January 2015 Update

Due to pressure from the Western Environmental Law Center, Chaco Alliance, San Juan Citizens Alliance, and Wild Earth Guardians,  the BLM has deferred more than 2,800 acres scheduled for leasing in January 2015. The is good news, at least for now. But the Saddle Butte Pinion pipeline project continues to move forward. The comment period has been extended to January 30th, and additional public meetings have been scheduled. Please make your voices heard in opposition to this 130 mile long pipeline which will open even more of NW New Mexico to fracking from oil and gas development, and put at risk the extensive Chacoan landscape, including great houses, ancient roads, and sacred sites.

Farmington, January 13, 5-7 pm at Farmington Civic Center
Lybrook, January 14, 5-7 pm at Lybrook Elementary School
Santa Fe, January 15, 5-7 pm at BLM State Office – 301 Dinosaur Trail
