Trenton War Memorial
Monday November 21 2011
Rally and March 11:00 am- 3:00 pm
In a stunning victory for the public and for the Delaware River Watershed, the Delaware River Basin Commission cancelled the Nov. 21 meeting where they were planning to vote on opening the Delaware River Watershed to gas drilling and fracking. Governor Markell of Delaware and Governor Cuomo of New York have both announced they will vote no. We must redouble our efforts so that at least 3 voting members are committed to protecting our water supplies and communities by preventing the pollution that gas drilling and fracking causes. The cancellation of this meeting is a huge victory but it is not the end of our struggle to keep drilling and fracking out of the Delaware River Watershed. Governor Chris Christie and President Obama (represented by the Army Corps of Engineers) - voting members of the DRBC - need to hear from us “Don’t Drill the Delaware!” So, please come to Trenton Monday!
