Yoko Ono and Sean Lennon Lead a Bus Tour Through Fracking Country
In photo (right), Yoko Ono and Sean Lennon speak with resident Ray Kemble (in plaid shirt), a former gas company worker whose water became contaminated after drilling took place 500 feet from his home in Dimick, Pennsylvania. Kemble displays his contaminated well water to Arun Gandhi (grandson of Mohandas Gandhi), Ono, Lennon and Susan Sarandon. “Do you think this water looks safe enough to drink?” said Ono. See Rolling Stone photos of the bus tour.
Boulder City Council agrees to study if the City Code has any protection against fracking within Boulder city limits or on city-owned Open Space. Frack Free Boulder attended the City Council Retreat where our letter to City Council helped place fracking on the 2013 Retreat Agenda and 2013 Work Plan.
