Tell Gov Hickenlooper not to sue Longmont for protecting its citizens!‏

(from Micah Parkin - 350 Colorado

Recently, the city of Longmont passed some commonsense regulations to protect its citizens from rapidly expanding natural gas fracking in Colorado.
Fracking is a threat to our communities and our climate—but Governor Hickenlooper is taking the unprecedented step of suing the city of Longmont, claiming that local governments shouldn't be allowed to regulate or ban the dangerous practice.
Tell Governor Hickenlooper: Let Longmont ban fracking!
Then please join us at the following events to stand up for Longmont and local communities throughout the state:
Deliver declaration against fracking and invitation to Governor Hickenlooper
WHEN: Wednesday, Septemer 19, 11:00 AM
WHERE: Governor Hickenlooper’s office, 200 East Colfax Avenue, Denver, CO
Activists will deliver the “Declaration of Solidarity Against Fracking” signed by more than 4,000 Coloradans, along with an invitation for the Governor to join the “Rally ‘Round Longmont” on Sept 22. We're inviting Hickenlooper to explain why he is suing the citizens of Longmont  and allowing the gas industry to frack next to their homes and schools.
Rally ‘Round Longmont
WHEN: Saturday, September 22, from 11:00 AM-1:00 PM
WHERE: Location: Rogers Grove, 220 Hover Road, Longmont, CO
Hundreds of Longmont residents and concerned Coloradans will gather and speak out for local control and against fracking. We'll have music, family activities, and solidarity. No word yet on whether Governor Hickenlooper will attend!
It's up to us to stand up for our communities. Don't let the Governor stand in our way, and don't let him get away with suing the city of Longmont.
