A CAMPAIGN TO STOP FRACKING AND GAS INFRASTRUCTURE IN NEW YORK
Hydraulic fracturing, known as fracking, is a process used to get methane gas out of the ground. Fracking threatens our groundwater, the health of our communities, and the global climate.
Thanks to grassroots activism by people like you, Governor Andrew Cuomo banned fracking in New York State in 2015. However, the gas industry continues to build new high pressure gas infrastructure all over New York so that they can pump tremendous amounts of gas through New York City to other parts of the country and for export.
350NYC is an active member in the network of groups that continues to put pressure on the Governor and regulatory agencies that are responsible. We will mobilize for this upcoming Food & Water Watch rally and encourage everyone who can be available on a weekday morning to come out and join us!
Stop All Fracking Infrastructure! Rally Outside Cuomo Fundraiser
Thursday, April 13th 2017 @ 11:30 am – 12:30 pm
583 Park Avenue, Manhattan
On April 13, Governor Cuomo is holding a fundraiser in Manhattan — and we’ll be rallying outside calling on him to reject all fracking infrastructure!
Together, we’ll send a message to Cuomo and his donors that New Yorkers oppose fracking pipelines, compressor stations, storage facilities, and power plants.
We’ll be urging Cuomo to stop the Pilgrim pipelines, CPV power plant, Spectra pipeline, Seneca Lake storage facility, and other fossil fuel infrastructure. With Donald Trump intent on granting every wish of the fossil fuel industry, it’s more important than ever for Governor Cuomo to be a true leader on climate!
