring friends, kids, and voices ready to sing and speak out. Together, we WILL send a strong message to the Gas Industry that regardless of Governor Cuomo’s decisions about fracking, the People will stand strong to defend our land and communities.
There will be an Orientation Meeting and Art-make for the action this Sunday from 7-8:30pm at The Worker’s Center in Ithaca, NY (directions: http://goo.gl/maps/XYwf) . Though attendance is not required to participate in the action, it is strongly recommended.
We will meet for the action at the Bon-Ton at the Arnot Mall in Horseheads, New York on Wednesday, June 27th at 10 am. (directions: http://goo.gl/maps/8UfR)Please arrive promptly because we will be leaving from this location to the action itself.
