Don’t Frack Ohio 2.0
Remember Don’t Frack Ohio from last summer when over a thousand of us marched in Columbus, took over the statehouse rotunda and held a People’s Assembly? We are doing it again this year, with a bolder action and with more grassroots Ohio leadership. We are focusing on Class 2 injection wells and the infusion of toxic radioactive fracking waste brought in from other states and also being generated in Ohio. Last year the Oil & Gas industry injected almost 600 million gallons of toxic waste in our state, with little regard for our communities health and welfare.
When: Saturday, July 27th and Sunday, July 28th
Where: First Congregational Church of Ravenna; Ravenna, Ohio
What: Training topics range from Non-Violent Direct Action to Group Dynamics, and basic to advanced Hydraulic Fracturing and Injection Well information.
When: Monday, July 29th. Rally begins at 1pm with music at the Courthouse Square, we’ll leave for a site nearby impacted by fracking at 2:30pm for an interfaith service.
Where: Courthouse Square, Warren, Ohio
