Title
Catskills Citizens -- No Frack
Work Type
Sticker
Political sticker
Date
2019
Location
Catskill, New York (state), United States
Description
This is a visually simple sticker. The word "Frack" stands in the middle of a white background with a bright red universal "no" symbol stamped across it. Underneath the image is the URL address to the Catskills Citizens group, an all-volunteer, grassroots organization and community that began in the Catskills region of New York but now has members throughout the country. Catskills Citizens do not think that fracking--a mining technique that involves injecting high-pressure liquids into subterranean rocks in order to force open fissures in order to extract oil or gas--is not a solution or replacement for clean and safe energy. The simple design of the sticker allows the viewer to not be distracted or miss the main message: fracking is bad.
