Withdraw Revised Draft SGEIS Coalition Letter Has Nearly 3,000 Signatories/URGENT ALERT: Thursday DEC Hearing in Binghamton


I am pleased to let you know that the Withdraw the Revised Draft SGEIS coalition letter now has nearly 3,000 signatories. Thank you so much for supporting this main line of defense against horizontal hydrofracturing in New York. Beat the bushes. Get more signatories. See:

I write to alert you that Thursday's RD SGEIS hearing in Binghamton will be a critically important demonstration of political strength. I IMPLORE EACH AND EVERY CONCERNED CITIZEN, ELECTED OFFICIAL AND GROUP TO SHOW UP. WE NEED TO DWARF THE OPPOSITION. GET THERE FOR A BIG NOON RALLY.

The importance of your presence cannot be overstated. Pro-frackers will be at the hearing in force. Ithacans, Binghamtonians and all Central New Yorkers, I beg you to make a strong political showing. Bring everyone you know as well as all your signs and banners.

The hearing starts at 1:00 PM. This is your chance to spell out concerns regarding the woefully inadequate and incomplete RD SGEIS. I will post my testimony for your review before Thursday.

Please note that there could be fierce competition for a limited number of slots to testify. The earlier you show up to get in line, the better.

Where: The Forum Theater, 236 Washington Street, Binghamton, NY

When: Gather at 11:30 AM FOR THE NOON RALLY, IF NOT EARLIER, Thursday, November 17th

There will be second hearing session at 6:00 PM. There also will be a second gathering of activists at 5:00 PM.
