article imageVideo: New anti-fracking anthem 'Don't Frack My Mother'

By Anne Sewell     Mar 11, 2013 in Environment
New York - Artists Against Fracking have come up with a new musical video to convince Governor Cuomo of New York State to ensure that the moratorium on fracking passes and continues way past the current two-year mark.
To celebrate the progress made so far in the fight against fracking, with New York State Assembly passing a two-year moratorium on fracking in the state, Sean Lennon has written a little ditty. "Don't Frack My Mother" is the new anthem of the anti-fracking movement.
The fight is not yet over, as the bill still has to pass the State Senate, to then get signed into law by Governor Cuomo, so there is a definite need to keep up the pressure. Interested parties can tweet Governor Cuomo to remind him why fracking is such a bad idea and share the song with him.
You may recognize a few of the faces in the video - you will see that by sharing the video and sending a tweet to Governor Cuomo, you are in very good company! Just in case, below is a list of the artists who have contributed:
