Ohio Fracktion is a network of individuals interested in supporting community battles against fracking in Ohio. We hope to provide logistical and infrastructural support to individuals and communities who seek to take direct action against the major violations, blowouts, spills, air pollution, water pollution, earthquakes, economic devastation, and other environmental and social consequences that result from this absurd form of gas extraction. We are available to provide organizing and action workshops and document the effects of fracking on those who are impacted.
Members of Ohio Fracktion have blockaded fracking wastewater trucks, helped disrupt governor John Kasich, infiltrated energy conferences, mic-checked a rigged congressional hearing on fracking, been arrested attempting to present resident concerns to the Ohio Division of Natural Resources, marched against the upcoming British invasion of Ohio, and more. We are partnering with 350.org to host an anti-fracking action camp in Cleveland April 13-15, which we hope will help to jumpstart a spring of robust resistance to the fracturing of Ohio!
If you would like to work with us or support the direct action efforts that have already been undertaken, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
