Videos: Marcellus Shale Commission meeting Harrisburg PA April 27
Independent media source Checks and Balances Project is releasing video from the protest and public comment period at the Marcellus Shale Commission meeting in Harrisburg Wednesday April 27, 2011. A coalition of 17 community, labor, and environmental organizations along with over 150 citizens expressed their concerns and frustrations during the public meeting.
The Checks and Balances Project describes its focus as: “holding government officials, lobbyists, and corporate management accountable for their actions related to energy, government spending, public health, and the environment.”
Protest before Marcellus Shale Advisory Commission hearing:
Citizens skipped during Pennsylvania fracking hearing:
“Two Pennsylvania citizens explain how their names weren’t called when they were the first to sign up to be heard at a meeting of the Marcellus Shale Advisory Commission.”
Pennsylvania bureaucrat tries to explain why citizens can’t be heard at fracking hearing:
“The communications director with the Pennsylvania Lieutenant Governor’s office tries to justify why oil and gas industry voices were first heard during a public hearing session at the Marcellus Shale Advisory Commission. A citizen interrupts the gentleman and points out that his statements are incorrect.”
Why not a bigger room for fracking hearing?
“Chad Sailor the communications director with the Pennsylvania Lieutenant Governor’s office tries to explain why a larger venue couldn’t be found for a major public hearing session about fracking in Pennsylvania.”
