“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.”

“The industry has gone completely gangbusters in the wake of 112, and the COGCC has approved over 1,400 drilling permits in the last two months with more than 6,000 on the docket. Colorado needs a moratorium until a health analysis can be completed and science-based laws are made!!!”

“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!!”

“We will convene on January 2nd to prep for the action with dinner, an art build and chant practice at Nyland Co-housing in Lafayette. More info here: https://www.facebook.com/events/369754487125515/

“This November over 1.1 million Coloradans voted to pass 2500 ft fracking setbacks on oil and gas operations from schools, homes and rivers, despite more than $40 million spent by oil and gas in an attempt to confuse voters. But this is only the beginning, our movement is growing and are voices must continue to grow louder.”
