Dryden: The small town that changed the fracking game
Yesterday we told the personal story of Helen Slottje, who took on the oil and gas industry in New York, and whose work has led to local action to control fracking throughout the state. Today’s video shows the impact of Helen’s work in New York.
It’s a powerful video, in which real people talk about how drilling has affected them, their experience of fighting for their property rights, and their sense of empowerment at being able to control their own destiny.
I strongly recommend you take the 11 minutes to watch this. It shows what local communities can do when they unite to defend their rights and their way of life.
