Some relevant, timely correspondence from a local fracktivist:
Good morning! Two items from actions over the weekend involving public lands.
1. On Friday approximately two dozen concerned citizens and groups attended the MWCD board meeting in New Philadelphia, Ohio. 15 issued statements to the board and none were in favor of the decisions the board has been making allowing fracking in the conservancy district including: water sales, leasing and construction of well sites, access roads and pipeline easements. MWCD is hiding behind 'language', the way they describe certain actions to get around the promises they have made to the public. A large coalition is forming and more will be announced soon. If you are a resident on or near Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District lands we need you to step up and help! 'Our Water is Not For Shale' Video: http://youtu.be/LQd9sJi9kCk
2. Please take note of this important event sponsored by CPOP yesterday. The attack on public lands has begun and it will take the voice of the people to change that. Please get involved in some way,whatever way you can. Contact info in the release.
Please remember that just sharing this information, communicating with others in your community and engaging in conversations with your elected officials is what is changing the face of fracking here in Ohio and many other places. Keep the pressure on and do not despair, we are making a difference!
