Join us in the capital to march through downtown Raleigh and raise awareness about the resistance to fracking in North Carolina. We’ll be at Nash Square (200 McDowell St) around 11:30 a.m. and around 12 noon marching to the Legislative Building at 16 West Jones Street. We encourage folks to 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 email@example.com or call 919-200-0061 for more details. We encourage everyone to share this event on their facebook or on listserves they are on. This date is within the legislative session that begins in May where legislators plan to legalize fracking and wastewater injection in our state despite public outcry. This also happens 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. See you in the streets!
This event is also cosponsored by Blue Ridge Environmental Defense League & Cumnock Preservation Association.
This event is in coalition with Occupy Well Street and the national day of action.
