Actions in Albany to Prevent Unsafe Gas

Support Grassroots Actions in Albany

A coalition of groups will have a press conference in
Albany tomorrow, Thursday July 7th, to call for a statewide ban on
fracking and deliver a sign-on letter to Governor Cuomo asking to put
scientific evidence and the health of New Yorkers over the interests of the oil
and gas corporations. The New York State Department of Conservation has implied
that drilling is unsafe by banning it in the New York City and Syracuse
watersheds and other state lands.  This action is to demand that all New
Yorkers get the same protection.

In another
development, tomorrow, Citizens Campaign for the Environment will be releasing
the results from their mapping project of lands leased by gas developers
throughout the 8 counties in the Finger Lakes Region of New York.  These
maps will show the extent to which this important agricultural and tourism
region is seriously threatened by the impacts of the industrialization of the
landscape by the gas industry.

Building, LCA Room, Albany, NY

While your
presence at these press conferences would be desirable, you can also make a
strong statement by calling Governor Cuomo’s office to tell him that his plan
to push hydraulic fracturing in New York
State puts New Yorkers at too great a risk and must be abandoned.  You can
reach the Governor’s office by calling (518) 474-8390 and (212) 681-4580.
