Don't Frack My Mother

Artists Against Fracking

The artists of Artists Against Fracking worked together to create this music video for Don’t Frack My Mother, Sean Lennon’s very own anti-fracking anthem. This is the perfect time to celebrate our progress. In case you missed it, the New York State Assembly passed a two-year moratorium on fracking in New York. But this is also the perfect time to keep the pressure up! The bill’s not a done deal. It still has to pass the NY Senate and then get signed into law by Governor Cuomo. 

Help us spread this video on Twitter.  Here's a suggested tweet:

Hey, @NYGovCuomo, sing along with us: #DontFrackMyMother! Watch the video and pass it on: http://ecowatch.com/2013/dont-frack-my-mother/ via @EcoWatch @aafracking

The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed both the strengths and limitations of globalization. The crisis has made people aware of how industrialized food production can be, and just how far food can travel to get to the local supermarket. There are many benefits to this system, including low prices for consumers and larger, even global, markets for producers. But there are also costs — to the environment, workers, small farmers and to a region or individual nation's food security.
