Anti-fracking activists are planning a rally Monday tied to Gov. John Kasich’s State of the State address in Medina.

Demonstrators from across Ohio intend to gather at 5 p.m. at the main entrance to Medina High School, 851 Weymouth Road.

Key issues include hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, in the Utica shale, the disposal of drilling wastes, injection wells and the growing number of pipelines, organizers said.

They are calling the protest “a rally for communities and the environment.”

Kasich has come under fire from the activists for his continued support of Utica shale drilling in Eastern Ohio.

Drilling has brought more toxic waste from Pennsylvania and other states than jobs into Ohio, the eco-groups said.
