Greens Call for Earth Day Demonstration at DEP03.30.11

Members of the Green Party of Philadelphia,, decided at their monthly meeting on March 24, to hold a demonstration at the PA Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) on Thursday, April 21 in recognition of Earth Day.

Greens hold that DEP has not been able to stop gas drillers (frackers) from polluting Pennsylvania’s streams and rivers. In addition, DEP has allowed gas drillers to spread radioactive drilling waste on dirt roads in rural areas of the Commonwealth.

Greens oppose fracking at Council Hearing
By Ross Levin

On the evening of March 8, Green Party members joined other members of the community at a hearing in City Council Chambers on fracking in the Delaware River Basin. For more than two hours, citizens had the chance to voice their opinions on proposed fracking regulations from the Delaware River Basin Commission, even though the Commission had decided not to hold an official hearing in the largest city that will be affected by its decisions.
