This morning, activists with Beyond Extreme Energy plus partnering groups and individuals broke their 18 day fast outside of FERC (Federal Energy Regulatory Commission). Their fast represents a ramp up of action aimed at FERC’s wild disregard for people or planet.
At the event, activists, fasters, faith leaders, and people from fracked communities came up to share their stories, their experiences and offer up inspiration for a continued fight against big oil and gas and their bought off agencies. People sang, played, danced, marched and literally broke bread with each other.
These are some images from the event. Please share widely and credit Eleanor Goldfield/Art Killing Apathy.
