Hundreds Protest Fracking in Ohio as Drilling Expands | TruthOut

Columbus, Ohio – Hundreds of people gathered in Ohio’s capital city on Sunday to protest hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” the oil and gas drilling process that is rapidly expanding across the Buckeye state as the industry takes advantage of friendly politicians, shale gas reserves and unconventional drilling techniques.

The protesters marched through downtown Columbus and temporarily occupied the front hall of the Ohio Statehouse. The group Don’t Frack Ohio organized the protest and three days of workshops, which featured big name speakers such as “Gasland” director Josh Fox and climate author Bill McKibben.
