Join us in Coitsville, OH this Sunday at 6:30 P.M. in solidarity with residents from Coitsville and beyond who have already seen the destructive impacts of fracking to say NO to more frack wells, poisoned water, and contaminated air. Following last month’s injection well sermon led by Reverend Monica Beasley-Martin, residents will again join together in prayer outside the construction site for a vertical frack well slated to be drilled soon in Coitsville. People of all faiths (or no faith) are encouraged to attend.
Just outside the city of Youngstown, Coitsville is the home of Jaime Frederick, who stood up to the gas industry last Sunday at the statehouse in Columbus, testifying to the harm that fracking has caused her and urging John Kasich to “stop protecting the gas companies.”
At the statehouse, hundreds of Ohioans stood up to ban fracking and pledged an oath of resistance to the natural gas industry. Since our politicians and regulators are corrupted, we need to take action ourselves to protect Ohio communities from the tyranny and poison of hydrofracking. You are invited to stand with the residents of Coitsville this Sunday evening and send a powerful message to the gas industry, our government, and each other: we take our oath of resistance seriously and will stand together in solidarity to protect our neighbors from destructive drilling.
