On Monday, May 2nd, 2011 New York stands together in Albany to call for a permanent ban on hydraulic fracturing in our state. All eyes are on New York and its our responsibility to not only defend our state but to set a precedent to stop this practice across the nation.

Let's mobilize our communities, unite a diverse network, an
d bring out the big numbers to show the power behind our demand. We know that nothing short of a ban on hydraulic fracturing for oil or gas will protect our water, our air, our land, our communities, our farms and economy, and our health—and we will not accept anything less than a full and permanent ban. New York's future is in our hands! Let's work together to make New York State the first state in the country to WIN in this battle.
