Tuesday in NYC: Tell Governor Cuomo: Don’t lift New York’s fracking ban!

Join the rally in front of Gov. Cuomo’s office.

Tell Gov. Cuomo to protect New York’s water from dangerous fracking. Attend the rally across from his Manhattan office on Tuesday.

Dear Friend,

Since Governor Cuomo’s Department of Environmental Conservation issued recommendations to lift New York State’s ban on fracking, and open 85% of the state to this dangerous drilling method, grassroots opposition has been fierce.

Nearly 30,000 New Yorkers have signed our petition to Governor Cuomo, and more than 1500 activists have made calls to his office. Now, we need to keep up the pressure on.

Tuesday in Manhattan, our friends at Food and Water watch are organizing a rally to send a message to Governor Cuomo that he must reconsider this plan to endanger New York’s water. The details are below. Can you be there?

Manhattan Rally to tell Gov. Cuomo: Don’t lift New York’s fracking ban!

WHEN: Tuesday, July 26th, 12 pm.
WHERE: 633 Third Avenue, New York City, 10017

The Department of Environmental Conservation is recommending opening the majority of the state to fracking. And while the watersheds of New York City and Syracuse would be protected, the recommended protection of these areas is an acknowledgment of the dangers fracking poses to our water.

All New York water must be protected from this dangerous method of gas drilling.

As the Governor’s administration continues working on this policy over the summer, we need to send a strong message that New Yorkers are going to keep fighting this bad decision until all New York water is protected.

RSVP to attend the rally in New York City Tuesday.

Thank you for protecting our water from fracking.
