Unfortunately for me, all events in Florida are too far away. Wish they had an event in Orlando but isn't the case.

Fracking should be banned world-wide, as pollution caused by fracking won't stop at the border.

All comments about fracking are already made in the past (you just have to search a bit), so let's just say:

Stop fracking before fracking stops us!

Thanks Sheryl.

Fracking is destroying our planet. We need to be smart enough not to put cracks and holes in the deep below the surface of the planet. Out West there are lakes and rivers disappearing. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that the water is going into the ground to fill in the voids they removed oil and gas from. It is not safe under any circumstances, it even destroys our drinking water.

We don't have anything in Toronto for that day. We do have a big public meeting regarding the Enbridge Line 9 proposed oil pipeline at St. Paul's Church 300 Bloor W. on Friday at 18:00 hours to 20:00 hours and then the big rally at the Metro Convention Centre, 255 Front W at 12:00 hours on Saturday, Oct. 19th.

Please attend if you can. The fresh drinking water for 18 million people in Ontario and Quebec is at stake.

We ARE having an event nearby on Saturday. Unfortunately, my daughter and her family are moving that day so I'm sure I'll be babysitting or helping with the move in some other way. Maybe I could take the grandkids. Never too early to get them started...

Thanks, Sheryl!

Fracking isn't a subject we deal with here in Israel, not to my knowledge anyway, but I am all against it and know what destruction it brings about for the land, earth and humans.

I hear 80% of the UK is up for fracking D B......not sure what the laws are over there but here in the USA they can put one of those well right in your yard and up to so many feet near your home, the distance isn't all that far either.

You are correct Susanne, it's never too soon to teach the grandchildren their civic duty. My granddaughter has been out with me for various protest since she was age 2. I make her small signs for her to hold, at the ripe old age of 6 she is a pro now. For our town she was the youngest Occupier when Occupy Wall Street was at it's height.

I'd check into that Giana, this fracking seems to pop it's ugly head everywhere. I didn't think Florida was on the hit list. I'd seen maps that was showing up north and such, we are actually a big sand bar, I thought one needed to be on bedrock. Then I started to find out that the everglades was in the scope hairs and there was a large protest over by Naples as there is fracking going to be done over there. So I'm not sure if any place is off limits.

Noted, shared, and have been to more than one-lol--and will continue to support "NO FRACKING". As I have stated to many including politicians - "The only thing that needs fracking in this country is the government"! Blessings to all who love Mother Earth and her inhabitants.

Stop fracking FRACKING! It is a new swearword! Thanks for this Dandelion - apparently according to the Friends of the Earth France has banned fracking - if so it is marvelous news - somewhere has sense! Aha - have just checked - it is right

Seems the French are on to a lot of things we should be doing. I recall how it was France that warned the USA not to go into Iraq, that there was NO evidence of the LIES being fed the American people. A big media hype got going not to call french fries .....french fires anymore, to call them American fries. Ridiculous, but that is what did happen and as we know today, the French were ABSOLUTELY CORRECT. Now we have our War Criminals still selling books and living out their lives while half million Iraq people are dead and our own citizens too.

I was glad to see there is one locally, but already have plans unfortunately.....will try to see if I can get there for a short period of time.

Noted and petition signed...have been signing many petitions against fracking. I continue to hope that some way it will be stopped - all those toxic chemicals in the underground water supplies, as fresh water that comes from undergroung is going to be acrucial in the future. The money being wasted on fracking should be going for finding alternatives. I am proud to say that here in Alberta, Canada the University of Alberta is working on an alternative fuel right now.
Thanks Dandelion.

Frackdown today!

I was at a rally today, with about 3499 others in MontÚlimar, a 33 000 town in France halfway between Lyon and Marseille.

Not as numerous as a few years ago in Villeneuve de Berg when we were 23 000, but for a mid-october saturday with 5 other gatherings in the country, and just a few days after he supreme court validated the law prohibiting hydrolic fracturing (fracking) not a bad number.

I mean that by validating this law the supreme court makes the general public tends to think that the fight here in France is over, and therefore is far less motivated than before.

BUT the fight is far from over, as only the HYDROLIC fracturing is prohibited, not all the other ways of fracturing (high-pressured gas, sand or whatever method they come up with). And not only that, there are loopholes in the law that might make it possible to do testing with hydrolic fracturing.

And as -even more disturbing- in politics everything always remains possible due to "changing situations" the battle never will be over.

Which is a pity.

Poor planet Earth! (as long as there'll be human beings with lot's of money and very little brains....)

I'ts up to you now America!
