Hundreds to Protest Fracking in Colorado on May 12

Break Free From Fossil Fuels

DENVER - On May 12, hundreds of Colorado community, climate and fracking activists will protest a Bureau of Land Management oil and gas lease auction at the Holiday Inn in Lakewood, Colorado (just outside Denver). Groups plan to rally and engage in peaceful civil disobedience to demand that public lands be no longer drilled, mined, or fracked. The protest is part of a global week of action focused on citizen action to keep fossil fuels in the ground and promote clean renewable energy, and comes days after the Colorado Supreme Court denied local authority to regulate fracking.
