On a rainy night in May of 2012, a coalition of celebrities, musicians, scientists and activists gathered in Albany on the governor's front doorstep, calling for a ban on hydraulic-fracturing - 'fracking' for short. With the news that Governor Andrew Cuomo might lift the moratorium on fracking in New York any day, the event was assembled in less than a month. The goal of the varied participants, many of whom had never met before this night, was to explain in clear terms the environmental, economic and health risks of fracking and to motivate people to rise up against the practice using a unique blend of music and message.
The cord that bound them all was that they were first and foremost New Yorkers: New Yorkers Against Fracking.
