Join us in the capitol to march through downtown Raleigh and raise awareness about the resistance to fracking in North Carolina. We’ll be assembling near Nash Square around 11:30 a.m. and around 12 noon marching to the Legislative Building at 16 West Jones Street. May marks the beginning of the session legislators plan to use for the legalization of fracking and wastewater injection in our state despite public outcry.
Our protest follows on the heels of a massive blowout in Wyoming at a Chesapeak Enegy drill site where 70 residents within a 5 mile radius had to be evacuated. It’s time to let legislators and industry know we won’t let this happen here!
Bring musical instruments: drums, violins, trumpets, colorful banners and signs, puppets… anything that will make this fun. The march is family friendly and fully permitted.
If your group would like to officially sign onto the march as a co-sponsor contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 919-200-0061 for more details. We encourage everyone to share this event on their facebook or on listserves they are on.
