Shale Gas Outrage $5k Challenge GrantAppearing: Josh Fox, Director of the Oscar-nominated “Gasland;” Doug Shields, Pittsburgh City Council President; Al Appleton, internationally respected water systems expert;  impacted families from “shale country”;organizers fighting for the life of the Delaware River watershed, the commonwealth, the Marcellus Shale region, and the nation. Additionally lifting our spirits in such serious times will be Rev. Rhetta Morgan, West Philly comic geniusBeth Nixon,  and underground rock & hip-hop from The Band Called Fuse. More special guests will be posted here as they’re confirmed.


Why: Maximizing the sheer numbers attending this rally on September 7th will show a broad-based popular movement that will not tolerate contamination of our air, water, and earth by dirty drilling, or the corruption of our politicians by industry money. We will demand that not one more family be poisoned by fracking and shale gas extraction.

This demonstration is in response to the Marcellus Shale Coalition’s major conference in Philadelphia on Sept. 7th and 8th. CEOs from major fracking companies will be plotting to expand their poisonous operations in PA, NY, OH, MD, WV, VA, and NJ. Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett and former governors Tom Ridge and Ed Rendell will be speaking in support of the industry. Dubbed “Shale Gas Insight,” this is not only a key trade show for the industry, but also a brazen expression of its political muscle.
