When it comes to the fight for a sustainable, frack-free future, environmental activist, Daryl Hannah, and United For Action founder and New Yorkers Against Fracking lead organizer, David Braun, are in it for the long haul. Pictured here, in October, at the 23rd Environmental Media Association Awards, these two dynamic friends of the earth got a lot of attention for the fashion they’re promoting.
Everybody Wants One
Braun posted the photo a few days ago, and now fractivists are clamoring to get their tees. Sorry, I don’t have a link, but you can follow this Facebook thread and ask Braun for one personally.
I can share Braun’s eloquent video in which he calls on President Obama to quit fracking around with our nation’s energy policy.
“President Obama, I Worked For You. Listen To The Science!”
I can also share this cool word cloud. It was texted out by Food and Watch Watch after the recent 2013 worldwide Global Frackdown. I don’t think you can ever have too many anti-fracking images, what with the latest gas industry advertising blitzkrieg. Wonder if those shirts come in kid’s sizes…
“So many great reasons people supported the Global Frackdown…” These are most commonly used words describing their reasons:
England, Canada, United States, Ireland, Czech Republic, France, Denmark, South Africa… On Saturday, September 22, 2012, energetic yet peaceful protests sprouted up around the globe as many thousands gathered to demonstrate their concern over fracking for shale gas.
Images of The Global Frackdown from nearly every continent depict the growing outrage over this dangerous and polluting form of extreme fossil fuel extraction. They’ve been gloriously collected on the Global Frackdown facebook page.
According to EcoWatch.org in Thousands Rally Around The World To Ban Fracking: “Major actions overseas included a rally on the steps of the European Parliament; demonstrations in front of Parliament buildings in South Africa, Bulgaria and the Czech republic; marches in Argentina; grassroots activities in Paris and the south of France, and screenings of the film Gasland in Spain.”
“One for all and all for one … “
