Rally! No fracking In Greater Chaco Canyon Landscape (Dec 14 Bernalillo NM)

  • Sandoval County Government 1500 Idalia Road Bernalillo, NM, 87004 United States (map)

CALL TO ACTION! #ProtectChacoCanyon #StandWithBearsEars#ProtectTheSacred

-In wake of the reduction of #BearsEars and the staircase- Escalente monuments, it is apparent that our current administration will not respect Tribal sovereignty and consent. Attacks on sacred spaces in the Southwest are not new, Native lands have long been targeted by extractivist companies for the gas and oil deposits they sit on. 

In the greater Chaco region, Dine families are impacted heavily by fracking. Extraction projects result in an influx of violence against Women due to the presence of man camps, and environmental hazards including poor air and water quality remain long term heath risks. 

The numerous sacred sites among the greater Chaco landscape have significance to many tribes throughout the Southwest, Pueblo people consider the Chaco landscape holy ancestral territory. 

It is urgent that we continue to mobilize to protect the sacred! 

Join The Red Nation, Pueblo Action Alliance, and Dine/ Pueblo Solidarity to demand a moratorium on Fracking in the greater Chaco landscape.

- Demand that the Sandoval county Stoddard ordinance be tabled pending environmental impact statements and Tribal consent.

- Demand the recognition of Tribal sovereignty and ancestral territory!
