December 9, 2016 on Trump choosing McMorris Rodgers for Interior Secretary

Brooklyn, NY — Sources close to President-elect Trump say he is expected to appoint pro-oil drilling advocate Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers to head the U.S. Department of the Interior. Executive Director May Boeve gave the following response:

“Trump is handing over our public lands to the fossil fuel industry. Forget draining the swamp, Trump wants to frack, mine, and drill it. The keep it in the ground movement is ready to fight this reckless expansion of the fossil fuel industry in order to protect our communities and climate. The struggle against the Dakota Access Pipeline has watered the seeds of a thousand other fights. Resistance will only grow over the months to come.”
