It's back to Austin for the first frackquake hearing

Come to the state capitol on May 12 at 1pm 

Earthquakes across the country have been directly tied to fracking and fracking wastewater injection. And the frackquakes are happening right here in Texas.

In January, we took a bus load of concerned citizens from the Azle area to Austin to demand action. We listed our demands and got the attention of national media. A committee was formed to address our concerns.

 Now, the Subcommittee on Seismic Activity is having its first hearing.

The committee has decided to hear invited testimony only, but it is important for concerned citizens to be present and make their presence felt. Demonstrating high levels of interest on this topic is the only way to keep things moving politically and is why so many in the media and government paid attention last time.

Texas State Capitol Building
1100 Congress Ave
 Room E2 O36 Austin, TX

The meeting starts at 1pm.

Hope you can make it,
Sharon Wilson, Earthworks Texas Organizer
