Sean Lennon’s Op-Ed

Sean Lennon wrote a op-ed for the New York Times on Monday, August 27, 2012.

“A few months ago I was asked by a neighbor near our farm to attend a town meeting at the local high school. Some gas companies at the meeting were trying very hard to sell us on a plan to tear through our wilderness and make room for a new pipeline: infrastructure for hydraulic fracturing. Most of the residents at the meeting, many of them organic farmers, were openly defiant. The gas companies didn’t seem to care. They gave us the feeling that whether we liked it or not, they were going to fracture our little town.”

He and his mother, Yoko Ono, have launched Artists Against Fracking.
