Industry Silica Frac Sand Conference in Minneapolis

Protest

SILICA FRAC SAND MINING

 

Tuesday, September 24 from 5-7 PM

Radisson Hotel

35 S. 7th St., Minneapolis

 

On September 24 and 25 Minneapolis will be hosting the inaugural Frac Sands Conference. Attendees include representatives from Halliburton, US Silica Company, Hi-Crush Partners, Preferred Sands, Canadian Silica Industries, Superior Silica Sands, Victory Silica and many more corporations, companies, and investors interested in massive profits from the frac sand mining industry.
More information about the conference can be found here: http://www.metalbulletin.com/EventDetails/0/5896/Event.html?LS=IndMin

People passionate about preserving the beauty and health of the Driftless Region must come together and show the industry that we oppose all frac sand mining in this delicate and necessary ecosystem, we reject the myth that fracking is a necessary bridge to the future of American energy, and we hold that these sacred bluffs can not be dug up and shipped elsewhere.
In response, activists in Minnesota have planned a rally and demonstration to take place at the first day of the conference.
