Speak Out About Marcellus Shale Gas Drilling! Protest at Gov. Corbett’s Marcellus Shale Advisory Commission Meeting Wednesday April 27th in Harrisburg

April 25, 2011

After writing tens of thousands of letters, “Days of Action” predominate right now to raise our voices in direct protest against the harm done to human health, air, water and earth  by fracking operations. The contamination must stop!

Here’s another chance to put the message across that health is more important than profit.

In the Philadelphia area, please contact Protecting Our Water’s Loretta Gary – 610.761.4685loretta.gary@gmail.com – for information and coordination of transportation to the protest in Harrisburg.

Protecting Our Waters is one of many organizations endorsing this action initiated by Clean Water Action and the statewide Campaign for Clean Water:

Speak Out About Marcellus Shale Gas Drilling!

Protest at Gov. Corbett’s Marcellus Shale Advisory Commission Meeting

Wednesday, April 27

11:30 – 1:30

Outside the DEP office, Rachel Carson State Office Building

400 Market St., Harrisburg, PA 17101

 

The DEP offices at the Rachel Carson State Office Building on 400 Market Street, Harrisburg PA.

Gov. Corbett has established a Marcellus Shale Advisory Commission that is stacked with gas drilling companies and campaign contributors. We need to let them know that we want a real Commission that is balanced and represents people who are impacted by gas drilling. The state should listen to what people in Pennsylvania really want them to do about Marcellus Shale drilling. They shouldn’t just listen to oil and gas companies. Join us in speaking out on April 27!

The Commission will be meeting from 10:30 – 3:30. You can sign up at the meeting to give public comment to the Commission, most likely at 3:00.
