Tell Governor Wolf that FARMING and FRACKING DON'T MIX!
From the 100th Pennsylvania Farm Show Saturday, January 9, 2016 Harrisburg, PA
During his first year as Governor, (DEP data from January - November 2015) Tom Wolf has issued 1910 unconventional well permits and 695 unconventional wells have been drilled.
During the opening ceremonies of the Pennsylvania Farm Show, a group of farmers delivered a letter to Governor Tom Wolf urging him to protect Pennsylvania’s agricultural communities by stopping fracking. The letter, which was supported by Pennsylvanians Against Fracking and friends, was signed by over 140 farmers and owners of food-related businesses.

Pennsylvanians Against Fracking held a rally outside the farm show and farmers’ testimonials were read by rally participants. We stand in solidarity with the farmers and other concerned Pennsylvania citizens! PA prefers no fracking!
