Shale Gas Outrage in Photos (Part One)
Shale Gas Outrage, an empowering two-day stand against fracking and shale gas drilling, brought over 1,500 people together in the streets of Philadelphia outside the Marcellus Shale Coalition’s industry convention. Beginning with a press conference highlighting impacts of poisoned water on real people, including three farmers, Shale Gas Outrage included a rally, march, interfaith blessing, and full-day conference.
While the industry tried to belittle our overwhelmingly strong presence, others listened closely. Today, The Scranton Times Tribune published an editorial titled “Protesters Have Point” in which they conclude: “The industry, and the state agencies that regulate it, have a long way to go if they are serious about proving the protesters wrong.”
Below are just a few shots of the people energizing this growing movement. They made sure our voices were heard as we declared fracking’s impacts on air, water, earth, climate and health are unacceptable and demanded: Not One More Permit…No Fracking Way!
