Update on December 27, 2012
Update from Yoko Ono:
I wanted to take a moment to personally thank you for joining the Artists Against Fracking campaign. I can hardly believe the momentum you've helped create in opposition to fracking in New York and across the country. The work being done is a true inspiration.
If you haven't added your voice to the petition to ban fracking please join us (http://www.causes.com/causes/799563-artists-against-fracking/actions/1697498), your voice is important.
Thinking about this year, my thoughts drift back to when John (Lennon) and I first bought our farm in Delaware County, New York. Tucked away in the Catskill mountains, we were a part of a tight-knit community surrounded by pristine rivers and beautiful wildness. Now this community, and hundreds just like it, are threatened as Governor Cuomo considers lifting New York's moratorium on fracking.
This year has been critical to raising awareness about fracking as a dirty, dangerous energy. Now we need to act! 2013 is about taking that awareness and turning it into action. I don't want fracking in my community; I don't want fracking in ANY community. Next year is going to be a very important turning point for us.
The first two weeks of 2013 are critical. By signing and sharing the petition (http://www.causes.com/causes/799563-artists-against-fracking/actions/1697498) now, your voice will have 2x the power. Not only will your petition be delivered to Governor Cuomo in February, but it will also be delivered to the Department of Environmental Conservation on Jan 11 as an official comment opposing fracking. We want to break the record for official comments and we'll need your help. You can do this by signing the petition (http://www.causes.com/causes/799563-artists-against-fracking/actions/1697498) and then sharing the petition (http://www.causes.com/causes/799563-artists-against-fracking/actions/1697498?open_inviter=true) with your friends and family.
Sean and I wish you a very happy holiday.
