The Denton Drilling Awareness Group and Frack Free Denton are presenting the Denton premier of Josh Fox’s Gasland 2. This documentary is the sequel to Gasland 1, and examines the public health and safety issues of natural gas well drilling and fracking. It also exposes the ways in which corporate money from the shale boom is undermining democracy. The showing is Thursday, April 3, 7:30 PM ,at Dan’s Silverleaf, 103 Industrial Street. Admission is free and open to the public.”
1. Saturday February 1st
The event will start at 1 p.m. at Natural Grocers (in their meeting room)
110 W. University Drive.
*This is an informational event that will cover much of the same material covered at the Denia meeting. Lots of folks could not make it, so we are doing it again. We will also provide information there about some next steps.
2. Tuesday February 4th
City Council meeting at 6:30 p.m. in Council Chambers
215 E. McKinney St. (next to the post office).
Several people from the Vintage/S. Bonnie area are going to give citizens' reports (4 minutes each) at the start of this meeting. They will be discussing their concerns and frustrations and they will ask City Council to implement a moratorium on drilling and fracking until the ordinance can be repaired. It would be great if we could have a big turnout to support them. Once we see the agenda, there may be a chance for others to speak to this issue...and I have heard some folks may be planning an event of some sort just prior to the meeting. I will post again about those aspects once I get more info.
Come and Speak!!!

trucks to haul frack water to the southern gas well pad site in those neighborhoods. Speak up and tell the City to deny this permit. You can make a difference!
