Day 1, 7:30am: barricades constructed as residents and volunteers gather for breakfast and coffee. Have successfully kept out the frackers thus far. NEEDED: More people! Camp chairs, pop-up tents, music, board games.
Although some of us have been organizing against fracking for years, we began working to create the idea of Occupy Well Street several months ago, hoping to work with the growing public awareness of social movements and direct action, and build our own rural campaign against the out of control natural gas boom.
