Clean Water for North Carolina and other environmental activists will be at the legislature at noon today protesting the expected approval of legislation in the state House that would allow for hydraulic fracturing in 2015. The House gave tentative approval to Senate Bill 786 on Wednesday.
Here’s more on Thursday’s mid-day rally:
What: Rally to stop fracking in North Carolina
Where: North Carolina General Assembly, 16 W Jones Street, Raleigh, NC 27601
When: Thursday, May 29 at 12:00 p.m. (noon)
North Carolina’s fracking moratorium could be lifted as soon as Thursday.
Two years ago, North Carolina’s lawmakers said that they would only consider lifting our fracking moratorium if rules were put in place to regulate this dangerous drilling practice. Now, these lawmakers are going back on their word and trying to lift the moratorium before any rules have even been created to protect public safety. Join us at a rally to protect our state from fracking.
North Carolina’s lawmakers could be deciding this as soon as tomorrow, which is why we need to act now. Please join us at the rally to keep the moratorium in place!
If you cannot attend, please call your state representative (find their contact info here), and tell them to keep the moratorium on fracking!
