The US government is failing utterly in it's responsibility to protect the National Parks and areas of land owned by the PEOPLE. We as citizens therefore have a duty to step up, and like angel guardians of the Earth prevent the Fracking from taking place.
Hydraulic Fracturing, or "fracking," is VIOLENT murder of our fellow life forms and sacred spaces. Every site we prevent from drilling is a wonderful achievement.
Occupying the actual frackcing wells is dangerous, which is why I propose ROAD BLOCKADS outside the drill sites to to prevent the gas trucks and employees from arriving. If there are drillers already on site, they are of course allowed - and encouraged, to leave.
When a large enough group gathers with food prepared and tents this will prevent a well from functioning, as well as gaining the medias' attention. This will lead to a chain reaction that will spread like wild fire and END this abominable practice.
We must organize Occupy blockades of Hydraulic Fracturing wells.
The Docu-film GASLAND goes into the horrifying details of Hydraulic Fracturing. uncovering the information that dozens of poisonous chemicals and known carcinogens that are injected into the Earth as part of the process of natural gas extraction. People have died from cancer caused by the poisonous fracking chemicals. Thousands of streams across the United States (and beyond) have been poisoned. The dead birds, fish, rabbits and more are strewn across the banks.
A total ban on fracking is needed, followed by a safe dismantlement of the equipment - NOT being sold so another country to do the same. This should then be followed by a safe cleanup to limit the damage that has already been done.
