HUNDREDS FROM ACROSS NYS TO ATTEND HYDRO-FRACKING DAY OF ACTION

Public Travel to Albany to Tell Elected Leaders: Don’t Frack Up New York!

Albany, NY - Citizens Campaign for the Environment has organized bus loads of concerned citizens from across New York State to attend the 2012 Hydro-fracking Day of Action. Busses will leave from Central New York and Long Island and travel to Albany for the event. The hydro-fracking day of action is expected to draw over 500 residents from across New York State to voice concerns about drilling for natural gas throughout the state. The day will begin with a rally in the Legislative Office Building and will be followed by meetings with dozens of elected officials. Rally speakers include Assemblyman Sweeney, Englebright and CCE’s Executive Director, Adrienne Esposito.

Across the country, hydro-fracking has been documented to cause contamination of drinking water, air and land. Fracking continues to pose a threat to New York’s natural resources and endangers public health. This is a critical time for New York policy makers to stop hydro-fracking in the state, and attendees are calling on the Governor and the Legislature to listen to the concerns of the citizens.

DATE: Monday, January 23, 2012

TIME: Rally at 11:00 am in Legislative Office Building at “the well”

Syracuse Bus leaves at 7:30am from Price Chopper on Erie Boulevard

LI Vans leave at 6 am from L.I.E. exit 49 Park & Ride in Melville
