On a rainy night in May of 2012 a coalition of musicians, scientists and activists gathered in Albany, NY, on the governor’s front doorstep, calling for a ban on hydraulic-fracturing. 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.
