Global Frack-down in Cortland



On Saturday, October 19, thousands of fracktivists around the world will come together for the Global Frackdown 2 to call for a ban on fracking.

Here in Cortland, we will participate in a bike and rally against Hydrofracking. We will bike from the Lusk Field House, SUNY Cortland, at 8am to the Cortland City/County Candidate Forum at 9 Groton Ave. 


Let’s show our future legislators that we want our water to stay FRACK-FREE!


What: A Clean Water Cycle: Bike and Rally Against Hydrofracking

Where: Back of Lusk Field House (Community Bike Shop) SUNY Cortland to Elk’s Lodge, 9 Groton Ave.

When: Saturday October 19, 8am to 10:30am.

Sign up to RSVP a bicycle by contacting Jessie at or (607) 753-4815.
The oil and gas industry will stop at nothing to keep the public in the dark about the ugly truths of fracking. We’ve seen families forced to sign gag orders in exchange for clean drinking water, the EPA abandoning investigations of fracking contamination sites in the face of industry pressure, and our elected officials putting corporate profits over the rights of their constituents.
Fight back. Join the Global Frackdown 2 on Saturday, October 19.

More Event Background

Last year the Global Frackdown was a huge success, with actions from France to South Africa, Argentina to Australia, and all across the United States. In fact, it was so successful that an industry white paper cited the Frackdown as an example of our increasingly powerful movement to ban fracking.¹ This year will be bigger, louder and more powerful. 


Despite what we’re up against, grassroots opposition to fracking is growing. Across the globe, the list of victories keeps growing. From the hundreds camping out in protest in Balcolme, England; to bans in France and Bulgaria; moratoria in the Czech Republic and the Netherlands; and communities in the U.S., Argentina, Canada and more passing municipal resolutions — we’re turning the tide. In order to keep winning, we need to show our elected officials around the globe that they work for us, not the oil and gas industry. Join us on October 19th and help make sure policymakers hear the message loud and clear.
