Activists Rally Against Fracking in Tallahassee

April 5, 2017
Topic: Fracking

Over 200 activists and caring citizens from across the state of Florida held a rally in the state capital of Tallahassee and met with legislators to educate them about the environmental, economic and health harm from fracking. PSR Florida was well represented.

Speaking is Senator (R) Dana Young, from Tampa who introduced a SB 442 to ban
fracking. She drew bi-partisan support, and has passed its first Senate committee
hearing unanimously.

This is what Florida sits on-karst topography, underground drainage systems with
sinkholes and caves, and interconnecting aquifer systems

This was taken at a press event in Dade City, Florida on March 31, 2017
with the Mayor of the city, Camille Hernandez (in the middle) and Brooke
Errett, organizer for Food & Water Watch. The Dade City Mayor and City
Council voted unanimously to support a ban fracking ordinance last year
and this year are urging their citizens to support SB 442 and HB 451 to
Ban Fracking in Florida. The Dade City Garden Club members were in
attendance and were instrumental in getting the ordinance passed!
