Anti-Fracking Groups Rally in Albany, Urge Ban

Jun 19, 2013
(AP)

As about 2,000 opponents of fracking rallied Monday outside New York's Capitol, a new statewide poll showed a slight increase in voters statewide who oppose the method of drilling for natural gas.

The demonstrators cheered announcement of the poll results while urging Gov. Andrew Cuomo to permanently ban hydraulic fracturing for natural gas in New York, saying it will harm the environment. Pending legislation would impose that moratorium, but rally organizers acknowledged it's unlikely to be enacted now.
