Yolo MoveOn invites all to attend the Don’t Frack California rally in Sacramento on Saturday, March 15, from noon to 2:30 p.m. on the lawn of the state Capitol.
Fracking — hydraulic fracturing — requires the use of vast amounts of water mixed with toxic chemicals to break up shale and release oil. This process exacerbates climate change by releasing methane gas, and it depletes water resources in a time of severe drought.
“Join your voice with the thousands of others coming from all over California to stand strong on this issue, which is supported by MoveOn, 350.org, Food and Water Watch, Sierra Club, Credo and many other concerned organizations,” a news release said.
Participants will car-pool from Davis. They’ll meet at 11:15 a.m. in the parking lot of the Grocery Outlet/Dollar Store, 1800 E. Eighth St. Contact Frances at 530-848-2696 or Frances_brk@yahoo.com to offer to drive or reserve a ride.
