Colorado has a long and checkered history with the fossil fuel industry, as does much of the West.

This May, we’re breaking free. We’re breaking free from an industry that’s driving the climate crisis and throwing our seasons out of whack. We’re breaking free from an industry that poisons our air and water. We’re breaking free from an industry that doesn’t respect our right to keep dangerous industrial processes away from homes and schools. We’re breaking free — and mobilizing to keep massive amounts of fossil fuels underground.

Pawnee GrasslandsThis country is at a crossroads: we can either continue auctioning off public lands for fracking, or we can decide to keep over half of fossil fuels in the US underground forever. Colorado is also at a crossroads, with the fossil fuel industry vying to keep communities from protecting themselves with fracking bans and moratoria.

On May 12th, the Bureau of Land Management intends to hold a fossil fuel auction — and the movement intends to be there to tell them to keep it in the ground! We’ll be mobilizing first at the BLM auction and then a few days later in a community working to defend itself from fracking near Denver.neighborhood fracking
