Appalachia Resist has been fighting to stop radioactive fracking wastewater from Pennsylvania and other states being trucked into Ohio and dumped into injection wells. A U.S. Geological Survey study cited by the Columbus Dispatch found that fracking wastewater contains dangerous levels of radium.
On Sunday, January 27 from 3 to 7 p.m., It Looks Like Its Open art gallery at 13 E. Tulane Road is hosting a silent auction, dinner, and anti-fracking discussion with members of Appalachia Resist and Ohio Fracktion. Representatives will present the issues, current campaign progress, and future movement goals, and discuss ways that central Ohioans against fracking can share resources and work together in solidarity.
A dinner of Buffalo-style tempeh, macaroni and cheese, and collard greens will be provided for a suggested donation of $5. Artwork to be auctioned will include pieces from the Columbus area, Southeastern Ohio, Yellow Springs, and Pennsylvania. Music will also be provided.
