Monday, February 4 (9am-2pm, Albany): Rally to Stop Fracking Approval by Governor Cuomo ; Hearing Room B in LOB
The legislature will be able to question DEC Commissioner Martens (who testifies at 9:00 am) on their secretive, dysfunctional and undemocratic process. We need to pack the room and be there when DEC Commissioner Martens testifies and for the entirety of his remarks. Following the Commissioners testimony we will gather in the Million Dollar Staircase for a rally and a press conference to unite and demand that this fatally flawed process not move forward. We’re asking everyone to wear blue and bring a jar of the clean water from your tap to hold up as well as signs. Our message to Governor Cuomo is this – we are organized and we will not let up or give up. Bus leaving from Wegmans at 6:00 am.
Tuesday, Feb 5 – Rally/ press Conference in Binghamton, 11:45 – 2:00
DON’T FRACK OUR HEALTH With the health of Southern Tier residents at stake, Governor Cuomo called for a health study on fracking, which consisted of 25 hours of scientist’s time. The results of this have been kept secret, and he is set to move ahead with fracking with no public input. Our health and that of our families is worth more than a secret, rushed study!!
We will meet at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation Social Hall at 11:45 am for a rally and press conference. Speakers will include Dr. Sandra Steingraber and others TBD! The Hall is reserved until 2 pm for a potluck immediately following the rally! Please bring a dish to pass, and allow some time to relax and eat! 183 Riverside Drive, Unitarian Universalist Congregation, Binghamton
