The anti-fracking documentary that had its public premiere in Normal, Illinois – Josh Fox’s Gasland Part 2 – will air on HBO Monday evening, July 8th, 8 pm central time.
Now that the gas industry has regulatory protection for fracking operations in Illinois, the anti-fracking movement is entering a new stage. To help with education on the issue, we can encourage people who haven’t seen it to watch the HBO documentary, when it comes out on HBO or when released on DVD. Josh Fox is encouraging people to host house parties, either on July 8th or later through HBO Go.
For information on how to be involved in central Illinois, contact Illinois People’s Action at (309) 827-9627. The organization Southern Illinoisans Against Fracturing Our Environment (SAFE) is gearing up to fight fracking where it will first appear in downstate communities. For moreo information, read their most recent plan of action on their website.
