LONGMONT, Colo. — Just west of I-25, along Highway 119, about 50 protestors lined up outside Encana Oil and Gas in Longmont.
Organizers say it was a surprise protest by concerned citizens and farmers about water. The protest lasted about two hours.
Encana is a leading North American energy producer that uses fracking, a process which uses water to extract petroleum and natural gas.
“I lived in Firestone for two years,” says Shane Davis, one of the protestors. “I’m done being a victim of their heavy industry.”
Several calls to Encana and the Colorado Oil & Gas Association were not immediately returned.
