This frikken fracking has to stop. The people are protesting,for they are naturally concerned that such operations could literally blow up and destroy their area and homes, pollute the air and water and for what.? So that they have a better life..? It's hard to be peaceful and calm when one contemplates that kind of destruction. I do not however, condone the burning and destruction of public property and the violence that
sometimes takes place with such issues.
