Please sign the 'Willie Nelson Farm Aid' petition
Willie Nelson's Farm Aid movement is coming to Pennsylvania on September 22, at Hersheypark Stadium. We're petitioning Willie to denounce fracking of American's farmland - from the stage, at this concert.

The concert is officially "Sold Out", with over 29,000 tickets already sold. It would be a tremendous benefit to farmers, as well as to the anti-fracking movement, to combine this audience, these musicians, and this message in such a great venue.
Here is the text of the petition:
We, family farmers and those of us who who eat their food, are deeply concerned about fracking for natural gas. We want safe water and air for our families, animals and crops. We don't want toxins whose names we can't pronounce, whose ill effects are being minimized, and whose early victims are already silenced by legal gag orders.
We appeal to the very soul of Farm Aid -- the organization dedicated to keeping the family farm alive -- to founder Willie Nelson, to Neil Young, to John Mellencamp and to Dave Matthews: On September 22nd, from the stage at the Farm Aid Concert in Hershey, PA, denounce the fracking of farmlands across the country, where the food that grows a strong America comes from.
Say loudly and clearly what we all know to be true: Fracking threatens the American heartland, farmers livelihoods, and ultimately our lives.
