Three major milestones ~ Food & Water Watch

Food & Water Watch

 Food & Water Watch organizing is working, and we’re beating Big Oil and Gas.

Just last week we had three big victories in California, Pennsylvania and New Mexico:

California: Mayor Garcetti in Los Angeles made an announcement to stop the re-building of three L.A. gas-fired power plants in a push to move the city closer to 100% renewable energy.¹
Pennsylvania: Governor Tom Wolf announced that his administration will stop issuing construction permits for Energy Transfer pipelines, including the dangerous Mariner East pipeline project.²
• New Mexico: After Food & Water Watch delivered over 27,000 signatures in opposition, the Bureau of Land Management called for a delay on the sale of 1,500 acres of land near Chaco Canyon for oil and gas development.³

This is because of the pressure we’ve been putting on Garcetti, Wolf and other elected officials — the petitions, the calls and the demonstrations!

Onward together,

Wenonah Hauter
Executive Director
