Why Shale Gas Outrage Filled Philadelphia Streets - Protesters from shale gas "sacrifice zones" and downstream communities protest industry conference, press for bans and moratoria to "stop fracking now"

Philadelphia, PA -- People from throughout Pennsylvania and the shale regions of neighboring New York, Ohio, West Virginia and beyond, along with downstreamers from Maryland and Delaware, joined together to protest the Marcellus Shale Coalition's industry convention in downtown Philadelphia today, making a unified statement to "Stop Fracking Now."

Shale Gas Outrage rallied from 12:00 to 2:00 PM outside the Convention Center on Arch Street, led by Protecting Our Waters and endorsed by over 45 organizations, all calling for a moratorium on shale gas development wherever it is occurring.

Speakers included Josh Fox, Bill McKibben, Maya van Rossum, Sandra Steingraber, Stephen Cleghorn, Stewart Acuff, Wes Gillingham, John Scorsone, Wenonah Hauter, Doug Shields, and members of Pennsylvania communities impacted by gas extraction and development --Tammy Manning and her granddaughter Madison from Susquehanna County; farmers Carol French and Carolyn Knapp from Bradford County; Craig Stevens of Susquehanna County; Mary Rodriguez, a nurse from Luzerne County; and Kevin Heatley, an ecologist from Lycoming County. Musical talent also contributed to the day: Rhetta Morgan, singer from Philadelphia; Spiritchild from Brooklyn, singer song writer Zach Freidhof, and Pennsylvania guitarist Freebo.
