Protest! No fracking in the Delaware River Basin

  • Washington Crossing Historic Park 1112 River Rd Washington Crossing, Pennsylvania 18977 (map)

16 million Americans get their drinking water directly from the Delaware River Basin -- including half of New Jersey.

For five years this pristine source of drinking water has been protected by a moratorium on an environmentally devastating process known as fracking.

Now, with the election of Donald Trump, fracking is again a possibility in the Delaware River Basin. We must resist. We must fight back.

We are heeding the call for a silent protest this Wednesday led by the Delaware Riverkeeper Network, Damascus Citizens for Sustainability, and acclaimed filmmaker Josh Fox, whose award-winning documentary Gaslands helped launch a global anti-fracking movement.

Can we count on you to attend and be a water protector?

The DRBC regulates the Delaware River Basin and is comprised of the governors from New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Delaware.

John Wisniewski believes we face a Climate Emergency and as governor will be a strong voice against fracking on the DRBC. He will also sign into law the prohibition of processing fracked water waste in New Jersey’s sewage treatment facilities. But we have to stop the DRBC now!

We will be at Washington Crossing on Wednesday… Can we count on you to join us as water protectors?

In solidarity,

Linh Nguyen
Political Director

PS -- WEAR BLUE to show unity and bring personal-size signs (no sticks or poles) that call for a fracking/drilling ban in the Delaware River Basin.
