Drill rigs do not belong in kitchen windows—OVEC marches against fracking

"Stop the Frack" march on Washington, Saturday, July 28
Editing by Carolyn Bennett

Thousands of people from across the United States will converge on the U.S. Capitol on Saturday, July 28 in the first national action on fracking.

Demonstrators will tell Congress, the President and the world to 
End the rush to drill
Stop the frack attack.
Invest/plan a more sustainable future where drilling for natural gas does not threaten air and water
The OVEC-Washington, D.C., rally starts at 2 p.m. at the Capitol, then proceeds on a two-mile demonstration. Along the way, it “stops to deliver frack water to the American Natural Gas Association (ANGA) and American Petroleum Institute (API).”

This message comes from an OVEC press alert.

Ohio Valley Environmental Coalition (OVEC) is a nationally recognized grassroots organization dedicated to preserving and protecting our natural heritage. Its published mission is to organize and maintain a diverse grassroots organization dedicated to the improvement and preservation of the environment through education, grassroots organizing and coalition building, leadership development and media outreach. Formed   in 1987 this non-profit group’s work encompasses much of West Virginia and portions of southern Ohio and eastern Kentucky.

OVEC’s current major work focuses on:
Drinking water under threat
Ending Mountaintop Removal / Valley Fill Strip Mining
Ending water Contamination from Coal Slurry Injection and the Danger of Coal Slurry Impoundments
Improving the Enforcement of Mining Laws
Establishing the Clean Elections System of Campaign Financing in West Virginia
Other COAL-related issues include:
Exposing the Dirty Facts about Coal-to-liquid
Energy Policy
Overweight Coal Trucks

Waterways under threat
“If you think drill rigs don’t belong in kitchen windows, join us in D.C. to stop the frack attack!”
