Thousands march on gas lobbyists, API to "Stop the Frack Attack"

On the 28th of July, thousands of opponents of natural gas fracking
marched from the US Capitol to the American Petroleum Institute, with an
intermediate stop at the American Natural Gas Association.

The rally at the Capitol and march theafter focussed on the incredible
destruction wrought by hydraulic fracturing for gas, which has literally
"fracked up" so many communities. In some places it is even possible to
ignite gas that flows with the water from people's taps near fracking
sites.



At the American Natural Gas Association. protesters in white
biohazard/chem suits displayed foul looking well water in milk jugs,
well water contaminated with "frack water" from gas hydraulic fracturing
operations.



When the march got to API, protesters blocked all access to the building
by the main entrance, erected and then knocked down a mock drilling
rig, and blockaded the doors with a sit-in. Eventually everyone moved on
Franklin Square for closing.
