'Not Protesters — Protectors': Fracktivists Descend on Colorado Governor's Mansion

Deirdre Fulton, staff writer

Anti-fracking activists in Colorado erected a 20-foot mock oil derrick in front of Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper's mansion in a Denver neighborhood on Monday, demanding an end to drilling in their state.

About 230 people joined the demonstration—which made stops at several "Hall of Shame" locations including Halliburton's Denver office, the state capitol, and the EPA's regional headquarters—calling for a ban on hydraulic fracturing and a shift to cleaner fuels.
