Action in Solidarity with Bakersfield Communities Dealing with Dozens of Wells Leaking Explosive Methane
On Wednesday July 13th, we will gather at the Natural Resources Agency HQ building to demand the regulators do their jobs, get out of their desks and go inspect these wells for the public's safety, and calling on Gov Newsom and Wade Crowfoot to implement a safety buffer of 3,200 feet between wells and homes, schools, hospitals and other sensitive uses.
What: Demand safety from Oil and Gas wells
Where: Gather at FDR Park - (1615 9th St.) and then we will march to CalGEM offices (715 P St.)
When: Wednesday July 13th, at 12:00 (with a short march to CalGEM offices at 12:30)
Who: You! And please bring your friends, community, and networks.
Why: Because CalGEM is failing to do their job and not regulating the fossil fuel industry.
