Activists protest to ‘Stop Cove Point Project’ and fracking

Emily Wurth

More than  a thousand environmental activists gathered at the War Memorial Plaza in Baltimore at noon Thursday to try to stop the Cove Point project. It is a planned “mega-fracked gas export facility.”

It is owned by Dominion, a Virginia-based  company, and it’s located on the Chesapeake Bay in Calvert County, Southern Maryland.

At the moment, Dominion is attempting to secure “an essential permit” for building the project from the Maryland Public Service Commission. After the rally at the plaza, the activists marched over to the building housing the offices of the PSC and Gov. Martin O’Malley to make their protest known with loud music and even louder catcalls.
