Protesters Target Federal Fracking Auction in Colorado

DENVER - Hundreds of community, climate, and fracking activists today protested a Bureau of Land Management (BLM) oil and gas lease auction at the Holiday Inn in Lakewood, Colorado. Roughly 300 activists from Colorado and surrounding states rallied outside the hotel, carrying signs, banners, art, and singing chants. From there, a large contingent entered the hotel, many of whom physically blocked the entrance to the auction room. The blockade, comprised of about 20 activists risking arrest and supported by a crowd of hundreds, is ongoing at this time.
