“Remembering the Earthquakes”:  Supporters of Frackfree America National Coalition, based in Youngstown, Ohio, will attend a prayer service conducted by Reverend Monica Beasley-Martin to commemorate the upcoming seventh anniversary of the now-famous December 31, 2011 Youngstown, Ohio, magnitude 4.0, man-made earthquake linked to a fracking waste injection well.
Concerned citizens will gather for the prayer on public property on Thursday, December 27, 2018, at 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM at the gazebo on the village green at Brookfield Center, Brookfield, Ohio 44403

       With yet another fracking waste injection well being proposed for our region in Hubbard Township this year, in addition to the five (yes-five!) proposed injection wells for Brookfield, Ohio, concerned citizens are even more concerned about the public health, safety, and well-being of our neighborhoods and homes.  Concerned citizens say that the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) must halt the injection wells since they pose an unacceptable risk to water, air, and land, including potential injection-well related, man-made earthquakes.  
       Ohio cannot be used as a toxic fracking waste dumping ground, they say.
       Therefore, supporters of  Frackfree America National Coalition, (FANC) based in Youngstown, Ohio, will attend a prayer service conducted by Reverend Monica Beasley-Martin, of Defenders of the Earth Outreach Mission, to commemorate the upcoming seventh anniversary of the now-famous December 31, 2011 Youngstown, Ohio, magnitude 4.0,  man-made earthquake linked to a fracking waste injection well.[1]
       Concerned citizens will gather for the prayer on public property on Thursday, December 27, 2018, at 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM at the gazebo on the village green at Brookfield Center, Brookfield, Ohio 44403 at 379 Ohio Route 7.
       All media and the public are invited to attend.
       The Facebook Event page can be viewed at:   https://www.facebook.com/events/614959222257409/
       A focus of the event will be calling for ODNR to halt the injection wells to protect public health and safety, and for ODNR to keep the media and the public immediately notified of any potential earthquakes possibly due to injection. This would include all potential quakes, even those below magnitude 1.0.   Transparency is of the utmost importance, groups say.
       For more information about Brookfield and our region, injection wells, and man-made earthquakes and more, please see the comment/ objection to the proposed Brookfield injection wells submitted to ODNR on December 25, 2017:
