Rally (with Christmas Carols) to Ban Fracking – Bel Air Town Hall

6 December 2016

Gathered outside the Town Hall in Bel Air, MD, concerned townsfolk and friends from around the county and neighboring Cecil and Baltimore counties called for a statewide ban on fracking in Maryland.  After some rousing Christmas carols, the group heard from Tracey Waite, President of Harford County Climate Action, Brooke Harper of Chesapeake Climate Action Network and Steve Mogge of Citizen Shale in Garrett County which would be one of the first to be affected if the Maryland moratorium on fracking was allowed to expire without a ban to replace it.  Immediately afterwards, they, along with concerned citizens from the area, spoke to the town commissioners and the mayor at the Town Council meeting.

Here we are singing before going in to the meeting:

And here Brooke Harper talks about the campaign to ban fracking in Maryland and Steve Mogge talks about the potential impacts in his county, Garrett, where fracking would begin if allowed.   We sing once more at the end, “We wish you a Frack-Free Christmas.”
