An hour ago Sean Lennon put up this great Don’t Frack My Mother PSA in which he along side amazing proactive celebs that include Adrian Grenier, Alexa Chung, Ben Lee, Carrie Fisher, Daniel Pinchbeck, Devendra Banhart, Fred Armisen, Ione Skye, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Josh Fox, Liv Tyler, Lindsey Wixson, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Mark Ronson, Melissa Auf Der Maur, Michael Skolnik, Natasha Lyonne, Penn Badgley, Reggie Watts, Sean Lennon, Susan Sarandon, Yoko Ono, and Zoë Kravitz (to name just one or two 🙂 ) sing the catchy Don’t Front My Mother song. It also features band members from: Au Revoir Simone, Black Lips, Cibo Matto, The Citizens Band, The Like, The Strokes, Wilco, Wild Belle
Yoko and Sean were compelled into action by Governor Andrew Cuomo’s announcement that fracking might soon begin in New York – directly impacting their home in upstate New York. In less than 10 days, they gathered nearly 150 fellow artists to join them in the founding of Artists Against Fracking in August 2012.
“Today, at nearly 200 members Artists Against Fracking works to expose and stop the harmful and contaminating practice of fracking for natural gas and oil through mass awareness and peaceful democratic action. At its core, we believe that fracking for shale gas is a danger to New Yorkers. Inevitably, the process leads to the release of toxic chemicals — many of which are unknown and unreported — into our air and water.”
