No Fracking in Stokes: our new video

As regular readers know, I’ve been involved for the last two years with No Fracking in Stokes, a grassroots group fighting fracking in Stokes County and in North Carolina.

Our group has released a new video, filmed here in Stokes County (except for the shots of actual fracking in the Marcellus shale area of Pennsylvania). The actor is a retired schoolteacher, and the farm where this was shot is just a few miles from the abbey.

That’s the abbey’s garden in one of the photos near the end of the video, and the chicken perched in the Jeep window is an abbey chicken, Fiona.

The original music is by Rex McGee, a Stokes County musician.

    Bless you, bless you for involving yourself in this very important project. Thanks, also, for sharing the video. It seems at times the world has gone nuts. Why would it ever occur to anyone to mar a beautiful and bucolic setting such as Stokes County??? And, that is just one of many sites under threat. Why isn’t conservation, instead of consumption, a top priority with our government – at all levels??? Such short-term thinking and that ugly word, greed, certainly comes into play. On a lighter note, Fiona is now a film star.
