We will not accept Donald Trump's bigotry, homophobia, sexism, racism, xenophobia, authoritarianism, ignorance and stupidity. Already our democratic republic has been replaced by oligarchy. What next, outright fascism? As our articles will show, Trump is following the path of Adolf Hitler as a passive, confused media grovels for access.
One lawsuit was filed, unsurprisingly, by an oil and gas industry group. But the second lawsuit comes from the Texas General Land Office, a government body tasked with managing land in the public interest.
One thing is for certain: fracking is not in the public interest, andthe citizens of Denton have made that clear. In Denton, flares burn off benzene––a known carcinogen––and other gases near playgrounds. Wells have exploded, spewing toxic fracking chemicals into neighborhoods. Ozone levels exceed standards for safety.
The incoming Texas Land Commissioner is none other than George P. Bush, nephew of former president George W. Bush. The Bush family is invested in the fracking industry, so George P. Bush has every reason to follow through with the lawsuit against Denton when he takes office.
That’s why we need to stand with Denton and make our voices heard. Join us in calling on the Texas General Land Office to stop interfering with the democratic process and drop its lawsuit against Denton!
PETITION TO THE TEXAS LAND COMMISSIONER: Withdraw the lawsuit challenging Denton’s fracking ban.
