Philadelphia City Council Hearing: Sept 28th
Tuesday, September 28th 10:00 AM*
* Gather at 9:30 AM
City Hall, Philadelphia, PA
Description: City Council is opening the door to residents of Philadelphia and surrounding counties for its first public hearing on unconventional gas drilling (fracking) in our watershed. The city should stand up and demand protection for the drinking water of millions of residents. This is our chance to speak out on behalf of public health, to protect our communities and the rivers and streams on which we depend – to prevent contamination before it begins. The Marcellus Shale Coalition and other industry representatives will be there, making their voices heard. Make sure City Council and the press hear your voice too. Let’s fill the room! Protecting Our Waters is working on this with support from all our allies.
Enter on the north-east corner of City Hall and please arrive at 9:30. To confirm your attendance and for more information, call Iris at 215-840-6489 or contact Cecily of Protecting Our Waters at firstname.lastname@example.org
