Time: 7pm-1amReturn to event list.
In order to educate Southern Illinois residents about the dangers of fracking several bands have coordinated with SAFE (Southern Illinoisans Against Fracturing our Environment) to present a free evening of music and guest speakers.
The Woodbox Gang, Hobo Knife and County Graves will perform during an outdoor evening that will include a raffle, auction, and other entertainment. It is suggested that those attending bring lawn chairs or a blanket.
Fracking will cause great harm to Southern IL families and our way of life. Fracking will use millions of gallons of fresh water that cannot be returned to the water table, create potential water & air contamination, and devastate Southern Illinois’s growing tourism industry.
Injection wells used in the fracking process cause earthquakes. SAFE is adamantly opposed to fracking in the highly volatile New Madrid Fault and Wabash Valley Fault in Southern Illinois.
