Ban Fracking Waste in Bridgeport and Eat Vegan Food!

  • Bloodroot Vegetarian Restaurant 85 Ferris St Bridgeport, Connecticut 06605 (map)

THE PLAN: We'll meet at 2pm this Sat at Bloodroot Vegan Restaurant in Bridgeport to distribute petitions and backround information. Then we'll head out in the area surrounding the resturant (cute little residental houses) to collect signatures. We'll meet back at Bloodroot at 6pm to have dinner and relax together. 

ABOUT: Join us in Bridgeport for a day of action to collect signatures to ban the storage of toxic, radioactive fracking waste, though ordinance. Currently the state of CT has a moratorium on housing fracking waste. However, as of July 1st that moratorium expires and Bridgeport is slated as one of three cities in CT to store the waste. This would be devastating to the people of Bridgeport and also the cities south of Bridgeport who use Bridgeport’s water treatment facility for fresh water. Every location that stores fracking waste has experienced leaks and contamination. We cannot take this type of risk in our back yard.
