Concerned citizens spreading an important message outside Philadelphia City Hall

After being looked over as a spot for a DRBC public hearing, Philadelphia held one of it’s own back on March 8, 2011.  Close to 60 citizens gave powerful and at times emotional testimony.  It was standing room only and host Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds Brown opened up the balconies as well as invited people to sit along the inside of the chamber.

Overwhelmingly the citizens in attendance called for more public comment time, an extended moratorium in the Delaware Watershed, and revised and strengthened regulations from the DRBC based on cumulative impact studies yet to be completed.

Media Mobilizing Project documented the individual testimonies during the evening.

    Hi, Kristian,

    Thank you for your tireless and excellent reporting on fracking and the developments! I read and forward all of your posts to about 25 people. I have been informing people in the Mercer County area for the last 6 months re fracking. Please keep up the great work! I am in contact with Karina Wilkinson at Food and Water Watch. They are a great ally in this fight for our water!

    All the best,
    Donna J. Fasanella

      Hi Donna. Thank you for your encouraging and supportive voice. You are doing quite a bit to educate and illuminate from what you’ve shared. Keep up the great work yourself. The more of us that get invested and involved, the better. Peace.
