Resisting Fracking and Tar Sands Pipeline in Michigan meeting this Saturday

November 26, 2012

The local group, Mutual Aid GR is hosting a meeting to discuss next steps in the local efforts to stop horizontal hydraulic fracking in West Michigan, which is one the rise, based on recent oil & mineral rights leasing data.

According to the Facebook event page, Mutual Aid GR states:

By now we know the devastating impact fracking has on water, air, health, and communities. We need to act fast to keep our state from becoming a clear-cut, polluted wasteland at the hands of the fracking industry.

In addition to fracking, we are also planning action around the tar sands pipeline that will soon cut through the state from two locations. Here is an article, including a map, with more details:

Joining us at this meeting will be members of Kent County Water Conservation. We will be discussing how to fight fracking in Kent County and across the state. In addition to this, we will discuss organizing actions around the proposed tar sands pipeline, setting up a teach-in for resisting fossil fuels, creating more of our own material, and other related topics.
