Cincinnati Marches to Ban Fracking
Cincinnati citizens from the Southwest Ohio No Frack Forum marched in the Northside 4th of July Parade, calling for Cincinnati City Council to protect the health, safety, and welfare of Cincinnatians by banning fracking related activities in the Queen City.
“Frack-ers stay out of town, Cincy ain’t your dumping ground,” was one of the chants to the crowd of some 15,000 Cincinnatians led by Danny Berchenko of 350.org. We had consistent applause throughout the parade route and a few people even got out of their chairs to march with us. It was abundantly clear to everyone that Cincinnati doesn’t want this industry in our city.
MWCD Suspends water sales pending further research!
Keep sending those letters we are making a difference
The Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District, MWCD, is a state agency that has control over this watershed, which covers 20% of Ohio and 18 counties. They have authorized the sale of about 11 million gallon of water to Gulfport Energy to finish a horizontal well a few weeks ago. They plan on selling many millions of gallons in the near future.
It is crucial that we write letters to the 18 Conservancy Court Judges asking them to stop this sale of water. You can write your own letter or just print this letter out, sign and send to all 18 judges - it will only take 5 minutes. Find out how here.
