Activists to Gather at Office of Senator Kevin de León Tuesday at Noon
LOS ANGELES - Local activists will rally Tuesday at noon to urge State Senator Kevin de León to support a bill that would enact a moratorium on fracking across the state.
The Appropriations Committee, which is chaired by Senator de León, will decide whether the bill, SB 1132, ultimately goes to the floor for a vote or dies. The rally is being supported by CREDO, Sierra Club California, Center for Biological Diversity and a host of other groups.
To date, CREDO activists have submitted more than 21,000 letters and reported making nearly 1,000 phone calls to the California State Senate in support of the moratorium bill. At the rally, activists will deliver more than 16,000 petition signatures collected by CREDO urging Senator de León to support SB 1132.

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
