Activists to rally on Feb. 24 in Medina at Kasich's speech

By Bob Downing Published: February 17, 2014

From Medina County grass-roots groups:











[Medina, OH] Citizens and various organizations from across Ohio will rally

concerning a range of environmental and related community issues at Governor

Kasich's State of the State talk on February 24 in Medina. Demonstrators will

gather at the main entrance to Medina High School (851 Weymouth Rd, Medina

OH 44256) starting at 5 p.m. with signs aloft for the arrival of Governor Kasich.

Causes include






~fracking waste from within and outside of Ohio,



~fracking waste disposal in waste pits, injection wells, and as road brine,



~pipelines scheduled to go through the Medina area.




A majority of Ohioans feel the governor's policies are not moving Ohio towards a

sustainable future. For example: Ohio solar jobs are up 31% in Ohio since 2012,

placing the state 8th nationally in solar jobs. This growth came despite the Kasich

administration's attempt last year to defund Ohio's energy portfolio, passed in

2008 via SB 221, as well as his continued support for unconventional hydraulic

fracturing, which has brought more toxic waste than jobs into Ohio
