Group Mobilizing Big Anti-Fracking 'Earthquake'

•, Common Dreams staff

Activists led by are hoping to create their own "earthquake" in Ohio by organizing the biggest anti-fracking gathering ever to mobilize forces and stop the controversial practice.

The action is being led by the Action Fund with grassroots leaders from Ohio’s anti-fracking movement, as well as Gasland director Josh Fox.

The activists plan on gathering in Columbus, Ohio, from June 14 to 17.

On the Don't Frack Ohio! website, organizers write that the fracking industry has caused earthquakes in Ohio, and they urge people to mobilize forces to create an "earthquake" of their own. "Instead, we need to aim for an 8.0 on the political scale–we need to shake Columbus with the biggest anti-fracking gathering yet seen in the U.S."
