A national protest against fracking is planned July 28 in Washington, D.C.
The 2 p.m. rally is billed as Stop the Frack Attack.
The protestors will present three demands to Congtress: stop dangerous fracking, close seven legal loopholes that exempt the oil and gas industry from parts of the federal Safe Drinking Water, Clean Air and Clean Water acts and support 100 percent clean renewable energy.
Celebrity supporters include Mark Ruffalo, Pete Seeger, Lois Gibbs, Bill McKibben, Ed Begley Jr., Ed Asner, Josh Fox, Gus Speth, James Hansen and Margot Kidder.
The rally will be on the West Lawn of the Capitol.
More than 100 grass-roots groups across the country are involved.
