FREE SCREENING OF GASLAND DOCUMENTARY
The Río Grande International Study Center, in conjunction with the Laredo Public Library — invites the Laredo public to a free screening of Gasland – the Academy Award nominated documentary about hydraulic fracturing (fracking) for natural gas. Fracking has resulted in the groundwater contamination in numerous communities across the country.
The screening will be held at the Laredo Public Library’s Multi-purpose Room on Sunday, April 17, at 2:30 p.m. Natural gas exploration has long been an active industry in Webb and Zapata counties. The recent gas boom with the Eagle Ford Shale play in neighboring Dimmit County (Crystal City and Carrizo Springs) to the northwest behooves the public to become aware of this potentially dangerous method of drilling for natural gas.
For further information, please call RGISC at 721-5392.
