Fracking Ban Headed to Ballot in Youngstown, OH with Community Bill of Rights

#Fracking ban headed to ballot: "The #Youngstown Community Bill of Rights Committee submitted petitions with 2,489 signatures to get a charter-amendment proposal back on the ballot to ban fracking, injection wells and other #shale-gas infrastructure in the city for a sixth time. Most 'voters want to keep our drinking water clean and want the right of local control over whether shale-gas infrastructure such as drilling, injection wells, pipelines, compressor stations, #radioactive waste-streams can locate in our community,' said Susie Beiersdorfer, a committee member. 'Who has the right to decide: the people in the community or drilling and waste-disposal corporations? Do the people have the right to self-govern to protect their health, safety and happiness or do the corporations have a right to profit no matter the cost to the people and the community?'”
