One Response to Anti-Fracking Rally in Albany Today

    Speakers included Josh Fox, director of the documentary Gasland, and Bill McKibben, creator of the grassroots organization 350.org. The rally continued to march down the streets and then stopped in West Capitol Park outside of the governor’s office where Sandra Steingraber, a biologist and environmental activist, led the crowd, fists in air, in reciting their pledge of resistance – a moment which Alvery remarked was reminiscent of a civil rights leader from the 1960s.
