We have decided to hold a constructive activity for anyone who wants to spend energy countering any negative energy of the Shale Summit at Landerhaven.
To this end we will meet at the First UU of Shaker in Room 207 from 11am to 2pm to write letters. First UU of Shaker is located at 21600 Shaker Blvd Shaker Heights, OH 44122. We can write to Ideastream, WCPN, our legislators in Columbus. We can also write letters to the editor.
In writing to Ideastream and WCPN we can question their support of an event which perpetuates misinformation by not having strong voices against drilling on their panel.
Our legislators in Columbus need to hear from constituents in favor of laws to restore local control over oil and gas drilling, a law calling for a ban on injection wells in Ohio, and the Emergency Medical Right to Know law that would take the gag order off of doctors treating patients exposed to drilling chemicals. If you don’t know who your state legislators are you can find out here. Our letters will be taken to Columbus and delivered on March 6th during the “Ohio Is Not for Shale” Legislators Accountability Day sponsored by Buckeye Forest Council and Ohio Citizens Action.
Bring a bag lunch, stationary and your laptop, if you want (there is a wifi connection at the church). Come spend time with others who share your concerns about our land, water, air and health!
