Pete Seeger Joins Protesters to Say: 'Don't Frack With New York!

• Common Dreams
 Over a thousand anti-fracking protesters—including singers Pete Seeger and Natalie Merchant, and ecologist and author Sandra Steingraber—lined Albany's Empire State Plaza concourse on Wednesday morning to tell Governor Andrew Cuomo to keep fracking out of New York.
Chanting "Ban Fracking Now!" and "We are unstoppable, the statewide ban is possible," the group rallied outside of Cuomo's annual State of the State Address.

“Fracking will jeopardize the health of millions of New Yorkers,” said Sandra Steingraber of Concerned Health Professionals of NY.
