I am overjoyed to be part of an environmental protection march.  I
love the idea of proclaiming our intentions of resisting hydraulic
fracturing if drilling is allowed to commence in New York.  I signed
The Pledge to Resist Hydrofracking in New York today.  Additionally, I
am committed to resisting hydraulic fracturing for oil and gas in the
state of Montana.  I have initiated a dialogue with the Fort Peck
Tribal Executive Board in eastern Montana pursuant to building support
for the establishment of a prohibition against fracking on the Fort
Peck Reserve.  This reserve is home to the Assiniboine and the Sioux.
I have a long history of connectedness to the wilds of Montana.  I
will be in the state of Montana this Fall and Winter resisting

“Resisting hydraulic fracturing is the work of all those who care
about the Earth and the inhabitants of the Earth.  I will resist
fracking in Montana and New York because these are the parts of
America that I love most.  I am so happy that New Yorkers are
committing themselves to mounting strong resistance to fracking.  This
is so exciting.  New Yorkers resisting hydrofracking is likely to be
one of the major currents that moves our Nation fully into revolution
mode.”-Donald L. Hassig

Candidate Hassig will perform variations upon his environmental dance
piece, titled, “Stop Abusing Our Mother or We the People Will Force
You Fracking Corporations to Stop”.  Performances will take place at
the Amphitheater starting point and at the Capitol end point of the
March for The Pledge to Resist Hydrofracking in New York.  Additional
dance performances will be given at strategic locations in the Empire
State Plaza.  The grand finale dance performance will be given at 1:30
PM at the main entrance to the Corning Tower, the headquarters of the
New York State Department of Health.  The Corning Tower is located in
the Empire State Plaza.
