Concerned Citizens Protest Fracking Workshop in Culver City?
By Sentinel Staff Report
Published June 11, 2012

The controversial oil and gas drilling practice called hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is more intensive and poses a greater risk to groundwater, air quality, climate change and public health than conventional drilling. The State of California does not require companies to disclose if and where they are fracking, but industry documents reveal that fracking has taken place in the counties of Sacramento, Sutter, Yolo, Solano, Kern, Ventura, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, and Monterey.

While some have called for better disclosure of fracking chemicals and property owner notification, these steps will not adequately protect public health, safety and the environment. Until fracking can be proven safe, the only viable solution is a ban.

What: More than 100 concerned citizens from across the Los Angeles area are planning a protest at Culver City Hall immediately before the California Department of Conservation Division of Oil, Gas, and Geothermal Resources (DOGGR) workshop to gather information aimed at regulating the practice of fracking. Protestors stand firm that no amount of regulation will adequately protect public health and California’s precious natural resources and that an outright ban needed.

Who: Elected officials and residents affected by fracking in Culver City, Baldwin Hills and Carson will speak along with a representative from the nonprofit consumer advocacy group Food & Water Watch.

When/Where:  Tuesday, June 12, 5:30 p.m. – 6:30pm
