The event creator says
RALLY & PRESS CONFERENCE
The Federal Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (Dept of Interior) is trying to auction off leases for literally TWO-THIRDS of the entire Gulf of Mexico for oil and gas operations. Millions and millions of mineral acres. They are doing it now, and they are making plans to do it over the next 5 years.

BOEM has scheduled a public meeting about their 2017-2022 plans on the six year anniversary of the BP Deepwater Horizon explosion, in Houston.

Join us for a RALLY and PRESS CONFERENCE right before the PUBLIC MEETING -- at 2:30 PM, Wednesday, April 20th -- or join us in talking with BOEM at the Hyatt Regency Houston (1200 Louisiana Street) about what they are doing and how they are analyzing potential environmental risks and impacts, during their 3:00 PM - 7:00 PM open public meeting (come at any time you can make it)

The METRO rail is a very close walk from the Hyatt. Folks coming from the South might want to park at Fannin St station and take the train into downtown.

If you need a reminder for how bad the Deepwater Horizon disaster and cover up was for the common Gulf Coast resident,

We can't let the fossil fuel industry own the entire continental shelf in the Gulf of Mexico and continue to treat it like a complete industrial sacrifice zone. They already operate 3,400 offshore rigs in the Gulf --- those rigs and the people on them must stay safe. We're talking about an industry that cuts corners with human lives -- an industry that currently is in financial crisis mode and owes workers $40 million in backwages: http://www.usnews.com/news/articles/2016-04-04/oil-and-gas-companies-stiff-29-000-workers-out-of-40-million

Clearly these companies have better things to be spending their money on right now.

Tell the U.S. Department of the Interior Bureau of Ocean Energy Management Bureau of Land Management to offer #nonewleases & #KeepItInTheGround for a #justtransition to #climatejustice and a #neweconomy. JOIN US on the 20th!! INVITE YOUR FRIENDS
