On July 22, 2014, the Unist’ot’en camp evicted a TransCanada crew working on the Coastal Gaslink fracked gas pipeline, within their territories in so called “British Columbia”. If caught trespassing again, TransCanada’s equipment will be confiscated.

October 2013 the Royal Canadian Mounted Police descended on a peaceful anti-fracking protest led by the Mi’kmaq of Elsipogtog and their allies. In this film the voices of some of the people involved in the anti-fracking movement talk about what happened and why they took the stand against hydraulic fracturing and how the heavy handed police response has affected their people.

Judge rules administration overlooked fracking risks in California mineral leases
WS – Note the word-smithing…” overlooked fracking risks” . No… The Obama administration broke the law. This is Corporate Media “Fogging”. COMPLETELY IGNORED and OVERLOOKED are not synonymous.
A federal judge has ruled the Obama administration broke the law when it issued oil leases in central California without fully weighing the environmental impact of “fracking,” a setback for companies seeking to exploit the region’s enormous energy resources.
The decision, made public on Monday, effectively bars for the time being any drilling on two tracts of land comprising 2,500 acres leased for oil and gas development in 2011 by the Interior Department’s Bureau of Land Management in Monterey County.
U.S. District Judge Paul Grewal in San Jose ruled that the federal government erred, and violated U.S. environmental law, in declining to conduct a full-fledged environmental impact study of its oil leasing for the Monterey Formation.
JUDGE FINDS RISKS ‘COMPLETELY IGNORED’ More…
Today is “Name Yourself Day” – Is Yasser Arafat to over the top?
WS – Will this lead to treatments for depleted uranium mutations too? Let’s hope.
WS – They’re are No numbers available for Corporations that are fuc$ing with deadly viruses. With the US taxpayer funding research for private corporations at Colleges and Universities, “plausible deniability”, will shield the corporations should diseases of mass destruction get released, by espionage, accident or human testing. – Just say’in.
Let’s start with the good news: The vial of Guanarito, a rare disease found only in Venezuelan rodents, that was reported missing from a Texas lab on Wednesday is probably nothing to worry about. First of all, there’s no evidence that Guanarito can be transmitted from person to person—only from rodent to person (though when that happens, primarily to “male agricultural workers,” it isn’t pleasant). Nor does it appear that the vial was spirited away by an evildoer—more likely, itl was destroyed after accidentally falling to the floor, Galveston National Laboratory scientific director Scott Weaver tells the Houston Chronicle. Galveston National Laboratory is housed at the University of Texas Medical Branch. Reports the Chronicle:
“We don’t think anything that happened this past week endangers the community,” Weaver said. “We think this is an error that any one facility is inevitable and we are going to improve to prevent this in the future.”
Marine toxicologist, Riki Ott explains how local communities can protect the health of their citizens by banning harmful chemicals. A part of the "Making it Right for Real: Working together to Ban Dispersants and Make Democracy Work!" event on Feb 23rd.

Fracking Ban Stands in New York Town; Victory for Local Communities
Allegheny County Council approves fracking at the Pittsburgh International Airport in a move that will bring in $500 million dollars to the county.
"We're sitting on the Saudi Arabia of America!" one councilman exclaimed during his speech on why he's voting yes.
You are invited to a deep democracy training and strategic retreat. As part of the training, Marine Biologist Riki Ott will share templates for municipal ordinances and resolutions to ban toxic chemicals, including Corexit, as part of a national action. The same chemicals used in dispersants are also being used in the Fracking Process and are being mixed with the TarSands Oil to make it flow through pipelines. At the core of this presentation are the tools that towns, counties, municipalities etc can use to legally protect their communities from these highly toxic chemicals.

Weaving Together Ungovernable Flesh: The Activist Threat of State Legibility
New York, October 18, 2012---A second excerpt from the Q & A after the benefit screening of Gasland at the IFC Center on Sixth Avenue and West 3rd, where Josh Fox's Oscar-nominated film was released theatrically in 2010. Yuka Honda and Sean Lennon of Artists Against Fracking speak out against hydraulic fracturing.
|Gasland Benefit: Sean Lennon, Yuka Honda, Josh FoxNew York, October 18, 2012 -- As the hydrofracking issue becomes increasingly contentious, with deadlines approaching on every front, opponents are mounting efforts to alert residents both Upstate and in New York City to the hotly debated drilling technique's dangers. Residents of the Southern Tier, which sits on top of the Marcellus Shale, are concerned about known carcinogens in the water used in the drilling process, waste water and air pollution from methane gas, as well as the loss of their homes' real estate value once the land has been contaminated. Clean-water advocates in New York City share their concern about pollution of the aquifer which, they fear, could affect the city's watershed due to seepage of chemicals used in fracking. Also, local environmentalists and residents are worried about potentially dangerous levels of radon in Marcellus Shale natural gas. And there is also fear over the risk of pipeline explosions in a dense urban area, such as the West Village, where the Gansevoort Peninsula is the endpoint for a 16-mile, 30-inch, high-pressure pipeline that Spectra is constructing from New Jersey under the Hudson River. On Oct. 18 there was a special screening of the Academy Award-nominated film "Gasland" at the IFC Center on Sixth Ave. at W. Third St.|
New York, December 1, 2012--Today's 1 pm protest rally at Spectra Energy's construction site in the West Village had as its focus the expedited construction work taking place this week-end. Prior to shutting up shop for the winter, Spectra is rushing through the installation of their high pressure natural gas pipeline under the Hudson from New Jersey to emerge at the Gansevoort site, where Con Edison will pick up the work and build out the last section of the pipe to link to their distribution system. About 150 to 200 people attended the rally, organized by Occupy the Pipeline. Monica Hunken of OTP and Clare Donohune, of Sane Energy Project, commented on the significant gas news of the week: namely, the passage of HR 2606 by President Obama which will allow drilling to take place in national parks and wildlife sanctuaries, areas reserved for recreation; and in an instance of particularly egregious timing, a pipeline to be constructed through the Rockaways, an area devastated by hurricane Sandy and still in the process of recovery.
This is the second video subMedia.tv has produced about the struggle to stop the a natural gas transport project called the Pacific Trails Pipeline or PTP. The Unis'tot'en, a clan of the Wet'suet'en Nation have built a protection camp to bock PTP, in so called British Columbia in Canada. This is the third time the Unis'tot'en have called for a convergence in their territories. This year's camp attracted over 150 people who came from as far east as Montreal and as far south as Florida. The camp organizers opted not to tap large environmental ngo's for material support, and instead reached out to grassroots, community based allies. Out of the proposed pipeline projects that would cross through Unis'tot'en land, Pacific Trails is the first one slated to begin construction and poses and immediate threat.
