In this modern day David vs Goliath story - 62 year old grandmother and anti fractivist Vera Scroggins is singled out and brought to trial by multibillion dollar corporation Cabot Oil and Gas.
It all came to head after she conducted a celebrity tour of the gas fields of Susquehanna County, PA for Yoko Ono, Sean Lennon, Susan Sarandon, Arun Ghandi and a host of media. This trial may well be considered a "SLAPP suit" -Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation - a lawsuit that is intended to censor, intimidate, and silence critics by burdening them with the cost of a legal defense until they abandon their criticism or opposition.
Vera's hearing to determine whether there is a permanent injunction is January 27, 2014. Those who value their first amendment rights should comment and share this video - and attend the court proceedings if possible. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
