WHAT: March and rally with street theatre, huge signs and visuals, and a giant Governor Cuomo prop.
WHY: The broad anti-fracking movement in New York State is unifying around a powerful new “Pledge to Resist Fracking in New York” following signals that Governor Cuomo is considering releasing final fracking regulations and lifting New York’s moratorium.
On Monday August 27 citizens from across New York will be speaking with one voice to make our deep commitment to stopping fracking clear. The purpose of Don’t Frack New York is to deliver our pledges of resistance to Governor Cuomo and demand a ban on fracking. The pledge lays out that stopping fracking is necessary to prevent the destruction and poisoning of New York’s water, air, and food systems on which life, health, and economic prosperity all depend — including that of future generations.
