Fracking opponents heading to Washington for July 28 rally

The North Carolina chapter of the Sierra Club and several other state and national environmental organizations are teaming up for a “Stop the Frack Attack” rally and march on the west lawn of the Capitol in Washington, DC on Saturday July 28.

With all the attention fracking has been receiving in North Carolina and around the nation, organizers are expecting a large and energetic turnout — even by Washington standards.

The Sierra Club will be organizing free transportation (with food provided) to and from the event with a van leaving from the Triangle the morning of the 28th and returning that night.
