Marcellus Protest is a grassroots, all-volunteer group located in and around Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. We work to prevent (where possible) and to limit (where necessary) the operations of "fracking" for natural gas.

Formed in 2010, Marcellus Protest played a role in the adoption that year of a total ban on fracking within the City of Pittsburgh. To our knowledge, Pittsburgh is the first city in the world to take this position.
Marcellus Protest operates as a 401(c)3 under the tax laws of the United States, as a "project" of the Thomas Merton Center of Pittsburgh.
