Make Our Voices Heard - Occupy Well Street in Bloomsburg, PA This Thursday!

Dear citizens of northeast central Pennsylvania, residents of Columbia County, activists with Occupy Well Street, committed environmentalists and fracktivists, and local "shalers."

Please join us March 29th, 7pm, McCormick 2303, Bloomsburg University, for a debate concerning the implications of natural gas drilling for Pennsylvanians.

Dr. Anthony R. Ingraffea will be speaking in a debate panel with Tom Shepstone of Energy In Depth, Gene Pine and Seth Pelepko of the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental “Protection."  The debate will offer an excellent opportunity for questions and observations concerning natural gas extraction - including the opportunity for respectful opposition.  Please come and make your voice heard.

Your voice is important - and the Green Campus Initiative has not featured the voices of local citizens - the people most impacted by drilling.

Our aim is to raise local awareness of the local, regional, national and global implications of hydraulic fracturing--a gas extraction process that endangers not only property, community, and health - but life itself  in virtue of the massive amounts of irrecoverable water required to frack and the collateral pollution it produces.

Despite its rather uninformative name, Energy In Depth - and its representatives - operates as a propaganda machine for the fracking industry.

This is not what we want for our community!

Join us outside the panel room at 6:15pm as we present our side of the story, and come prepared to share yours!  We also ask that concerned residents of the Marcellus Shale region attend this panel prepared to ask tough questions of the panelists, and to point out the deception and lack of protection from the PA-DEP.

Contact occupywellstreet (at) riseup (dot) net for any questions.
