Oct. 18: No New Leases! Sandoval County Commissioners Action


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – The Red Nation and Pueblo Action Alliance calls on all dispossessed, Indigenous, and oppressed people to rally for the call to end the lease sales happening right now in New Mexico. New Mexico Sandoval County Commissioners and the Bureau of Land Management are framing these sales as a benefit to our communities but we know this a continuation of settler colonial violence. Sandoval County has been trying to push an ordinance that establishes energy zones (dividing them into two regions NW and SW) that don’t provide protection for the community and ignores gas and oil impacts to residents who live in the checkboarded area especially in NW Sandoval County. This ordinance is racist being that the Southwest energy zone is less populated thus more available to frack. There are no emergency plans in the ordinance.   These ordinances and sales simply draw us and our land closer to death!

Join The Red Nation, Pueblo Action Alliance, and community in demanding an end to leasing any more stolen lands We will meet at 4:00PM outside the office building and rally until the meeting begins at 6:00PM. We will show the corporations and companies we will not tolerate this injustice.

WHAT: Protest and Rally to stop the oil and gas leasing on Native lands.
WHO: The Red Nation, Pueblo Action Alliance, community members and allies.
WHEN: Thursday, October 18th 2018 at 4:00PM.
WHERE: Sandoval County Office, 1500 Idalia Road, Building D, Bernalillo, NM 87004
