Supporters gathered outside the Reno Municipal Court

Today’s trial against PLAN Director, Bob Fulkerson for charges stemming from Nevada’s massive ‘Keep it in the Ground’ protest on June 14th was postponed. Fulkerson and fellow activist, Travis Fuller, were both tackled and detained by Siena Hotel security at the rally, becoming the first people arrested during a year of protest aimed at Bureau of Land Management oil and gas lease sales across the country.

The Reno Municipal Judge ordered a continuum in order to allow time to access video footage from the Siena Hotel. The judge also recused himself due to his history of relationship with the Fulkerson family. A new trial date will be set within the week. Travis Fuller will stand trial on September 21st.

PLAN is incredibly inspired and grateful to the dozens of people who came out to support Bob and stand up for Nevada’s water and our country’s climate future. A special thank you to student activist, Sierra Jickling and Autumn Harry, member of the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe, whose words put the struggle to defend land and water into a national context marked by unprecedented climate catastrophe, but also unprecedented resistance from frontline communities.

We continue to call on President Obama to do what's right by communities and climate by ending new fossil fuel leases on our public lands and waters.

Together, we reaffirmed our commitment to stand together. From the prayer camp against a dangerous oil pipeline at Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota to the inspiring movement to halt new leases in the flood ravaged Gulf of Mexico and the KING national convergence in Washington D.C. on September 15th – we will continue to fight back against a system that persecutes the people who are protecting life and supports the industries and fossil fuel corporations that are causing irreparable harm.

I’ve spent most of my life in Las Vegas, Nevada where I was born and raised. Like most families in Vegas, mine chose to go out-of-state for our weekend vacationing and believed that the rest of the state comprised mostly of tumbleweeds and lonely roads. In...

The future of our economy is in 100% renewable energy

The health and well being of our communities depend on strong climate action from our government, not the removal of protections. Repealing the Clean Power Plan would reduce air quality and result in premature deaths while also worsening climate change. The future of...
