Folks, this will continue until We, the People of the commonwealth of Pennsylvania, decide we've had enough.
On Saturday, 6/18/2011, I will be protesting not the RiverFest event itself, but the fact that the people who organize RiverFest have accepted sponsorship money from Chesapeake Energy and Williams Energy. As a longtime RiverFest participant, that is unacceptable to me.
Yesterday, I was told I should not draw lines in the sand.
I ask simply: If I don't...who will?
