Triple Divide Screening March 5 With Film Makers

Triple Divide is said to be the only documentary of its kind on the controversial subject of fracking. Capable of speaking to all sides, it features exclusive interviews from the industry, experts, and Americans suffering in the wake of shale gas development. “It’s the best movie on fracking to date [using] facts, not fiction or spin” wrote Pennsylvania resident, Robert Donnan. Academy Award nominated actor Mark Ruffalo co-narrates the film, taking part in the project after being shown an online screener a few weeks before the final release.

TIME: Wednesday, March 5th at 6:30 p.m.
LOCATION: Unitarian Universalist Congregation, 183 Riverside Dr. in Binghamton
We are asking for a $5 donation to cover the film-maker's travel expenses.

3. Friday, February 28
Pro-fracking Astorino is holding a fundraiser in Binghamton and it's an important opportunity for us to rally outside of it to break through his misinformation and lies about fracking with the science and facts. Astorino would like to sacrifice those of us in the Southern Tier to fracking, blatantly disregarding the science showing that fracking would poison our water and harm the health of our families.
As he gets more and more attention, we can't let Astorino go unchallenged with New Yorkers and in the news as he continues to tout grossly exaggerated job estimates from fracking and falsely claim the process is safe and beneficial. Because of his growing role as gas industry shill, we have coined the name and Twitter hashtag #Gastorino. If you can’t make it to the rally, join us on social media as we give #Gastorino the facts on fracking. Tweet it: http://www.ctt.ec/72Bdr
Time: 5 p.m.
Location: On the sidewalk outside of the Hilton Doubletree, 225 Water St., Binghamton, N.Y.
