More than 1,000 people joined a massive protest against fracking in Albany, N.Y., this Monday afternoon. After a rally at Corning Preserve Riverside Park, the crowd marched to the capitol and delivered a pledge to resist fracking in New York that has been signed by over 3,000 people.

Gerri Wiley, a resident of Owego, N.Y., said, "An unparalleled grassroots movement in NY is unified in opposition to fracking. The Pledge to Resist Fracking in NY is a stark warning to Governor Cuomo that the amount and level of opposition to fracking will only grow if he moves forward."
