When: Mon., Aug. 4, 7-9 p.m. 2014
Zora Gussow will speak about her work in the north-central PA shalefields with the Shalefield Organizing Committee (SOC). SOC has been working in Sullivan and Columbia Counties for the past year building community connections and recording personal accounts of life in the shalefields. We are also facilitating community meetings surrounding a proposed pipeline which would bisect Columbia County. Pending her legal status, Zora will also be speaking about the work of Marcellus Shale Earth First and the current discussion of the use of Non-Violent Direct action in the anti-fracking movement in Pennsylvania, and in particular the Jersey Shore 5 road blockade in the Tiadaghton State Forest in March of 2014.
