Ohio is the Location of Gathering for Fracktivists Around the County

From the Tribune Chronicle:
Anti-fracking activists gathered at Nelson Ledges Quarry Park for three days of celebration, education, solidarity and relaxation during an "International Gathering."
"Our goal over this weekend is to provide information on what fracking is," John D. Williams of McDonald said. "We are talking about its possible impact on communities and showing those who want to organize in their communities ways they can do it.
"We also plan to relax and learn," he said.
Saturday's gathering attracted approximately 500 people from as far away as California, New York and Canada to discuss concerns about the environmental impact of the drilling of natural gas and injection wells.
Local activists are celebrating because Niles City Council last week passed a Community Bill of Rights, which prevents hydraulic drilling within city.
