Dear Fellow Californians Against Fracking,

Please help us spread the word about this Action on Sept 21 to protest a massive oil field planned near the Pinnacles:
"Draw the Line: Don't Frack the Pinnacles"
East Entrance to Pinnacles National Park (take Airline Hwy, route 25)
Saturday Sept. 21, 2013
9:30am - 10am (Assemble at Pinnacles Campground parking lot)
10 am (March begins)
10:30 am (Rally at lawn area near Visitor's Center)
$5 per vehicle entrance fee
Bring creative signs, sunflowers, musical instruments
Bring water and picnic lunch

Background info: The grassroots group, San Benito Rising, plans to host a peaceful march and rally at the Pinnacles. (This event is co-sponsored by the Center for Biological Diversity.) Our goal is to raise public awareness about oil drilling near the Pinnacles. The San Benito county board of supervisors recently granted Citadel Exploration a permit for 15 exploratory wells. In the future, Citadel plans to drill many more wells in a 688 acre area, just 6 miles south of Pinnacles National Park. Citadel's "cyclic steam injection" wells use huge quantities of scarce water, could contaminate groundwater, generate toxic wastewater, and create an industrial site that disrupts wildlife. The Center for Biological Diversity has filed a lawsuit against San Benito county because no EIR was done before approval of the Citadel project. San Benito Rising is collaborating with on this national day of action (Sept 21) to "draw the line to protect our communities from climate change", and demand public policy that supports green, renewable energy (solar, wind, etc). We are inviting the media to cover this event. The National Park Service has granted San Benito Rising a 1st amendment permit for this rally.

Thanks for spreading the word!
