On Thursday, April 19th, 3 activists will appear in the Mahoning County Court for shutting down a lease signing event orchestrated by Eco-Criminal British Petroleum Corporation. This comes the day before the 2 year anniversary of their Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, which killed 11 workers and spilled 67 million barrels of oil into the Ocean. Now BP intends to frack 84,000 acres in Ohio if we don’t stop them. Ohio Fracktion is working to stop them and empower Ohioans. We need your support.
Annie Lukins, Jonathan Sidney, and Jeremy Bingham face between 60 days and 7 months in jail for disrupting the meeting and throwing a wrench into BP’s plans to acquire 20% of Trumbull County. Some residents are so worried about BP’s planned invasion that they have chosen to place their houses up for sale.
We are calling on anyone who believes that BP is the real criminal to please DONATE to the legal defense fund for these activists.
We need to raise $1,000 in the next 48 hours to help cover their attorney costs so that we can get back to our work of helping communities organize to protect themselves from the devastating impacts of hydraulic fracturing and eco-criminals like BP. Donate here.
Thank you so much for your support and please check in during the coming days to see how you can help support Annie, Jonathan, and Jeremy and the work they are doing for Ohio’s safe drinking water. You can also reach us via email or phone.
