River to River invites you — and Protecting Our Waters supports their call — to join your neighbors, friends, and community members on Saturday April 23 for the River to River march.
Philadelphia’s rivers have vastly improved, thanks to hard work by thousands of people, for decades, in official and unofficial roles — from the Philadelphia Water Department to the Delaware Riverkeeper Network, from Clean Water Action to newer groups like Protecting Our Waters and the newest of all, River to River. All those gains are threatened by unregulated, exempted, toxic radioactive waste from hydrofracking! Let’s reclaim our connection to our city’s rivers. And let’s not let ourselves be fragmented either: just because we’re defending water doesn’t mean we don’t care about air! The beautiful state of Wyoming now has smog worse than Los Angeles due to horizontal hydrofracking. We won’t let that happen here. We won’t let Gov. Corbett and his gasocracy ruin the health of humans and ecosystems by spewing toxic waste into air, water and earth.
Join River to River, Protecting Our Waters, and our allies as we stand up against fracking in the Delaware River Basin and statewide, to protect our own and our neighbors’ health, and to celebrate our relationship to the rivers that flow through Philadelphia.
WHAT? River to River March: From the Schuylkill to the Delaware
WHEN? Saturday, April 23 · 12:00pm – 4:00pm
WHERE? The March will start from the Rotunda in Philadelphia, at 40th and Walnut (just west of the southwest corner), at noon. Converge at Love Park at 2pm for speakers and music, and then at 3:30pm marching up 3rd to Penn Treaty Park on the Delaware River to join Shad Fest.
Bring yourselves, your friends, your banners, your enthusiasm, and let’s take it to the streets.
