Environmental Dance Performance by Donald L. Hassig, Green Party

Thursday, August 2, 2012, 7:00 PM Talent Show Start Time

Grandstand Stage,  St. Lawrence County Fairgrounds, Gouverneur, NY USA

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.  I support 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 to Stop”.  I will perform this piece in the
Talent Show event at the St. Lawrence County Fair.  The Talent Show
stage is a wonderful free speech venue.  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 step on the path of the
American people rising up to bring an end to the corporate destruction
of Nature.”-Donald L. Hassig
