BP Station
813 N. Broad St. (Broad & Parrish)
Philadelphia

Please wear all black!

We will be doing Street theater to expose and end corporate control over politics. PA Senators Bob Casey and Pat Toomey each receive huge contributions from oil and gas companies. Casey was recently one of only seven senators out of 100 who voted to limit EPA regulations of greenhouse gasses on corporate polluters. The partnership between polluters and politicians enabled the disastrous BP oil spill and is currently threatening PA’s drinking water as natural gas drilling and fracking in the Marcellus Shale ravage our environment and poison our communities. It’s time to make PA’s politicians Protect People Not Polluters!

Energy Action Coalition and Rising Tide are organizing this event following Powershift as part of the National Day of Action Against Extraction. Media footage will be shared with the Senators’ offices sending a clear message to protect people not polluters.
