Frack Free Maryland: A Call to Action!
- Join us at City Place in Frostburg, MD on February 7, 2015 from 5PM until 9:30PM for a FREE event where we will educate our community about the possibility, and the possible negative effects, of natural gas development in Western Maryland.
There will be speakers from areas in Maryland, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia whose communities and homes have already been affected by the incursions of the natural gas industry, as well as local speakers and representatives from many local and regional organizations already working against fracking in Western Maryland. Also, find out about the latest efforts to pass a law in the Maryland General Assembly to prevent fracking in the Free State. The legislation is supported, for the first time, by every major national, regional, and state environmental organization — more than 60 overall, including Food & Water Watch, Physicians for Social Responsibility, Chesapeake Climate Action Network, and Sierra Club; new sign-ons are occurring daily. Many of these organizations will be tabling information about their work and accepting donations for the continuation of that work, with representatives present to talk with anyone looking to get involved.
In addition, local band Jon Felton and the Soulmobile will be playing a show at the end of the evening in support of this cause. The event is totally FREE, and there will be BBQ pork sandwiches, made possible by a gracious donation from Backbone Food Farm in Oakland, MD, available during the dinner/potluck portion of the evening, and folks are encouraged to bring along a side dish to share with the community, as well as their own utensils and plates to cut down on potential waste.
Please come out and show your support for the fight against fracking in Western Maryland, as well as the fight for our homes, our families, our waters, and our collective futures.
More information can be found on Facebook with a search for “Frack Free Maryland: A Call to Action!” and on the websites of every major organization in the state fighting to Keep Maryland Frack Free.
