The Stop the Frack Attack network (of which Earthworks is a part) held a People's Forum yesterday.

As the Bureau of Land Management weakened fracking regulations at the oil and gas industry's request, as the Senate Energy committee held a forum without a single impacted citizen, sixteen people living with the negative impacts of the fracking boom stood up and told their stories.

And it was all on video. Watch it!
