The People vs Shell: Frack off

Extracts from an article by Staci Matlock published on 11 March 2014 by The New Mexican under the headline: “Land grant group joins Mora fight against oil drilling”

Screen Shot 2014-03-12 at 08.50.16The Mora Land Grant association has come down on the side of the Mora County Commission in a fight against the Royal Dutch Shell oil company and private landowners over oil and gas drilling. “This case is about who controls the water, the land, and the natural environment in Mora County — the residents of the county who have passed the ordinance to protect their rights and the rights of nature or an out-of-state corporation,” Jeffrey Haas, a Santa Fe attorney representing the land grant association, said in a statement. Jacobo Pacheco, a Mora County resident and member of the land grant, also is intervening in the lawsuit. He said in the history of the U.S. — whether it was voting rights, civil rights or now the rights of people over corporations — “there is a time to stand up for what is right.”
