Wellsboro anti-frack protest

Wellsboro anti-frack protest

 At 11 am on Tuesday, November 13th, I will initiate the first of a series of monthly protests against shale gas extraction in front of the county courthouse - our county commissioners' office. After 15 minutes the protest will move down the street in front of Representative Baker's office for 15 minutes, and then wrap up with 15 minutes in front of Senator Scarnati's office. Future protests will take place on the 2nd Tuesday of the month to coincide with the commissioners' meeting.

I am calling for a moratorium on further gas permits until a proper harms/benefits analysis, evaluating the cumulative impacts of the entire 10,000+ square mile Pennsylvania Marcellus play, is completed; and based on which, enforceable regulations to ensure the gas is extracted safely, responsible and fairly have been implemented. I am also calling for a full investigation into the scandalous practice of DEP withholding information about contaminants caused by drilling from those affected.

Pennsylvania's public officials must start serving the public interest instead of helping the gas industry "bury its bodies."

This will be a peaceful call for truth and justice. Kindred souls welcome. For further information, John Kesich, kesich@npacc.net, 570-549-2286.

Should also stop in front of the "private office" locations popping up around town. Theres one by the liquor store by the fire dept. And there is one by pudgies and acorn. These places are creapy. I know they are drilling companies because of all the white trucks parked there. And ive seen people with shirts with the shell logo walking in or out. But I wonder why they black out the windows and dont have signs with a business name like all the others? The only info on the doors is "private office".

Yes. We should protest sheets, and all the other gas stations in the country. Also Dominion, Tenn. Gas, Williams Gas and every other gas co. Oh and shut your car off and your stove and heaters. Get a clue!!!

Get a new hobbie! I'd guess that not one thing in your closet reads "Made in the USA"...
What my Grandfather worked so hard for, is gone! Using the resources within our own country is a "GOOD" thing! Sad how some Wellsboro residents can't stand to see their small little town strive. To see their state strive. I'm so proud of these workers and companies!

Who the heck cares if it's their "private office" nosey ppl! I'm so sick of listening to all "you ppl" complain about this!!! Why don't you complain about how much Obama pays his dog handler!

You think you know what you are talking about but you dont. We are lucky if we use 10% of this gas in the U.S.A. The rest is sold overseas. Strive? You talk about how our area is striving. You obviously dont live here do you? If you think that when these companies hire locals, you are wrong. Yes, they hire locals. But the also shit can them shortly after. You know who they keep? The truck loads of illegal immigrants they bring with them. Or do you mean the fact that our state has an unemployment level higher than the national average? Good thinkin...

they have to keep their offices private so people like you are not harassing them all the time.

The coal lobby thanks you for your efforts.  As more and
more electric generation plants and manufacturing
companies convert from coal to natural gas, coal
company profits are starting to plummet.  The only hope
is to stall or stop the development of natural gas.  Get
people involved in protesting natural gas.  It's a cheap
way to make a difference.  People are easily
manipulated into serving your needs.  The coal lobby
has framed it as "Obama's War on Coal".  People eat that line up.  No need to protest the wind farms.  Wind is
not a serious threat to coal.  Long live the coal profits!
