(message from Zack Malitz, Campaign Manager, CREDO Action from Working Assets)
What: Rally and Hearing to tell Governor Brown: Don’t Frack California!
When: Tuesday, December 10th. Rally at 5:30 p.m., Hearing from 4 p.m. – 8 p.m.
Where: Oakland Convention Center, 550 10th Street, Oakland, CA 94607
This Tuesday, we have a major opportunity to mobilize and pressure Governor Brown to ban fracking in California.
Governor Brown’s administration is holding a public hearing on its planned environmental study of the risks that fracking poses to California. We’re working with our allies to organize a rally outside of the hearing to make it clear that we’re opposed to fracking in California.
Unfortunately, Governor Brown has put the cart before the horse in deciding whether to frack California. Instead of waiting for the state to study the risks posed by fracking, Governor Brown has allowed fracking to expand unchecked before we have any assurance that it is safe.
It’s bad enough that Governor Brown’s proposed fracking regulations will not protect California communities or the climate from fracking.1 That these regulations will be completed before the state finishes studying fracking is downright reckless and a shocking about-face for Governor Brown, who has built his legacy in part on being an environmental champion.
