What: Statewide Convergence to Stop the Frack Attack
When: Tuesday, August 14, 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Where: Colorado Convention Center in Denver
Who: COALITION (in formation):
Commerce City United NOW ~ 350 Colorado ~ Occupy Colorado Springs ~ East Boulder County United ~ Food and Water Watch ~ Boulder County Citizens for Community Rights ~ The Mothers Project • Colorado ~ Colorado Frack Attack ~ Occupy Denver
We’re crashing COGA’s “Energy Revolution” party
Part of their overall convention, featuring, guess who, Governor Hickenlooper and Lisa Jackson, head of the EPA, as keynote speakers.
One big, happy three day conference among elected officials, regulators, industry and academia on how to rape and pillage Colorado.
We have a gift basket and invitation that we’re delivering to Governor Hickenlooper ahead of the Statewide Convergence on the 14th. On August 15, 11a.m. – noon, everyone’s invited to meet with Governor Hickenlooper at the Colorado Convention Center after he gives his keynote speech to the oil and gas industry. We’re inviting him to come look us in the eye and tell us the process of oil and gas extraction, including fracking, does not contaminate our water, air and soil.
Shame on us if we let COGA define “Energy Revolution!”
WE THE PEOPLE OF COLORADO want clean, healthy, renewable energy, not another dirty fossil fuel that’s harmful to our health, environment, communities, property values, long-term economic prosperity, and our children’s future.
