Thank you, Yoko

Yoko Ono was one of many today who delivered more than 200,000 comments to the NY DEC about fracking and other concerns about the whole drilling process.  The day before, upwards of 2,000 gathered at the NY Capitol Building in Albany, the same day as Governor Cuomo's State of the State Address.  He never mentioned fracking.  The crowd which filled the entire concourse chanted for hours.  Ban fracking now!  Hey, hey, Cuomo!  Gas drilling has got to go!  It was a wonderful day of action.  Pete Seeger, Debra Winger, Sandra Steingraber, and other notables were there, too!

That sounds like it was an inspiring gathering. I hope that there's still some hope on the horizon!
