“Our growing national movement has persevered. We applaud Governor Cuomo for acknowledging the overwhelming science that speaks to the inherent dangers of fracking to public health and the environment. Fracking has no place in New York or anywhere, and the governor has smartly seized a golden opportunity to be a real national leader on health, environmental protection and a future free of polluting fossil fuels.”
Food & Water Watch is a founding member of New Yorkers Against Fracking, a statewide coalition of more than 250 local, state and national organizations dedicated to banning the practice of fracking in New York State. Food & Water Watch was the first national organization to call for an outright ban on fracking in the United States.
Food & Water Watch champions healthy food and clean water for all. We stand up to corporations that put profits before people, and advocate for a democracy that improves people’s lives and protects our environment.
