July 26, 2012 – The anti-fracking bicyclist-activist group known as Tour De Frack biked all the way from Butler, PA to DC to talk to their elected officials at the federal level about the harmful effects fracking does to our environment, and JTMP was there to record it for a video. The US Capitol building is too small to house the offices of all the Senators and Representatives, so there are satellite buildings around the US Capitol grounds, where citizens can visit and talk to their elected officials about their concerns on issues.

Jason and the others of Tour De Frack told me that some of the representatives considered fracking to be a state issue, but they told them they feel let down by their state government, and their environment and health are not being protected. They will continue this citizen lobbying effort all week and beyond, and plan to see Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA), James Inhofe (R-OK), and many others. There will also be a music concert tomorrow night, so check back for more video with political music! "No Freakin' Frackin'!" Watch the Hart Senate Office Building visit video below, including interviews of Tour De Frack activists afterwards.
