This looks like an essential event for those working to stop the Shell Petrochemical Plant in Beaver, for those working to address climate change, for those working for clean air, and for those working to eliminate the threats of fracking in Pennsylvania and beyond. It is all connected and we need to join forces with activists around the world. Check out the notable list of partners, then sign up to attend here: http://peoplevsoilgas.org/ .
