In the spirit of movements across the country against corporate power, local organizers, activists, and occupiers are calling for an occupation of the Developing Unconventional Gas conference in Pittsburgh.
Tuesday, November 15
5:15pm – March on the conference, meet at Occupy Pittsburgh/Mellon Green, 6th and Grant downtown
6:00pm – People’s Reception and Occupation begins, David Lawrence Convention Center
On November 15th, Halliburton is hosting a reception for the rest of the oil and gas industry to kick off the Developing Unconventional Gas conference. At 5:15pm, we will march from Occupy Pittsburgh to the David Lawrence Convention Center and kick off our occupation of the conference with a people’s reception for economic and environmental justice.
The gas industry is poisoning our air and water and hijacking our so-called democracy. They say they are bringing economic opportunity but all we see is exploitation. Stand with us to resist corporate power – join the people’s reception or organize your own creative action to disrupt the conference!
** Sign-making and flash mob practice!
