YES = Truly essential reading
"Don Gilliland of the Harrisburg Patriot-News has written a superb series of four articles about the December 2013 Pennsylvania Supreme court ruling that overturned the Act 13 drilling law and breathed life - for the first time - into the Environmental Rights Amendment of Pennsylvania's state Constitution.
"The articles are essential reading for anyone wanting to understand Pennsylvania's dubious environmental history, the current state of Marcellus Shale regulation - and most importantly, the history and perhaps the future of environmental rights that have chiefly been observed only in the breach in the Keystone State.

Can you help? Citizens' Bill of Rights to protect drinking water, homes and air quality-no matter what businesses come to the city of Youngstown. We are taking back local control for our residents to be able to live in safety and not have their health threatened by toxic chemicals. We need generous support (time, promotion and/or financial) in bringing the Community Bill of Rights charter amendment to the attention of voters and ALSO getting voters to the polls on May 6—funds for billboards, handouts, mailings, and radio spots. Can you help?

For Immediate Release:  January 8, 2014 - Youngstown, Ohio, January 8, 2014  -  The Youngstown, Ohio area is a community that experienced what residents and scientists now know was at least 109 earthquakes in a place where there had been no previously recorded quakes.  The multiple Youngstown earthquakes included the now-famous 4.0 magnitude 2011 fracking waste injection well – related quake.
      Concerned citizens of Frackfree America National Coalition, based in Youngstown, and Frackfree Mahoning Valley have been following events in earthquake-rocked Azle, Texas and earthquake swarms in Oklahoma, where some reputable scientists suspect that the largest quake, a 5.6 magnitude in Prague, Oklahoma, is linked to injection well operations. 
      The local citizens’ groups are now reaching out to seek dialogue, share information, and to open channels of communication with the Azle, Texas community, with Oklahoma, with Ohio or other states with neighborhoods that may be experiencing similar situations involving injection wells and man-made earthquakes.  The groups are seeking to work together with others to find real, fair solutions to our common problems and concerns, here in Youngstown, Ohio, and other places with apparently similar issues, like Azle, Texas.
      An Azle, Texas townhall meeting took place on January 2, 2014 where over 800 residents gathered to get questions answered by Texas state officials (the Texas Railroad Commission) about the approximately 30 earthquakes they have had in about the last two months, according to multiple news reports.  In an astonishing turn of events, those officials reportedly would not answer the concerned citizens’ questions.  Residents of the Youngstown area have experienced other similar situations of a shocking lack of transparency on the part of their state regulatory agency, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR).  The Youngstown group says public officials need to be responsive, honest, and transparent to the public and to the media.

Sunday, November 24, 2013. Niles, Ohio
Two Youngstown, OH community members were arrested today at a nonviolent protest and rally at a fracking wastewater injection well site in Niles, OH. The two protesters were arrested for blocking trucks from entering the well site while holding a “Fracking Hurts Communities” banner. More than 50 people from Ohio and Pennsylvania attended the rally.
“The state of Ohio has refused to protect its communities from fracking,” said Chris Khumprakob, who was arrested during the protest. ”Hydraulic fracturing is poisoning our community and endangering our health, so we’ve come together today as a community to symbolically cleanse our water and take a stand for our health. The state government won’t protect our well-being, so we’ve decided to protect it ourselves.”
