Colette Winlock, Lola Hanif and Lady Sunrise join us this morning to talk about hydraulic fracturing, the process of breaking up shale underneath the Earth's surface to extract natural gas supplies where a series of holes are drilled into the ground which are then pumped with a water/chemical mix which then forces the natural gas out through the fissures in the shale into previously-built wells for extraction. A.k.a. FRACKING, the impact on human beings, let alone the planet is not known, However, there are recorded medical instances of illness associated with fracking and numerous earthquakes (109) in places like Youngtown, Ohio which sits on the Marcelles Shale where there is no record of such since 1776.  Saturday, March 15, 2014 there is a huge demonstration in Sacramento against “fracking”. Health and Human Resource Education Center and Sacred Space Spiritual Support Group have organized a bus for Black folks in Oakland to show their outrage at the total disregard for humanity, Mother Earth, and life itself!  This is an opportunity to come together and take a stand. “GET ON THE BUS” this Saturday. The drill sites are being placed in black neighborhoods. There are only 55 seats available on the bus. Please bring family and friends. Don't forget the children. The cost is only a donation ($1 or more). The bus leaves from Acorn Shopping Center (7th and Market in West Oakland) at 9:30 am and returns from Sacramento at 7:30 pm.  Please RSVP (510) 834-5990 or colette.winlock@gmail.com Watch: http://youtu.be/omPIWpAwNag  Music: Sweet Honey in the Rock: Battered Earth, Greed; WolfHawkJacquer's Every Breath of Life; Babatunde Lea's African Tapestry (Prayer for a Continent). We close with an archival interview with Aisha Brown re: African Americans Making Connections II.
