8/23/12 Media Advisory: Cancer Prevention Dancer to Perform at NY State Fair in Protest Against Hydrofracking

“Stop Abusing Our Mother, Or We the People Will Force You Fracking Oil
and Gas Corporations to Stop” an Environmental Protection Dance
Performance by Donald L. Hassig, Green Party Candidate CD-21 Race

August 23, 2012, Hourly Repeat Performances on the First Day of the
2012 New York State Fair

12:00 PM at the New York State Department of Environmental
Conservation (DEC) Pavilion

2:00 PM at the Youth Building

I love the Earth Mother.  She has given all of us so much.  She has
suffered a terrible onslaught of abuses during the brief history of
the industrial age.  The oil and gas companies are harming our Mother
the Earth far beyond what is acceptable.  The use of high volume
hydraulic fracturing (HVHF) to drill oil and gas wells is an extremely
polluting activity.  This must be stopped.  As the Green Party
candidate in the CD 21 race, I am calling for a total ban on HVHF in
the United States.

“I am a strong believer in the power of dancing and music to move
people higher.  I deeply value my freedom of speech.  I have created
an original dance piece titled, “Stop Abusing Our Mother or We the
People Will Force You Fracking Oil and Gas Corporations to Stop”.  I
performed this piece for the first time in the Talent Show event at
the St. Lawrence County Fair.  The Talent Show stage is a wonderful
free speech venue.  I will be performing this piece in the New York
State Fair Talent Hunt contest.  I am hopeful that the audience will
join into this performance by chanting, “We love our Mother.  We will
protect her now.” and “Stop abusing our Mother now or we will force
you to stop.”  This is one more strong, beautiful step on the path of
the American people rising up to bring an end to the corporate
destruction of Nature.”-Donald L. Hassig
