Occupy the Hot Zone : local communities protest against the Suncor's refinery near Denver

News Commerce City, United States - 10 March 2012

On Saturday, March 10th, families from the local communities that are directly affected by the Commerce City Suncor refinery and several organizations including Colorado American Indian Movement, Deep Green Resistance (DGR) Colorado, Front Range Rising Tide, 350.org, Occupy Denver, and Boulder Food Rescue came together for a demonstration against Suncor and the oil seep contaminating the Sand Creek and South Platte River.

They occupied the ‘hot zone’ on the shore of Sand Creek, where carcinogenic benzene from Suncor’s refinery has been seeping into the water. Water samples were taken to be analyzed at a local laboratory.
