The mighty Susquehanna River
is in grave danger

We NEED a miracle.

Will you help make one happen?

We made a miracle before!

On December 15th, the SRBC met to approve
20 new permits to withdraw massive amounts of water
from this sacred river, which gives us all life.

This water is used for Hydrofracking in Pennsylvania,
which is poisoning our people,
and the fish, deer, cows, and birds.

Many beautiful people came with compassionate hearts
and made a tremendous disruption.

The vote was delayed.
People prayed for a miracle: and one was granted!

NOW...

In just 3 days on Thursday March 15th
the Susquehanna River Basin Commission
will meet again, with an agenda to pass
60 new permits to withdraw
50 Million Gallons per day
.
Source: http://srbc.net/about/meetings/MeetingNotices/_CMtgAnnouncement03-15-12.pdf

To put this in perspective, the typical water trucks you
see hauling water carries 4,000 gal.

The sum of all these permits equals
over 12,000 additional truck trips per day.

This water is permanently removed from the hydrological cycle.

There have been NO CUMULATIVE IMPACT studies done.
There is no science which proves this is safe.

Reasonable science says that hyfrofracking
might be a form of collective suicide, a possible
DOOMSDAY SCENARIO.

This is not a joke.

We, quite literally, may be causing

a mass extinction of life with the river basin.

So, what is it worth for you
to help save a mass extinction of life,
right here?

Will you help us protect life for Seven Generations?
And what are you willing to sacrifice?

Is it worth taking a day off of work and coming to Harrisburg
this Thursday March 15th?

This is IT folks. YOU and me,
WE, TOGETHER
can make a BIG DIFFERENCE!
