|My name is Andy Harris and I like being FRACKED.|
Last week, Josh Fox, award-winning director of Gasland, was arrested for trying to film a public Congressional hearing on hydrofracking.
This is an unambiguous violation of the First Amendment. But why? What could they be discussing that they don't want the world to know about? If fracking is so safe, there must not be any reason to hide the details, right?
Freedom of the press applies, even on Capitol Hill. Join me in calling on Committee Chair Rep. Andy Harris to apologize, and to allow journalists -- including citizen journalists, bloggers and filmmakers -- to cover hearings.
Thousands have already signed the emergency petition. Join the call to protect our First Amendment rights:
