YUCCA YOUTH BLOCK TRAFFIC & ENTRANCE TO

THE OIL & GAS ASSOCIATI
ON’S ANNUAL MEETING

Over fifty youth from around the state took the day off of school today to protest the annual New Mexico Oil and Gas Association (NMOGA) gathering. Organized by YUCCA, young Indigenous, POC, and allied youth and adults marched and rallied during the opening session of the annual NMOGA Meeting to demand an end to oil and gas extraction and exploitation that puts fossil fuel profits over the health, safety, and futures of New Mexicans. Speakers from YUCCA, Pueblo Action Alliance, and K’owa Collective were joined by Indigenous Water Protectors who traveled from Diné Nation for the action. 

 

The protesters blocked traffic and blocked the entrance of the hotel - calling for corporate accountability for the ways in which oil and gas has burned New Mexico - literally and figuratively. 

NO FALSE SOLUTIONS!
We joined allied organizations at the NM Legislative Finance Committee in Prewitt and Gallup, NM to stand up against false solutions like blue hydrogen. During the 2022 Legislative Session, New Mexicans and our Reps said NO to fracked gas hydrogen in New Mexico and NO to public investment. Yet, Reps like Patty Lundstrom are continuing to push hydrogen down on NM and Indigenous communities. Now the Legislature is using interim committee hearings as a venue for hydrogen hype without a simultaneous presentation of scientific evidence. Hydrogen produced from “natural” methane gas is not a “clean” energy, nor is it renewable. We spoke against this greenwashed false solution and the need to invest in renewables in the state. We must stay vigilant given the Governor's intent to continue to pursue federal $ for a multi state hydrogen hub and state "leadership" who are bitter that their initial proposals were voted down.
