FLCC students rally against hydrofracking

Finger Lakes Environmental Action, a student club at Finger Lakes Community College, will hold an anti-hydrofracking rally on Wednesday, Oct. 27, from 4 to 9 p.m.

The event will be held in Stage 13 on the second floor of the main campus at 3325 Marvin Sands Drive. It will feature live music and speakers. Due to construction on campus, parking is in the Constellation Brands Marvin Sands Performing Arts Center lot, accessible via Route 364.

Speakers include Peter Gamba of Branchport, Yates County, a founding member of the Committee to Preserve the Finger Lakes. Hydrofracking involves pumping high pressure streams of water and chemicals into the Marcellus shale deposits beneath the Finger Lakes region to free natural gas.
