Anti-energy groups invade Colorado, mob against production
DENVER – Today, out-of-state anti-energy special interest groups invaded Colorado, bringing “Keep it in the Ground” protests. Groups present included 350.org, the Center for Biological Diversity, Greenpeace, Food & Water Watch and the Rainforest Action Network.
According to Energy In Depth, the groups “descended on a Bureau of Land Management (BLM) office in Lakewood, Colo. to protest a lease auction of 90,000 acres for oil and gas development in central and eastern Colorado.”
Additionally, the anti-energy mob blocked the entrance to the office’s parking lot despite being asked to move by BLM staff and law enforcement agencies.
Advancing Colorado Executive Director Jonathan Lockwood released the following:
“Coloradans have no interest in extremist groups from out-of-state coming here and rioting against energy production that keeps our lights on, and powers our economy. These groups are callous, extreme and are making life harder for Americans, especially our most vulnerable communities. The fact they are preying on underserved communities exposes them for their true colors. Thankfully we have groups like Energy In Depth standing up to radical groups like the ones invading Colorado today.”
