They surrounded Rocky Flats hand-in-hand around its 17 mile perimeter. The Encirclement was on Saturday, Oct. 15, 1983. This was the action that lead directly to the founding of the Boulder Peace Center, later renamed Rocky Mountain Peace and Justice Center.

Initiative 174 would create 2,500-foot safety zones to protect homes, schools, water sources, and other vulnerable areas from the serious health risks associated with close proximity to fracking operations.
