Group Protests Gov. Hickenlooper Fracking

Springs Community Rights Group Protests Gov. Hickenlooper Support for
Lawsuits Against Cities Opposed to Oil & Gas Hydraulic Fracturing

Members of Colorado Springs Citizens for
Community Rights (CSCCR) will stand outside the Antlers Hotel this
Friday morning, January 11, on the occasion of the governor’s State of
the State Address to call for a ban on oil & gas fracking from the man
they’ve dubbed “Governor Frackenlooper” for his support of the
controversial industrial drilling process. The CSCCR also calls on the
governor to withdraw his support for a lawsuit against the city of
Longmont for enacting its ban on hydraulic fracturing. “Stop rooting
against Colorado communities trying to protect their people,
environment and values from reckless extraction industry
exploitation.”

On the heels of a successful anti-fracking rally on the steps of the
state capitol last Wednesday, where CSCCR was joined by a statewide
alliance of fractivist groups; on Friday CSCCR will reiterate its
demand for a Colorado ban on fracking, and then call for a full-sized
rally at City Hall on Tuesday, Jan 15, to insist the Colorado Springs
City Council host a full public hearing before any decision is made to
allow high-volume hydraulic fracturing within the city limit.

Their mission is to:

1. Educate our city about oil & gas drilling and hydraulic fracturing
(fracking);

2. Work with local, state and federal governments to ensure
comprehensive oil & gas drilling and hydraulic fracturing regulations;

3. Place a rights-based charter amendment on the ballot in Colorado
Springs banning hydraulic fracturing.
