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

Thanksgiving can be a tricky holiday if you're trying to avoid animal products — after all, its unofficial name is Turkey Day. But, as more and more studies show the impact of meat and dairy consumption on the Earth, preparing a vegan Thanksgiving is one way to show gratitude for this planet and all its biodiversity.
