Plugging-in to the Fight Against Fracking in Boulder County

Join us at this meeting where attendees will connect with local Boulder County Protector chapters (Boulder, Lafayette/Louisville, and Longmont/Lyons) to support regular local meetings and actions to keep fracking from returning to Boulder County.

Agenda

· -Welcome and introduction to the chapter leaders for Boulder County Protectors

· -Summary of where we are now in the return of fracking to Boulder County

· -Boulder County Climate Bill of Rights and Protections: What is it and how do we increase the pressure on our commissioners

· -Running movement candidates: Taking our power as a grassroots movement through elected positions

· -Plugging in and connecting to other fighters where you live: Breakout sessions to begin connecting and building the movement in your neighborhood and town.

Opportunities for Question and Answer will follow each of these sections.


We will be organzing on the following basis:

1. We have spoken clearly on the issue of oil and gas development and it is resolved that we do not want drilling in Boulder County under any circumstances. It is a violation of the land, the health of our families, and the well being of our communities and climate.

2. Any attempt to forcefully move fracking into Boulder County is a violation of our fundamental rights.

3. The laws that seek to remove us from protecting the land, the local environment, the climate, and our right to self govern are in every way immoral and illegitimate.

4. We have the right and obligation to protect the environment, our families, and our communities.

5. All government officials and staff are being asked to side with the people in every capacity, refuse to administer the destruction of the land and its climate, and enforce the will of the community to protect ourselves from any intrusive industry that fails to recognize these fundamental rights.

6. In the event that elected leadership fails to join with the people and the environment, we will protect Boulder County ourselves.
