That’s what Josh Fox is calling it on Facebook.
I know Homeland Security looks at my blog all the time.
Pennsylvania tracks fracking protestors
If you went to see Gasland in Pennsylvania, your name might now be on a watchlist compiled by the Pennsylvania Office of Homeland Security. The agency has reportedly been tracking people who are protesting drilling for natural gas — or fracking — in the giant Marcellus Shale formation. From the Centre Daily:
According to recently leaked documents, the Pennsylvania Office of Homeland Security has been tracking anti-gas drilling groups and their meetings — including a public screening of the film “Gasland,” a documentary about the environmental hazards of natural gas drilling.
The office has included the information in its weekly intelligence bulletins sent to law enforcement agencies.
The bulletins are also sent to gas companies drilling in the Marcellus Shale.
State Homeland Security Director James Powers says he’s worried about vandalism. Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell says he’s looking into it. Pro Publica posted the state’s intelligence bulletin last week. Now the story’s finally getting some legs.
