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.
