YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) — Anti-drilling demonstrators say a new movie is inspiring a protest in Youngstown, where deep injection of wastewater from hydraulic fracturing was linked to a series of earthquakes.

I doubt that you will see any of these protesters riding a bicycle to this event.

What’s amazing is that Youngstown is one of the most depressed areas in Ohio and fracking would bring some revenue to the area..........useful idiots

Names and photos, if possible. We need to know who the enemy is.
