Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett seems to have heard protesters today during his inauguration speech…but will he listen?
Whether it was one person, 100 people, or two hundred people as some estimates say, the Gas Truth of Central PA rally earlier today was impressive and made it’s mark. A spirited crowd armed with great signs, clever costumes, and loud voices made themselves heard. Some of the early articles are saying we could be heard chanting and voicing our concerns as citizens of Pennsylvania, making it tough for Corbett’s audience to hear his speech.
‘Gas-drilling protesters chant during Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett’s speech‘ from PennLive.com and the Patriot News has some great photos.
‘Corbett takes oath as 46th Pa. governor‘ article from the My San Antonio web site quotes Senate President Joe Scanati as saying; “No doubt the First Amendment is alive and well in Pennsylvania today” in response to chants of “Tom Corporate — no way, no fracking in Pa.” from the gathered protesters.
‘York countians attend Corbett inauguration, for support and protest‘ states that although the protesters couldn’t hear Tom Corbett’s inauguration speech, he could certainly hear the voices of the public concern.
