Join the tide of resistance to oil and gas drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. Hundreds rallied for "No New Leases" in March on a historic day at New Orleans' Superdome, and hundreds more turned out at public hearings to demand that the Obama administration end, not expand, offshore drilling.
We know the administration heard us loud and clear -- the movement has garnered major national media attention, and the feds heightened security at the public hearings -- but they're still not responding to our many concerns.
As the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management proposal stands, the feds still plan to hold 10 lease sales from 2017-2022 that would offer up more than 70 million acres in the Gulf of Mexico to fossil fuel companies. This would condemn the Gulf to decades of dirty extraction when we need to be moving in the opposite direction.
Tell the feds that they're standing on the wrong side of history. It's time to end all new oil and gas leases and keep these fossil fuels in the ground.
