Video: Anti-Fracking Demonstration Held in Fell’s Point


By BillyClub - Posted on 19 October 2013

On Saturday evening, October 19th, an anti-fracking demonstration, which included interactive light projections, was held in historic Fell’s Point in Bmore. The point of the event was to urge “Governor [Martin O’] O’Malley to ban fracking as the only way to protect Maryland’s climate, property values and quality of life.” The occurrence was part of “more than 200 actions [that are] taking place on Oct. 19th across six continents.” They are aimed at sending a message “to elected officials around the world.” To learn more, go to GlobalFrackdown2 and Food & Water Watch. Publish reports indicate that the governor has “order a study” to find out if fracking offers “unacceptable risk to Marylanders.” His press secretary added that his final decision will be “guided by the science.” Activist Julie Gouldener helped to organize the protest action in the heart of Fell’s Point. Jorge Aquilar, the Southern Regional Director, with Food & Water Watch, shared his views on the issue with me. He fears that the governor is moving forward with developing regulations “to issue fracking permits in Maryland!”
