This weekend natural gas fracking opponents will meet in dozens of locations around the world to discuss, rally and get informed about the natural gas industry’s fracking practices.

Groups organizing this day of protest believe the environmental fallout from fracking activities is too great. They oppose fracking contamination of groundwater and air, and its outsized consumption of water.

New York and Pennsylvania activists have scheduled several events across the heavily drilled Marcellus Shale (except in NY where a ban still holds).

Find events at the Global Frackdown website.
