Okay Hand of Ananke readers, kind of being lazy this week. Once again we are covering hydrofracking, because a) it is important and b) we are holding a rally this weekend! Here is a copy of the announcement:

Hello Rochester, NY Tumblrs!

Next Sunday, July 29 RocPIRG is organizing a rally and water tasting. As we have mentioned before, our state has some of the cleanest drinking water in the country. To showcase these we have people bringing water from around Monroe County, and even some from Ontario County, so we can all taste what we would be losing if hydrofracking came to New York.

Our day will begin at 4 PM at the Liberty Pole downtown Rochester. From there we will be rallying to Acanthus at 337 East Avenue. This will be followed up by a press conference from 5 PM to 6 PM and then from 6 until 8 we will have the water tasting. You will be able to sample water from the following communities:

  • Webster
  • Fairport
  • Penfield
  • Rochester
  • Brockport
  • Brighton

We hope to see you all out there. Let’s show our elected officials how much we love our New York water and how we will not let it be destroyed!

Thank you;
The RocPIRG Crew

So if you are in the WNY region, come and check this out, especially if you are a Monroe County resident!
